Meet Jon Kelly, one of Tileyard’s finest producers. Jon began his career as an engineer at Air Studios in Oxford Circus before going independent and moving to Tileyard Studios in May 2014. His credits include work with some of the most prestigious names in British recording history, including Kate Bush, Paul McCartney, Deacon Blue, Prefab Sprout, Heather Nova, Beautiful South, and Chris Rea. More recently, he has worked with Duffy, Emmi Green and Chris Difford, as well as taking part in several of Tileyard Music’s writing camps.
Jon enjoys the full songwriting process, and favours starting a song from the ground up, beginning with just piano/guitar and vocals to get a great song before working on the production. In his studio you’ll find lots of old gear collected over the years, including a Euphonix console, various valve EQ and compressors, and much more outboard gear.
