Ken Scott

Ken Scott (born April 20, 1947 in London) is an influential English record producer and recording engineer.

Scott's start, at the age of 16, came from the world-renowned EMI studios, where he initially worked in the tape library. Within a very short time he had worked his way up to the position of recording engineer and found himself working with such acts as The Beatles, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, The Hollies, Procol Harum, and many more.

Following a move to London's famed Trident Studios, he garnered a Clio award (for "I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke"), two Grammy nominations and millions of record sales with such artists as Elton John, George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and America.

He went on to produce David Bowie, Supertramp, The Tubes, Dixie Dregs, Devo, Missing Persons, Kansas and Level 42, once again leading to millions of sales and still more Grammy nominations. More recently Scott has worked with Duran Duran, George Harrison and the George Harrison Estate.
