Michael Lloyd


Oral History Information

Michael Lloyd is among the most prolific recording producers of the 1970s and 80s. His long list of successes include the Dirty Dancing movie soundtrack and Debbie Boone’s 70s mega hit “You Light Up My Life.” Michael has been equally innovative in the use in his recordings of electronic musical instruments such as synthesizers and the mellotron. In fact his own mellotron, which was originally owned by Karen Carpenter and used on several of Michael’s own recordings, is currently on display in the NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, California.
