Symbolic of a new era at London’s Abbey Road Studios, multiple Grammy Award winning producer, guitarist, arranger, composer and Hifi Pig favourite Nile Rodgers (of The CHIC Organization) has been appointed to the specially created role of Chief Creative Advisor at the Studios.

In a unique partnership celebrating a shared legacy and vision for creative innovation, Rodgers will establish Abbey Road as his primary UK creative base and serve as the Studios’ global artist ambassador. He will also advise on Abbey Road’s experiments in audio technology, including Spatial Audio.

Of the new role, Nile Rodgers says: “I have been blessed with a career that has provided some of the highest highs an artist, writer and producer can experience. From the first time I heard The Beatles I Want To Hold Your Hand, I dreamt of Abbey Road. Forget about practice getting you to Carnegie Hall, I wanted to get to Abbey Road!”

“To be Abbey Road’s Chief Creative Advisor, its first and only, is something I consider a great responsibility and I would like to thank not only the Abbey Road team for entrusting me with this duty, but also Sir Paul for his congratulations.”
