Career

It was while Booker was in Nashville recording his second solo album "A Far Cry From Here" that he "fell in love with co-writing" and decided to stay and make a living from professional songwriting. He ended up spending around seven years in the USA where he, according to Booker, "[existed] by writing country music and working in Los Angeles, but more top-lining than actual proper songwriting." During this time his cuts included "Too Far From Texas" for Stevie Nicks' Trouble in Shangri-La album and "What R U Waiting 4", which was recorded by Tiffani Wood and Lindsay Lohan.

Booker collaborated with Duffy, producing and co-writing four songs on her debut album "Rockferry"; including producing and co-writing the international No.1 "Mercy", "Stepping Stone", "Rain on Your Parade" and "Breaking My Own Heart".

In 2009 Booker won the ASCAP Writers Award for Mercy and the 2009 Ivor Novello Award for Most Performed Work.

Booker collaborated with Melissa Etheridge, co-producing three songs on her 2012 album: "4th Street Feeling" and Lisa Marie Presley, co-writing "Forgiving" on her 2012 album "Storm & Grace". He co-wrote and produced "Run Free" on the December 2011 album "Heaven" by Rebecca Ferguson and co-wrote and produced "Rollin'" on Ferguson's 2013 album "Freedom".

Booker recently collaborated with John Newman, co-writing six songs on Newman's 2013 debut album "Tribute", including co-producing and co-writing the international smash debut No.1 single "Love Me Again", for which booker is nominated for the 2014 Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. Booker also co-produced and co-wrote "Losing Sleep" and co-wrote "Out of My Head", "All I Need Is You", "Easy" and "Try"
