Nick Brophy

About Nick Brophy:

Nick Brophy is accomplished at virtually all aspects of creating music. Not only is he adept at writing many different genres of music but also works as one of the leading ProTools based Producers. He has been writer, engineer, producer, mixer and programmer for many different artists.

He is a multi instrumentalist (guitar, keyboards, bass) who melds his skills of "radio friendly tunecrafting" with his solid production expertise. Nick's love of music stems from the Beatles and considers his specialties "melodys, hooks and harmonies".

Nick is an Edison award winner (Holland's eq. to Grammy) for his work with the Riverdogs (Epic). He was bass player and co-founder of this L.A. based rock band. Nick's engineering work has achieved platinum status on Everclear's "Sparkle And Fade" (Capitol) and has garnered a Grammy award for country music's "Tribute To Tradition".

Since being signed to EMI in 1998, he has written with artists all over the world. He wrote EMI artist Trine Rein's single "Stars And Angels", Lionheart artist Jill Johnson's single "Live For Today", Columbia artist Tim James' "In Walks You" and Sony artist Andrew DeSilva's singles "Quiet Battles" and "Everytime I Fall". Nick also wrote and produced 10 songs for Warner artist Mishelle Bradford- Jones who currently has the single "Brave" charting in Australia. International star Coco Lee also recorded "Brave" for her album "You and Me".

In addition, Nick is very active in film and television. He wrote the theme for the T.V. series "Wasteland" (ABC), his song "Life Is What You Make It" appears on the Wedding Planner soundtrack and composed the theme for Eddie Murphy's movie "Pluto Nash" which appeared in the theatrical trailers. Most recently Nick's song "Reality Girl" is in an episode of TV's "Maybe It's Me".

His recent projects include recording new songs with the Rolling Stones for their "40 Licks" album, completing work on the new Hootie & the Blowfish album, and Carly Simon's christmas album.

Nick has recently completed co-producing and mixing the Phil Vassar album "Shaken Not Stirred" and producing and mixing "The Mamasitas".
