- Interview with Phil Ramone gets crowd on their feet -

London, United Kingdom - Dan Daley hosted and moderated a full day of panels and interviews to a sold-out conference audience at Production Magic (www.musictank.co.uk/production_magic), Europe's leading music producers' event. At the event, which took place on Nov. 11 and was held at the Magic Circle Theater in London, Dan moderated panels that covered topics including the role of the producer in a changing music industry landcape, and new business and revenue models for music production. Panelists included producers Nile Rodgers (Chic), Hugh Padgham (The Bee Gees, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Police), and Magnus Fiennes (Bobby Womack, Bryan Ferry, Neneh Cherry, Seal, Daniel Lanois), as well as entrepreneurs Safta Jaffery (Taste Music), Olly Barnes (U-Myx) and Johan Vjosmeir (Sellaband.com). The centerpiece of the day was Dan's one-on-one interview with renowned producer Phil Ramone (Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, Julian Lennon), which drew a standing ovation.

Production Magic is a co-venture between Music Tank and the University of Westminster.

“Dan's performance at the event this year was outstanding,” states Jonathan Robinson, Programme Director for Music Tank. “His wide-ranging industry contacts and knowledge helped us secure several of the major names at this year's event, and assured an excellent exchange of information and perspectives for both the panelists and the audience.”
