Peter Asher’s legendary music career began in 1964 as one-half of the singing duo Peter & Gordon, who amassed nine “Top 20” records during their career. After heading A & R for the Beatles record company, Apple, Peter then founded Peter Asher Management, which became one of the most successful Artist Management companies in the U.S. Most recently, through his current company, Remote Control, Peter has been music producer for the Tony-winning play, Bright Star, and music producer for performances at the 2017 Coachella.

Asher’s roster of artist clients includes such world-class recording artists as James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, and Carole King. As a producer, Asher has worked with such diverse artists as Morrissey, Elvis Costello, 10,000 Maniacs, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Ringo Starr, Cher, Robin Williams, Jane Monheit, Robbie Williams, Kenny Loggins, Heart, The Dixie Chicks, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Hans Zimmer and Billy Joel, among many others.

His productions have been awarded 37 RIAA-certified gold albums and 22 platinum albums in the U.S., and many more internationally. In addition, Peter has produced twelve Grammy® Award-winning recordings, and has twice been honored individually with the Grammy® Award for “Producer of the Year.” The PBS special and the shorter studio session mini-documentaries for Songmasters’ tributes to Buddy Holly (Listen To Me: Buddy Holly), for which Peter produced the music, received three Telly Awards in 2012. He has also received numerous international awards and currently serves as a member of the Recording Academy’s Board of Governors.
