The Music Producers Guild is delighted to announce that Sean Davies, an internationally acclaimed studio designer, technical engineer and authority on disc cutting lathes, will be presented with a Special Recognition Award at the MPG Awards 2014, which take place in London next month.

Renowned as an audio consultant, Davies is also at the heart of the UK and European disc cutting business thanks to his extensive knowledge of cutting techniques, lacquers and the ins and outs of the equipment needed to cut a vinyl record.
He first became interested in audio at the age of 13 when he began repairing broken radios and cutting discs at home. His hobby developed into a career when he was offered a job at IBC Studios, initially in the maintenance department and then in the disc cutting operation. Davies' reputation as an expert soon spread, securing him other key technical positions until he eventually founded his own company, SW Davies Ltd, which specialises in maintaining high quality disc-cutting lathes and supporting cutting facilities around the world.

Although he recently announced his retirement after 53 years in the professional audio industry, Davies is still acting as a consultant – most notably for the recently launched Art of Vinyl (AoV), a new maintenance business headed by the former-Metropolis Mastering engineer Crispin Murray and audio/video equipment repair specialist Duncan Crimmins.

Ray Staff, of the MPG's Mastering Group which nominated Sean Davies for a prestigious Special Recognition Award, says: "I am so pleased Sean is receiving this acknowledgment. He has been my mentor for over 40 years. Sean is a generous educator, gifted with the ability to explain often complex theories, simply and clearly. His skills and knowledge have benefited every aspect of recording, mastering, manufacturing and design. He is a truly unique man in our industry."

Sean Davies will be presented with his award at the MPG 2014 Awards ceremony, which takes place on February 13th at the at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.

Now firmly established as a must-attend industry event, the MPG Awards attract music industry stars and VIPs who turn out in force to celebrate the enormous contribution that recording professionals make to the success of the UK’s music industry. In 2014, the MPG is once again collaborating with the BRITS to present the winner of its Producer of the Year Award with a BRIT Award for Best Producer.
