Stephen Lipson


Image and video hosting by TinyPic Stephen Lipson is one of the UK’s leading record producers and songwriters. People say the test of a truly great record producer isn’t whether or not they’ve had a couple of hits but whether they can keep having them. If that’s the case then Stephen Lipson is up there with the greats. Witty, irreverent, fiercely intelligent and passionate about music, Stephen has been making records professionally for over 30 years and shows no sign of letting up.


From his beginnings as an engineer at Sarm Studios in 1983 Stephen Lipson has been involved in the making of some of pop music’s landmark records from Grace Jones’ “Slave To The Rhythm,” all of Annie Lennox’s solo albums, right up to Will Young’s single “Leave Right Now.”


In addition to the previously mentioned artists, Stephen’s discography reads like a who’s who of household names: The Rolling Stones, Pet Shop Boys, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Simple Minds, Whitney Houston, Natalie Imbruglia, Paul McCartney, the list goes on. Recently, Stephen has worked on Jeff Beck’s Grammy winning album “Emotion & Commotion” as well as Juanes’ highly acclaimed “P.A.R.C.E.”
