Jamie Ellis is a musician, producer, writer, mixer and sound designer with 12 years’ professional experience in the music industry.
As lead guitar player with his band Battle, Jamie was signed to Warners/Transgressive and EMI Publishing in 2005 and released an album, EP and singles. Battle toured extensively, playing with the likes of New Order, Bloc Party and Mystery Jets. Whilst in the band, Jamie developed his interest in production and the recording process through working with luminaries such as Gareth Jones, Ben Hillier and Dave McCracken.
After the band, Jamie pursued his interest in music production and started producing and mixing. He was enlisted to do some assisting for Paul Epworth, and was witness to the making of albums such as Florence + The Machine’s Lungs and Plan B’s The Defamation of Strickland Banks.
After formalising his knowledge by doing the SSC course at Alchemea College, London, Jamie then branched out and worked with several bands such as The 1975, Chapel Club, The Rifles, Exit Calm and others. Wanting to get outside his comfort zone and develop his skills, including songwriting, Jamie started to work with more diverse artists such as Alex Clare, Jay Johnson and Jordan Mackampa. Most recently, Jamie finished the album 'Gemme' for French megastar Nolwenn Leroy, on which he produced, wrote, mixed and played. The album reached no. 3 in the French album chart.
