ARIA Awards 2010 : News

In addition to the six inductees, ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) is proud to announce that manager, record company executive, concert promoter, music publisher and artist advocate JOHN WOODRUFF will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2007 ARIA HALL OF FAME event on Wednesday July 18th at Melbourne's Plaza Ballroom (Regent Theatre).
...
Now John Woodruff becomes the next recipient to be bestowed this prestigious honour before his peers.
John Woodruff commenced his career in Adelaide and has been responsible for nurturing some of Australia's greatest music talents from the beginning of their careers to international heights, among them The Angels, Icehouse, Johnny Diesel and the Injectors, Baby Animals and the world breaking, chart topping Savage Garden.
...
In the late 1970s John Woodruff, together with Ray Hearn and Rod Willis, formed Dirty Pool Artist Management.
...
By changing the system, John brought balance and fairness in remuneration between the parties.
Before the advent of the current trend of downloading music files legally and illegally, John was at the forefront of presenting a forum at Parliament House in Canberra to demonstrate how artists' rights could be damaged by such activities. As a result, changes were made to the copyright act in regard to digital rights, which protect artists to some degree to this day. His foresight in such areas as this led to the formation of The Music Managers Forum of which he was a founding member. The organisation has since grown to become an international body, the International Music Managers Forum (IMMF), that allows artist managers from around the globe to discuss changes in various territories and business sectors to the betterment of their artists and also to act as a lobby group for performers.
John Woodruff's list of credentials is long and impressive and also includes being the founder and co-publisher of Australia's only music industry trade magazine, The Music Network. Since being informed of this honour, I have come to realise more and more with every passing day, just how much it means to me personally and to the wonderful people around me. I am humbled and deeply moved. It's a great feeling that 'you know what, somebody did notice'. I've often said that I am the luckiest bastard alive, and this just goes further to prove it', said John Woodruff.
Denis Handlin AM, ARIA Chairman and long time friend of John's said: Woody is one of the best blokes I've ever met both professionally and personally.
