Steven Fitzmaurice is a Grammy Award-winning mixer and producer based in London, UK. His credits include albums for Depeche Mode, Seal, Kylie Minogue, Geri Halliwell, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs and U2.

Born in Ireland, Fitzmaurice moved to London in 1987 to carve out a career in music. He began working at Sarm Studios under the watchful eye of mixer Julian Mendelsohn and producer Trevor Horn, leaving in 1992 for The Hit Factory in New York City where he worked on records by Eric Clapton and Jodeci and recorded the as-yet undiscovered Timbaland. Fitzmaurice went freelance in New York and soon started to mix all of Trevor Horn's records. These included Seal's second album, for which he received his first Grammy nomination for Best Engineered Recording. The following year, Fitzmaurice won his first Grammy when "Kiss from a Rose", which he mixed, picked up the award for Record of the Year. He has gone on to work with a diverse array of artists including Brett Anderson, Ian Brown, Depeche Mode, The Frames, Gemma Hayes, Olly Murs, Kylie Minogue, Kate Nash, Tina Turner, U2 and Wendy & Lisa.
