Bryon Jones

Bryon Jones is an international recording artist and record producer with over 25 years experience.

With his first #1 being in 1987 and his most recent in 2010 with Stan Walker's double platinum debut single "Black Box" Bryon is now recognised as one of Australia's most experienced and successful producers. With his brother Jonathon and friend Ray Medhust, Bryon founded the influential and successful pop soul group the Rockmelons in 1984.

Pioneering house music, hip hop, R&B and reggae into the Australian charts in the late 80's and early 90's, the Rockmelons had hits with tracks including “New Groove”, “Ain't no Sunshine”, “That Word L.O.V.E” featuring Deni Hines and the international club classic “Loves Gonna Bring You Home” featuring Doug Williams.

The Rockmelons produced numerous hits for other artists throughout the 90's and 00's including "Hook Me Up" for CDB, "Rock Me All Night" for Kaylan and "Time Of Our Lives" for Marcia Hines. The Rockmelons returned to the charts again in 2002 with the Top 40 and Aria Club Chart #1 “All I Want is You” featuring Jeremy Gregory.

Bryon's reputation as a vocal producer led to a request from Will Smith to help out on his U.S single “1000 Kisses”, from his album “Born to Rein” for Sony US. In 2003 Bryon was asked by Ross Fraser at BMG to be producer in charge on Australian Idol.

Bryon produced all Australian Idol winner's singles. "Angel's Brought Me Here" by Guy Sebastian and "What About Me" by Shannon Noll remain highest and third highest selling Australian singles of all time. Bryon also produced Guy's 6 times platinum debut album "Just as I Am" and Shannon's fist 2 albums "That's What I'm Talking About" and "Lift" including the hit's "Shine", "Lift”, “Lonely” and “Now I Run"

Other notable successes from Australian Idol were Anthony Callea's double platinum debut album including the hit "Rain" and Damien Leith's #1 debut single "Night Of My Life".

Bryon's production philosophy is simple. "It's all about the song".
