At the 141st International Audio Engineering Society Convention in Los Angeles, the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing announced its 2016-2017 Steering Committee. The newly seated Committee comprises engineers, producers and audio professionals who, building upon the significant legacy established by prior Steering Committees, will work to address key issues confronting music production and promote meaningful solutions to help move the industry forward.
The P&E Wing continues to advocate for excellence in sound recording, audio technologies and education in the recording arts, along with recognition and rights for music creators overall.
The 2016–2017 Steering Committee is chaired by Grammy Award-winners Ed Cherney and Ann Mincieli, and includes Jeff Balding, Ivan Barias, Matt Hennessy, Ken "Duro" Ifill, Thom "TK" Kidd, Manny Marroquin, Morgan Page and Piper Payne.
Also serving as members of the Committee are John Poppo, chair of The Recording Academy Board of Trustees, and Neil Portnow, the Academy's President and CEO.
"This extraordinary group of accomplished individuals encompasses the cross-industry experience and diverse perspectives that will set our agenda for the year and prioritize the initiatives that matter most to our members,” says Maureen Droney, The Recording Academy Managing Director, Producers & Engineers Wing and Recording Technology.
