Stephen Lipson is one of the UK’s leading record producers and songwriters.

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.”
