After a successful DJ career in the late 80s, Cutfather’s production work led to a Grammy Nomination for Best Rap song with Queen Latifah. His remix of Mark Morrison’s “Return of the Mack” was a #1 single in the UK and #2 in the US. He co-wrote and co-produced the song “Superstar” performed by British recording artist Jamelia, which was the most performed song in the United Kingdom in 2003, and the fourth most performed song of the entire decade. “Superstar” earned Cutfather a prestigious Ivor Novello Award for PRS Most Performed Work.
Over the course of his 30-plus year career, Cutfather has collaborated with an extensive list of major talent including Kylie Minogue, Pussycat Dolls, Jordin Sparks, The Wanted, The Saturdays, Santana, Blue, Christina Aguilera, and more. He has written and/or produced 7 #1 singles and over 50 Top 10 singles in the UK, and 4 Top 10 US singles, including Ace of Base’s “Cruel Summer” and All Saints’ “I Know Where It’s At”.
He more recently co-wrote “Up”, performed by Olly Murs and Demi Lovato, which was a Top 5 Platinum-certified hit in the UK and featured on both Murs’ and Lovato’s albums. Cutfather followed this up with the recent Olly Murs hit “Unpredictable” and his co-write on the Matoma Feat Becky Hill hit “False Alarm” now has over 130 million Spotify streams. Other recent cuts include Little Mix “Nothing Else Matters”, Alex Newell “Need Somebody” and Callum Scott “Rhythm Inside”.
