Co-founder of music company the SPZ Group, Jill Sinclair, has died from cancer, aged 61.

In a statement, her husband Trevor Horn said: “Jill was an inspiration in every aspect of her life, as my wife and as the mother of our children. She had an adventurous, maverick spirit and built up music businesses – and made her way through life – successfully and independently, and always on her own terms. She will be sorely missed”.

Sinclair co-founded SPZ Group with legendary producer Horn in 1984, overseeing its growth from operating Basing Street Studios and the publishing company Perfect Song, to encompassing a number of music firms, including Stiff Records and Sarm Studios. She was severely injured in a tragic shooting accident in 2006 that left her in a coma for several years.

A funeral was held on Monday.
