Jonathan Gilmore 2


Jon has been instrumental in the production, recording and evolution of The 1975’s sound. He co-produced 2 defining songs from .’Notes On A Conditional Form.’. His contribution should not go overlooked – his involvement, working day in, day out with the band throughout the entire production process has been key to the development of the sound and the huge success of these two songs. Not to mention his involvement throughout the entire process for the rest of the album. An album that peaked at number 1 on the UK Album’s chart, and was received to critical acclaim. Jon’s also to credit for some incredible records from No Rome and Rina Sawayama. The last 18 months have been a defining stage in Jon’s career – and it’s about time the wider industry takes note!

.’Apologies that this is very similar to above, but it covers all the main points. Given that I’m quite clearly nominating myself here, I’m going to go with ‘wild optimism’ as the reason I deserve an MPG. Jokes aside I feel like the work I’ve been doing is of a high standard (The 1975 album I co-produced and recorded went to No.1 on the UK album charts, the Rina track went number 1 on a local Japanese/Tokyo radio chart, the No Rome track got great playlist support at Spotify) and it would obviously be really nice to have that recognised.
I’ve applied in a few different categories here, simply because I’m not sure which one I’m most appropriately suited for. I’m particularly proud of the production work on those two 1975 singles – they are both primarily composed of stylised live recordings and I think represent a strain of forward thinking ‘guitar band’ production that showcase my professional strengths..’
