It’s no exaggeration to describe Paul Epworth as the most influential British producer of his generation. Nor is it hyperbole to also call him the most successful and in-demand, too. His recent production roll-call reads like a must-have list for right-minded music fans: Adele’s ‘21’, Florence + The Machine’s ‘Ceremonials’ and ‘Lungs’, The Big Pink’s ‘Brief History Of Love’ (including their huge radio hit ‘Dominos’) and ‘Future This’, Foster The People ‘Torches’, Cee-Lo Green’s ‘The Lady Killer’, Friendly Fires’s ‘Pala’, Plan B’s ‘The Defamation Of Strickland Banks’, notably the massive, definitive ‘Stay Too Long’ single…There aren’t many individuals that can lay claim to single-handedly shaping the music of a generation, but Paul Epworth is among them. This lasting contribution was given worldwide recognition when he picked up four key Grammy awards in 2012 in the categories of Record Of the Year (‘Rollin’ In The Deep’ – Adele); Song Of The Year (‘Rollin’ In The Deep’, which he co-wrote with Adele); Album Of The Year (’21’ – Adele); Producer Of The Year.
Since the turn of the millennium, Paul has continually set his profession’s gold standard, while his relentless experimentation has explored the furthest reaches of sound design and song-writing. Drawing on everything from hip hop to punk, from soul to electro, he has played a key role in shaping the sound not just of the best records in the charts, but also of British alternative music on the whole.
