Craigie Dodds  Writer/Producer

Studio Nu Boyana Studios, Battersea

Craigie Dodds is an award winning, multi-platinum selling writer, producer, mixer and beat-maker. He has an extensive profile in the music world, both in the UK and further afield. Born in Newcastle Upon Tyne but growing up in Malawi, he has been heavily influenced by both African and Indie Pop. Recently he's been working on several film scores in his joint venture with Nu Boyana & Millenium Films. Last year saw Dodds writing in America with Finneas O'Connell (Producer & Co-writer for Billie Eilish) as well as developing & producing several new projects with the likes of Maeve, Ok Button and Est-Her.

Known for his idiosyncratic production techniques, Craigie's skills lie in thoughtful, deep and powerful musical soundscapes with great lyrics. He is equally happy Injecting new ideas into established acts or helping to shape new up coming artists. It is difficult to pigeonhole his sound, but the melody; lyrics and the beats are key. Craigie has recently been working on material for Ed Sheeran, Jazmine Flowers, Alewya, Tokio Myers, Clean Bandit, Est-Her, One Eskimo, OK Button, Nitin Sawhney, Yazmin Lacey, Joe Worricker and Respons.

As well as scoring for several films Craigie's songs have also been featured on a number of television shows, films and adverts including Friends, Bridget Jones 'The Edge Of Reason', Mandela Redrawn, award winning documentary Miracle Rising, Shaun The Sheep, Grey's Anantomy, Modigliani, The O.C., Levi Jeans, Rolls Royce, Toyota Prius and Galaxy.

Craigie initially found fame with the African music inspired group Egyptian Nursery, who scored three #1 singles and a #1 album. On winning South African Music Producer of the Year Award for his bands album "New Anthem", he realised he was a studio rat, more producer than performer, retreating in the studio.

Craigie has a new studio set up at Nu Boyana Studios, Battersea.
