Biography

Phillip Harvey Spector (born Harvey Phillip Spector, December 26, 1939) is an American record producer, songwriter, and the originator of the Wall of Sound production method.

Following collaborations with John Lennon, George Harrison, Leonard Cohen, Dion DiMucci, and the Ramones in the 1970s, Spector remained largely inactive. In the 2000s, he became the subject of two trials for murder and a second-degree conviction. He is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life.

Biography

Phillip Harvey Spector (born Harvey Phillip Spector, December 26, 1939) is an American record producer, songwriter, and the originator of the Wall of Sound production method. At the height of his career, Spector was a pioneer of the 1960s girl-group sound, and produced more than twenty-five Top 40 hits from 1960 to 1965, writing or co-writing many of them for artists such as the Ronettes and the Crystals. Following collaborations with John Lennon, George Harrison, Leonard Cohen, Dion DiMucci, and the Ramones in the 1970s, Spector remained largely inactive. In the 2000s, he became the subject of two trials for murder and a second-degree conviction. He is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life.

Spector is often called the first auteur among musical artists for acting not only as a producer, but also the creative director, writing or choosing the material, supervising the arrangements, conducting the vocalists and session musicians, and masterminding all phases of the recording process. He helped pave the way for various music genres, with numerous artists later citing his work as a major influence.
