London songwriter and producer Starsmith is no stranger to helping define the careers of pop superstars. His first break came when, at the age of 21 and still at university, he met then unsigned artist Ellie Goulding. Bringing the electronic element to Ellie’s brand of folk, the sound was born, as showcased on eight collaborations on her multi platinum debut album Lights and further collaborations on her sophomore album Halcyon.
2015 saw a continuation in the rise of Starsmith’s career when he co-wrote and produced seven songs on the number 1 debut album for UK artist Jess Glynne, including the number 2 single, Real Love, and the number 1 single Hold My Hand which spent 4 weeks atop the UK Single Charts.
Other artists he’s collaborated with include the likes of Marina & The Diamonds, Clean Bandit, Kwabs & Kylie. He has also released his own music on Island Records and Ministry of Sound and recently started his own label ‘Estate’. Currently, he’s working closely with MØ, Cloves, Charli XCX & Rae Morris among others.
