The Maple Jam Music Group issued the following statement:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maple Jam Music Group President, Greg Ladanyi, today, at the age of 57. Ladanyi sustained severe head trauma following an onstage accident last Friday in the Greek Republic of Cyprus. Ladanyi was immediately rushed to a local hospital where he remained in critical condition over the weekend. He was in Cyprus touring with Maple Jam Music artist, Anna Vissi.

Ladanyi, a Grammy Award-winning producer, has spent his entire professional career engineering, mixing and producing for the greatest artists in the entertainment industry. Ladanyi was widely known for his production and engineering work with musical greats Jackson Browne (six albums, including Running on Empty, Holding Out and Lawyers in Love), Toto (four albums, including Toto IV), Don Henley (three albums, including Building the Perfect Beast), Fleetwood Mac (Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits and Behind the Mask), The Church (Starfish), Jeff Healey (See the Light), and Jaguares (Bajo el Azul de Tu Misterio). His most recent work was with Anna Vissi and her Greek album, Apagorevmeno.

With 40 years in the entertainment industry, Ladanyi has contributed to various high-end projects, with his work leading to 16 Grammy nominations, being directly nominated three times. He won a Grammy Award in 1982 for Best Engineered Recording—Non-Classical with Toto’s Toto IV and nominated for Producer of the Year for Don Henley’s The Boys Of Summer and for Best Rock Album for Jaguares' Bajo el Azul de Tu Misterio at the first annual Latin Grammy Awards.

As president of Maple Jam Music Group, Ladanyi evolved the company from the original Maple Jam Records label founded in 2004 to a full service entertainment entity that works hand-in-hand with the artist to fully develop their careers. As a home to many established and up-and-coming artists, Maple Jam Music Group will continue to move forward, keeping Greg Ladanyi’s legacy alive.

Plans for a private memorial service are pending.
