Jeff Lynne
Jeff Lynne

JEFF LYNNE (Music and Lyrics) formed the Electric Light Orchestra, or E.L.O., in the 1970s. The group gradually developed from cult favorites into one of the '70s leading recording acts, scoring international success with several platinum-selling albums, including A New World Record and Out of the Blue. Lynne’s dual talents as a composer and producer ensured the group’s status but, sensing an artistic sterility, he abandoned his creation in 1986. The artist then assumed an increasingly backroom role, but won praise for his production work with George Harrison (Cloud Nine), Randy Newman (Land of Dreams), and Roy Orbison (Mystery Girl). He has also contributed his distinctive production qualities to much of Tom Petty’s recent output. Lynne’s work with Orbison coincided with his position as ‘Otis Wilbury’ in the Traveling Wilbury’s, an informal ‘supergroup’ completed by Orbison, Harrison, Petty, and Bob Dylan. This particularly prolific period was also marked by his work with Brian Wilson on the ex-Beach Boy’s first long-awaited solo album. In recent years, Lynne has produced the Beatles lost tapes, notably “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love”. He co-produced Paul McCartney’s Flaming Pie in 1997.



John Farrar
John Farrar

JOHN FARRAR (Music and Lyrics) left Australia in 1970 at the invitation of the legendary English group The Shadows, with whom he recorded six albums. During a break, he began recording with Olivia Newton-John. He went on to produce 14 albums for her. After winning a Grammy (Record of the Year) for “I Honestly Love You,” he moved to LA, where he wrote and produced many of her hits: “Have You Never Been Mellow,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You” (Academy Award nomination), “You’re the One That I Want” (Golden Globe nomination), “Don’t Stop Believing,” “A Little More Love,” “Magic,” “Suddenly,” “Sam,” and “Make a Move on Me.” He also produced the mega-hit “Physical.” In 1995, he co-wrote the songs for the Cliff Richard musical Heathcliff. He also co-wrote with Francis Ford Coppola songs for a musical version of the hit '60s movie Gidget, which has been indefinitely postponed.
