Ben Sherman is a brand fortunate enough to consider many of the world’s finest musicians as both fans and friends, in VIP we’ve asked each of them to donate one plectrum to be auctioned for charity. Launching with gigs in London, Berlin and New York, the global auctions begin on May 29th with 100% of the proceeds going to support the great work of our charitable partners.  Dave Stewart has donated a plectrum he used in March in a song writing session with Mick Jagger for the forthcoming Super Heavy project.

With a career that spans over twenty-five years and in excess of 100 million records sold to date, Dave Stewart is recognized as one of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry today. Beyond his work with Annie Lennox in their multiplatinum selling Eurythmics, Stewart’s celebrated production and songwriting for the likes of Bono, Bryan Ferry, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Katy Perry, Joss Stone and Sinead O’Connor, have earned him armfuls of BRITs and Grammys. With only one of the two plectrums donated by Stewart being auctioned here, this pick is a unique collector’s piece. It was used writing a song with Mick Jagger.
