MPG Winners

The 2013 Music Producers Guild Awards took place at Cafe de Paris in London on 8th February, with a total of 18 awards being presented. The top award for Producer of the Year – which also gives the winner the BRIT Award for Best Producer – went to Paul Epworth for his work on Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials.

Steve Levine, Chairman of the Music Producers Guild, said: “When it comes to talent and creativity, British music production has a long legacy that is internationally recognised and respected. Younger recording professionals are the life blood of our industry, and we are delighted that so many of them have been Award recipients this year. Recording professionals play a vitally important part in the success of the UK and international music industry and we are happy to honour their achievements, not just to give them the accolades they deserve, but also to motivate the next generation of 100,000 music students in the UK who will be the producers and engineers of the future.”
