Inaugural awards show, “recognizing the faces behind the sound,” reveals honorees in 16 categories

Live ceremony was highlighted by presentations from Neil Young and Sir Paul McCartney

LOS ANGELES, CA, July 11, 2014 — The Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica, California, was the place to be on June 28, 2014, as a standing-room-only crowd gathered for the inaugural Pensado Awards, an award show created by the producers of the acclaimed online video series Pensado’s Place. A live video production of the ceremony is now online on the Pensado’s Place YouTube channel at http://youtu.be/sB7r2u2EWRs. The ceremony hosted a crowd of over 600 recording industry figures – some as proud nominees, some as presenters, some there to simply be a part of the evening – including Martina McBride, Neil Young, Rami Jaffee (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam), Manny Marroquin (Bruno Mars, Rolling Stones, Imagine Dragons), Jack Joseph Puig (Florence + the Machine, U2, Lady Gaga), Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Black Eyed Peas, Keyshia Cole) and many more. A special highlight was a taped tribute to the winner of the Pensado Giant Award from Sir Paul McCartney.

Co-hosts included singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb along with producer-engineers Chris Lord-Alge (Muse, Pink, Foo Fighters, Avril Lavigne, Green Day, Daughtry, Paramore, Black Eyed Peas), Marcella Araica (Britney Spears, Madonna, Pink, Duran Duran, Keri Hilson) and Young Guru (Jay Z, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey).
