Biography

Jonathan Quarmby Jonathan Quarmby

Studying architecture at Sheffield University, he soon became a part of the city's vibrant music scene, initially as a keyboard player, performing on Yazz's album Wanted and touring with local band, Floy Joy. His transition to record production came with Barclay artists Fred de Fred. Jonathan then collaborated with Axis Studio-based Comsat Angels bass player Kevin Bacon to write and produce Ephraim Lewis's album Skin for Elektra Records.

This partnership (Bacon and Quarmby) went on to produce and write a diverse range of music: electro as R&S artists Manna, Britpop with The Longpigs, rock with Mew, pop with The Sugababes, classical crossover with David Garrett, UK hip hop with Plan B, and were most publicly lauded for their contribution to reggae, with Brit Award-winning Finley Quaye (Maverick a Strike) and Grammy Award-winning Ziggy Marley (Fallen Is Babylon).

Moving from Sheffield to London's RAK Studios in 2003, they continued to produce, but in 2004, set up the online music distribution company AWAL. This grew to be one of the UK's biggest and most innovative aggregators, distributing over 3,000 artists, including The Arctic Monkeys, David Gray, and Madness. It also spawned the metrics platform, Buzzdeck. In 2006 Quarmby was on the judging panel for the music competition Pringles Unsung.

In 2012, they sold AWAL to US publisher Kobalt, and continued to work on the integration of the businesses.

In 2014 Quarmby and Bacon parted ways, with Quarmby leaving Kobalt to return to song writing and record production. Once again based at RAK Studios, he is signed to RAK publishing and has a studio in the building.

Focusing as much on writing as production, he co-wrote and vocal produced four tracks on James Arthur's 2016 No.1 Album 'Back From The Edge' including the title track and the second single; 'Safe Inside' Produced and Mixed Benjamin Clementine's 2015 no.1 (France) Mercury Award winning album 'At Least For Now'. Co wrote and produced Patricia Kaas's 2016 album 'Patricia Kaas' Produced and Mixed Tom Walker's 2016 single 'Just You And I'. Co wrote and Produced Aura Dion's 2016 single 'Love Somebody'. Co wrote 2015's winning song for X Factor France.
