As a fresh creative force in the evolving music industry, Jonathan Brown prides himself on exceptional work ethic, patience, and efficiency all with a humorous attitude. In 2006, Jonathan established Archwood Music’s writing & recording studio, and production company based out of actress Marilyn Monroe’s former residence in Los Angeles, CA.
 
From its initial launch, Jonathan was contracted to do in-house engineering for The Black Eyed Peas. During this time, the quality and experience gained working alongside Will.I.AM and staff producers & songwriters for various I.AM Music Group projects, proved to be invaluable. In addition to the exposure of countless A-List artists; Jessie Mcartney, Pitbull, Baby Bash, Omarion, Frankie J, etc, Jonathan began building a reputation as a skilled producer by collaborating with Latin artists Ozomatli and Andy Vargas of Santana for Taboo’s solo debut.
 
With an emphasis on both business & creative; Jonathan worked independently with music pioneer, BT on his international DJ re-mixes, film, videogame, and new media projects within Binary Acoustics. Jonathan also had the good fortune to meet & work under Mike Carren, Senior Urban A&R for Atlantic Records lending himself to more professionalism in the industry.  From that, Jonathan built an ongoing relationship with Grammy Awarded Latin percussionist Luis Conte, by doing cutting-edge remixes of his Cuban inspired album “Marimbula”.  Jonathan also produced tracks for independent artists and licensed music for Disney’s, High School Musical 3.
 
In parallel, Jonathan began working closely with Tommy Rotem, A&R for Beluga Heights as a way to help develop artists in-house. From this relationship, Jonathan structured Archwood Music to co-write & co-produce new artists in collaboration with Beluga Heights affiliates.
 
All of this led to where Jonathan is today. After a lot of hard work, one of his tracks landed in the hands of JR Rotem while JR was producing an upcoming artist on Jive Records, Livvi Franc. “Lovey Dovey”, co-written with JR, and James Font Leroy (“No Air” – Jordin Sparks). From this, Jonathan signed a publishing deal with Beluga Heights and Universal Music Publishing / Rondor International, inspired by their passion for quality & excellence, as well as their hands-on approach to artist development.
 
With his extensive background in writing, producing and playing multiple styles of guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and creative sound design, it’s natural that Jonathan continues to be involved in shaping today’s music marketplace. Jonathan’s inspiration for creating and disseminating music to the masses comes from his passion to merge modern technology with vintage sounds, in innovative ways. Jonathan is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music, Music Production and Engineering Program.
