SAN FRANCISCO: Early this year, the Queen of England awarded, multi-Platinum record producer Steve Lillywhite with a Commander of The British Empire (CBE) for his contributions to music. While some might consider this honor the culmination of a thirty-year career, Lillywhite promptly returned to the recording studio, where he has been busy producing new records for The Killers, Dave Matthews Band & Thirty Seconds To Mars. On Friday, October 26, Lillywhite will take another break from his studio chores to present the Keynote Address for the 133rd AES Convention at SF’s Moscone Center.

“Steve Lillywhite is a Producer Of The Year Grammy-winner who has made an indelible impact on popular music,” remarked AES Convention Co-Chair, Jim McTigue. “He has collaborated with a stunning array of artists. His discography boasts a remarkable list of critically acclaimed and commercially successful projects including eight albums with U2, 4 with the Dave Matthews Band and a who’s who list representing each of the last 3 decades.

“He has made an indelible impact on contemporary music and he continues to hone the razor edge with major new projects. His insights, into the art of producing and engineering, coupled with his perspective on the impact of technology shifts and changes in recording styles, promises to provide AES attendees with inspiration, enlightenment and, unforgettable anecdotes,” McTigue says.
