  • Biography.

    Dropping out of Architecture school to explore the vibrant Sheffield music scene, Jonathan quickly established himself as a session keyboard player and programmer. His first production was for Paris based Barclay artist Fred De Fred.
    Jonathan then began a production partnership with Kevin Bacon (the other one). From AXIS Studios, their Sheffield base, they developed, wrote and produced an album for Electra signed Ephriam Lewis, who tragically died soon after its release.
    Signing to R&S as MANNA, they put out two seminal electro albums before returning to production, most notably with Brit winning Maverick A Strike (Finley Quaye) and Grammy winning Fallen Is Babylon (Ziggy Marley).
    Despite their profile being at its zenith, a new London studio at RAK, A&R consultants to Island Records, no.1 singles and a long list of high profile clients, Bacon and Quarmby saw more exciting opportunities elsewhere, and with Apple guru Denzyl Feigelson, set up innovative digital distributor AWAL.
    In 2012 AWAL was sold to Kobalt and by 2014 Jonathan was free to return to music creation.

    Still based out of RAK, he now divides his time between writing and producing
