Record Producers

Right IconThis ranking is based on an algorithm that combines various factors, including the votes of our users and search trends on the internet.

Record producers—also known as music producers—are the professionals who oversee and manage the sound recording and production of a band or an artiste’s music. They play a major role in the success of any artiste’s career. Everyone knows how famous the Beatles were at one point of time, but just a few would be aware of the role their record producer Sir George Martin played in their massive success! As the band was composed of young men still wet behind the ears, it was the more experienced Martin who ensured that their records only featured the best the band had to offer to the world. Berry Gordy, the founder of the Motown record label, was yet another formidable record producer who produced music for Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, and Marvin Gaye, and was responsible for all the wonderful songs these artistes released! When talking of record producers, how can we forget the man who managed the music of the legendary Elvis Presley? While Sam Phillips gained fame for producing records for Elvis, he also worked with other great musical stars like Howlin’ Wolf, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. Read on to learn more about the life and works of famous record producers from across the globe!
