Starting off making his own music at the age of 13 with some archaic gear in his small bedroom in London, Willie Weeks has come a long way on the journey to becoming a fully authorised producer (by the Official...umm...producer Authorisers..).
Straight after school Willie was picked up by publishers Zebra1 and signed to Bucks Music Group, where he quickly began getting stuck into co-writes with artists and writers from around the world, honing the art and craft of his producing and songwriting.
2013 saw him achieve his first success with a US Billboard number one with songs on double Grammy and ASCAP winning artist Matt Redman’s album ‘Your Grace Finds Me.’ The album topped the chart in UK and US. Willie then went on to score his second and third US Billboard number 1's for an album by Passion called ‘Take It All’, and Matt Redman's next album, 'Unbroken Praise'. The following years have been nothing short of amazing for Willie as he went onto produce and work with some incredible writers / artists, resulting in two UK charting hits (12 & 24) with LZ7 and charting success internationally. Willie has now also had #1 releases in Japan and Korea with major acts BTS, EXO/NCT, and many other great artists in Asia, top 10s in many countries including Holland, New Zealand, Belgium, Germany, and even a #1 in Bulgaria! Other recent UK success has been his involvement in singles for artists Matt Woods, Jake Isaac, Bailey, and Newton Faulkner, achieving numerous top spots in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.
Willie has also been focused on developing his own artist projects, under his own banner. Some talented artists with some incredible records…. Watch this space.
The key has been Willie’s ability to create both quality organic and programmed music across a spectrum of genres, meaning he is exactly placed where every modern producer should be. This musical diversity unquestionably means you will be seeing his credits embedded on many more releases in the future.
