Peter Frampton To Receive Music Biz Chairman’s Award

Peter Frampton is being honored by the Music Business Association with its Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement at the Music Biz 2019 Awards & Hall of Fame Dinner on May 7. The awards are part of the Music Biz 2019 Conference set for May 5-8 at the JW Marriott in downtown Nashville.

“We could think of no artist more deserving of an award for sustained creative achievement than Peter Frampton, who has fashioned a storied career through his solo efforts, co-founding of a supergroup and his extraordinary collaborations with fellow industry legends,” commented Music Biz Chairman Steve Harkins. “This will be the third time Peter has graced the Music Biz stage; once in 1977 to honor his landmark live record Frampton Comes Alive!, again as part of the 2006 Universal Music Showcase, and this year to rightfully honor him as a music industry icon and a true bastion in the history of Rock music.”

The prestigious Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement recognizes artists and innovators who have achieved the highest levels of continued artistic achievement in the music industry. Past recipients include Nile Rodgers, Reba McEntire, The Doobie Brothers, Lionel Richie, Cyndi Lauper, Garth Brooks, Chicago, Kool & The Gang, Liza Minnelli, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Rogers, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Nat King Cole, Santana, Lena Horne, and Benny Goodman, among many others.

Frampton just announced the Peter Frampton Band will release its new album entitled All Blues on June 7 via UMe. Recorded with his longtime touring band, made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums), the album is a collection of Frampton’s favorite blues classics.

In February, Frampton made public his diagnosis of Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) which has prompted him to announce his retirement from regular touring at the end of this year. His retirement will come at the conclusion of “The Peter Frampton Finale – The Farewell Tour” which will run across the U.S. and Canada from June through mid-October.
