The Australian Music Industry Council’s chief executive, Richard Glynn, has published a list of the country’s most famous producers.
Mr Glynn said that for him it was a matter of pride to have produced such iconic music, and had been doing so for more than 50 years.
“If you look at the people that have produced the biggest hits of the last 40 years, they’ve all had their own distinctive style,” he said.
“The most important thing in the world is music.
We all have a voice.
It’s important that we have that voice.”
Mr Glynns list includes the likes of Frank Sinatra, Elton John, Mick Jagger, George Michael and Neil Young.
The most popular artist on the list is James Blake, who is a member of the group Oasis.
He was a key player in the Beatles and helped them to break into the charts in the late 1970s.
“He was the catalyst for a wave of pop that led to the formation of some of the most iconic music acts in the history of the world,” Mr Glynn explained.
“What we’re seeing now is that pop culture is really evolving and that we need to continue to listen to it.”
The list also includes country artists like Bob Dylan, Hank Williams Jr and Hank Williams III.
“I don’t think the music is changing,” he added.
“It’s all about music.
There’s a lot of artists in Australia who have been at it for a long time, who have produced a great amount of music.”
Mr Lyle said there was a real change in the way music was produced in Australia.
“You don’t see a lot that’s really original anymore,” he told ABC News.
“People are now using a lot more digital technology and they’re doing it more digitally.”
That’s what I find really fascinating.
“Mr Jagger also featured in the list, and said he enjoyed the new age of music.”
Music is so important to people in the 21st century, and it’s an industry that’s going to keep growing and it just seems like the future is ahead of us,” he explained.
The list has been released in conjunction with the National Centre for Music and Arts.
