Hi, I’m Jonathan. I’m a pop music producer in London. I work not only as a music producer, but also as a songwriter, mix engineer, composer and musician. I started playing the piano at the age of 6 and was classically trained until the age of 16. In that time, I completed all of the exams set by The Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music.
It was soon after this that I started creating my own music. Playing the piano offers a great understanding of how music is put together; the chord structures used and the arrangements. In my early 20’s, I signed a publishing deal with Peermusic UK, one of the largest independent music publishers in the world. I had several songs cut in Europe and worked with many up and coming artists, a few of whom have gone on to write some number 1 UK hit singles.
I offer both online and physical recording sessions, although the internet has really opened up the world and so the vast majority of my sessions are working with people online. Because of this, I’m able to work with people all over the world. To date, I have produced and co-written songs for clients in the UK, US, Malaysia, Qatar and many countries in mainland Europe.
Production wise, I specialise in commercial pop music and electronic dance music, although I have mixed songs covering many different genres. I work with both professional and aspiring artists, songwriters and producers of all levels, from all over the world.
I’m very geared towards producing commercial pop music and I’m passionate about creating music that competes with the songs we hear on the radio today. In order to achieve this, every aspect of the song has to be strong. I always endeavour to create the best lyrics, melodies, chord structures, production and mix. Only then can a song really compete with contemporary music.
Nothing speaks louder than an amazing product. Focus on that, and you are giving yourself the best chance of success. Jonathan Essex Music | Music Producer In London
