From humble beginnings as an engineer at Liverpool’s Amazon Studios, Gil Norton soon emerged as a world-class record producer, with early work on highly influential bands such as PIXIES (Doolittle, Bossa Nova and Trompe Le Monde) and their label mates THROWING MUSES and BELLY. His subsequent production of artists such as COUNTING CROWS, FEEDER, JAMES, DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, THE DISTILLERS, JIMMY EAT WORLD and FOO FIGHTERS- for whom Gil produced two albums, The Colour & The Shape and the Grammy-winning, multi-million selling record Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace-, has ensured his success has continued over three decades.
In the last five years, Gil has produced a plethora of incredible rock albums, both in the UK and in the US, for artists such as BAYSIDE, TWIN ATLANTIC, FUTURES, PULLED APART BY HORSES and MAXÏMO PARK. Gil followed this up with tracks for YOU ME AT SIX, a critically-acclaimed album for SURFER BLOOD, the debut album Anthems for PURE LOVE as well as producing and mixing the PIXIES EPs and their first album since 1991, Indie Cindy. 2014 saw Gil produce two stellar albums, for TWIN ATLANTIC and MALLORY KNOX, and a single for DON BROCO, and in 2015 the beautiful, revered STORNOWAY album Bonxie.
Gil has since returned to his rock roots, producing and mixing THE VIRGINMARYS' album Divides, tracks for JOANOVARC, and BAND OF SKULLS’ excellent album By Default. Recent productions include albums for INTERGALACTIC LOVERS, MARMOZETS, tracks for newcomers MOSES, TWIN WILD and currently a returning album for BUSTED.
