Jony Rockstar  Writer/Producer/Programmer/Beats

Studio Somerset, UK

Jony Rockstar is an extremely talented writer, producer and programmer. Jony is no stranger to hit records, with his great sense of rhythm, distinctive beats and production sensibilities, Jony consistently creates catchy pop melodies with a unique and special edge.

As the main writer and producer with Sugababes, Jony has scored a multitude of hits over the years, including co-writing and producing their seminal single "Overload" (#6) along with huge hits "Stronger" (#7), "Caught in a Moment" (#8), "New Year", "Run For Cover" and "Follow Me Home". In addition to his singles success, Jony scored two #1 albums with the group, "Taller In More Ways" (2x Platinum) and "Change" (Platinum). He also worked on the triple platinum #2 album "Angels With Dirty Faces", top 3 albums "Three" (2x Platinum), and "Overloaded: The Singles Collection" (2x Platinum), plus their quintessential debut "One Touch".

Jony was also lucky enough to work with the late, great Amy Winehouse. He produced one of her breakthrough singles, the incredible "Take The Box", the highest charting single from her classic debut album "Frank". A huge commercial success, "Frank" peaked at #3 and was certified 3x Platinum in the UK alone. Subsequently, Jony produced her stunning rendition of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", which featured on the soundtrack to the box office smash "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason". The soundtrack peaked at #2 on the Compilations Album Chart (#1 on the soundtrack chart) and has since been awarded 2x Platinum status.

A further big success of Jony's was when he was asked to remix the Grammy Award winning U.S. #1 single "No One" by Alicia Keys. "No One" was the most listened-to song on US radio in 2008 and is one of the best-selling singles of all time in America. He later remixed her hit "Like You'll Never See Me Again". Both tracks featured on her "Remixed" album, alongside mixes from Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas and Salaam Remi. Other previous credits include BastilleSophie Ellis-Bextor, Bryn Christopher, Rhianna, Robbie Williams, Dido and Booty Luv.

For five years, Jony was signed to a production deal with Darcus Beese at Island Records. During this time, Jony wrote/produced with the likes of Izzy Bizu (the song "Adam & Eve", the lead single from her debut album "A Moment of Madness", Sony), All Saints (the single "This Is A War" from their top 3 album "Red Flag", London/Universal), Laura Welsh (the single "Ghosts" from the album "Soft Control", Polydor), Bo Saris (the single "Little Bit More" and other tracks from the album "Gold", Decca), alongside writing with BRIT Award winning artists Celeste and Gabrielle.

Jony is currently looking for exciting new projects to sink his teeth into from both writing and production angles.

Jony is based in a resitential studio in Somerset, a stones throw away from the Glastonbury Festival site.
