Bruce Springsteen will be awarded the prestigious Les Paul Award at the 19th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, to be held Saturday, October 11, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. Also during the ceremony, famed engineer/producer Eddie Kramer will be inducted into the TEC Awards Hall of Fame.
Working with several of the most talented engineers of the era, Springsteen has crafted some of the most powerful and distinctive records of the past 30 years. From the boisterous Born to Run through his moving 2002 album, The Rising, he has produced a string of Platinum albums, headlined sold-out stadium tours and garnered nine Grammy Awards and an Oscar.
Kramer has worked on classic recordings by Traffic, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, but he is best known for his work with Jimi Hendrix. Kramer engineered all of Hendrix’s original albums (Are You Experienced?, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland and Band of Gypsys) and helped Hendrix create and design Electric Lady recording studio. Kramer has also had a successful career as a producer of live albums, working with KISS, Peter Frampton, Joe Cocker, David Bowie and Santana, among others.
