Mark Ronson came by the Recording Academy's Santa Monica headquarters and shared some thoughts on his role as producer, for example with Bruno Mars and Amy Winehouse. "I'm incredibly fortunate because those are two of the most talented singer/ songwriter/ performers of the past 30 years," said Ronson. "I'm really lucky that they both ended up at my doorstep." Born in London, Ronson began his career as a DJ in New York in the late '90s. In 2006 Ronson produced Winehouse's album Back To Black, winning Best Pop Vocal Album at the 50th GRAMMY Awards, as well as Record Of The Year for "Rehab" and contributing to the Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical win for Ronson himself, along with his extensive other work that year. Ronson earned a GRAMMY nomination for Record Of The Year as a co-producer of Mars' 2013 No. 1 hit, "Locked Out Of Heaven." In 2014 Ronson and Mars reunited for the hit "Uptown Funk" featured on Ronson's solo album Uptown Special. At the 58th GRAMMY Awards their recording won Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
