John Fields

John Fields

John Fields is an internationally recognized, multi-platinum writer/producer/mixer who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business - from rock bands like Switchfoot, Jimmy Eat World, Lifehouse, Goo Goo Dolls and Andrew W.K., to chart-dominating pop acts like the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Pink and Backstreet Boys, to dance/electronic artists like Har Mar Superstar, The Presets and Cut Copy.

Recording with John Fields is unlike any other studio experience an artist is likely to have had. John's mastery of engineering allows him and the artist to focus entirely on the creative process without regard to technical concerns. A multi-instrumentalist virtuoso, John will quickly jump behind the drums or piano, or pick up a bass or guitar to lay down a part when needed. These factors, combined with John's confident decisiveness in guiding the process, make for a recording session that's super fast, efficient, and fun.

Fields is also an in-demand co-writer, having penned songs with Dan Wilson, Nick Jonas, Kara DioGuardi, David Cook, James Bourne, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Australian superstar Vanessa Amorosi and others.

Occasionally John will hit the road with an artist, as he's done playing bass with Nick Jonas and the Administration, The Rembrandts and Soul Asylum.

Whether it's playing, writing or recording, for John Fields it's all about the joy in the process of making music.
