When we were contacted by the Music Producers Guild in 2009 to be part of this new organisation, we jumped at the chance. The MPG is the first of its kind in the UK and aims to celebrate the often unknown heroes of music; from music producers to engineers, mixers and re-mixers.
The Awards themselves take place in February and the shortlist has just been announced.
We are proud sponsors of the Live Music Production category, and are happy to see long time Shure users The Who in the shortlist. It is also great to see other Shure users in the Shortlist too, including Simon Gogerly – we wish him luck!
…the actual Awards themselves are provided by Shure – and they are a special limited edition Gold version of our 55SH microphone.
I’ll be attending the awards so hope to take a few backstage pictures – keep your eye on the blog!
Some big names in rock music came together last week with a charity gig in aid of KILLING Cancer. Bryan Adams, Richard Ashcroft, Jeff Beck, Debbie Harry & headliners The Who joined forces at Hammmersmith Apollo to raise awareness for this Charity.
KILLING Cancer supports Photodynamic Therapy, a treatment which could potentially treat many of the most devastating cancers and medical conditions.
Pictures of the gig are available, and judging by them, it seemed that a good time was had by all.
