The Recording Academy® Producers & Engineers Wing® has announced its 2012-2013 Steering Committee, the leadership group of the P&E Wing, which researches and recommends solutions for technical and economic issues facing today's music production professionals. The newly seated Committee, consisting of a diverse array of music engineers, producers and audio professionals, will build upon the significant legacy established by prior Steering Committees and work to identify and evaluate key issues confronting music production professionals, with the goal of finding meaningful solutions and suggestions for the industry moving forward.
