From humble beginnings as an engineer at Liverpool’s Amazon Studios, Gil Norton soon emerged as a world-class record producer. His early work with PIXIES (Doolittle, Bossa Nova and Trompe Le Monde) and their label mates THROWING MUSES and BELLY has proven to be highly influential. 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, and 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 also saw Gil produce two stellar albums for TWIN ATLANTIC and MALLORY KNOX and a single for DON BROCO, and last year STORNOWAY released the beautiful Bonxie, which Gil produced, and was met with great praise upon release.
This year has seen Gil return to his rock roots, producing and mixing THE VIRGINMARYS new album Divides, and producing and mixing forthcoming tracks for JOANOVARC, including the Planet Rock radio favourites Live Rock N’ Roll and White Trash. He has recently returned from the studio with BAND OF SKULLS, for whom he has produced and mixed the excellent new album By Default.
