Often referred to as ‘The Man Who Invented The Eighties’, Trevor has been at the forefront of technological innovation in a career that has generated innumerable classic singles and albums. If the success of a record producer can be judged by the weight of awards on their shelves then Horn ranks as the world’s number one. He has a hat trick of Brit Awards for Best British Producer from 1983, 1985 and 1992. In the 80s he was Rolling Stone’s Producer of the Year 1983. In the 90s, Best Producer at the 1991 Q Awards. In the 00s, Music Week’s 2004 Producer of the Year. And in 2014 The Music Producers Guild honored Trevor with Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award.
After forming The Buggles and recording the chart topping hit 'Video Killed the Radio Star', also well-remembered as the first ever music video to be shown on MTV in 1981, Horn has produced some of the most iconic records of the eighties, including three of the biggest selling singles of not only that decade, but of UK chart history: Band Aid ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’, Frankie Goes To Hollywood ‘Relax’ / ‘Two Tribes’.
Trevor Horn’s resume can boast an eclectic line-up of Paul McCartney, Cher, Tina Turner, Gary Barlow, Belle and Sebastian, Kylie Minogue, John Legend, Lisa Stansfield, Marc Almond, Jeff Beck, David Jordan, Genesis, Tom Jones and Olly Murs.
Now in his fifth decade as a record producer, Trevor has recently enjoyed Top 20 albums with The Overtones, Spandau Ballet and long-term collaborator Seal.
