Producer Management

Electric Lady Producer Management was founded in late 2015 and has quickly added three distinct and multi-talented clients to its roster: Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, Tobias Jesso Jr.), Paul Butler (The Bees, Devendra Banhart, Michael Kiwanuka), and Christian Langdon (The Pierces, The Skins).  The new division is Electric Lady’s first operation based primarily in Los Angeles, with efforts focused on established and emerging producers, engineers, and songwriters alike.

Chris Coady

PRODUCER | SONGWRITER | MIXER

Heralded by The Guardian as one of the ten “Next Generation of Music Producers”, Chris Coady has been quietly shaping the sounds of artists like Beach House, TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Future Islands for nearly two decades.
As a teenager Coady quickly discovered he would rather record bands than play in them. Leveraging his day job at a music store to acquire an 8-track machine, Coady opened his first studio, The Supreme Imperial out of a warehouse in Baltimore. He spent the next few years frequenting local venues and offering to record his favorite bands – then, in 2001 moved to New York City working first at Quad Studios until meeting producer Dave Sitek. Coady ultimately quit his job to freelance engineer and worked mainly at Sitek’s Brooklyn studio, Staygold. It was there that he would make albums with artists like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear, Blonde Redhead, and Gang Gang Dance. Now based in Los Angeles, Coady has a studio at Sunset Sound and is working on forthcoming releases from Porches, Tops and Slowdive.

Paul Butler

PRODUCER | SONGWRITER | MIXER

Hailing from England’s Isle of Wight, Paul Butler is who NME calls “a maker of some damn fine albums”. A founding member and producer of psych rock band The Bees, Butler and co famously recorded the band’s debut in a garden shed, leading to a record deal with Virgin Records and a Mercury Prize nomination for ‘Sunshine Hit Me’ in 2002.

The Bees quickly gathered acclaim from critics and peers alike, which led Butler to produce Devendra Banhart’s first major label release, ‘What Will We Be.’ He would soon return to the Isle of Wight to produce and record The Bees’ ‘Every Step’s A Yes’ – and, that same year recorded and produced North London artist Michael Kiwanuka’s debut album ‘Home’ (Polydor Records) in his own Steam Room Studios. This led to his second Mercury Prize nomination an even decade after the first.

More recently, Butler picked up a Grammy nomination in 2015 for Jarle Bernhoft’s Islander, which he produced, collaborated with Danger Mouse on Kiwanuka’s Love & Hate, and produced the Stax-inspired LP Sea of Noise from St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Now based in Northern California, Butler is currently recording and mixing the forthcoming record from Caroline Rose.

Christian 'Leggy' Langdon

PRODUCER | SONGWRITER | MIXER

After a hotly tipped demo tape instigated an A&R frenzy, Christian ‘Leggy’ Langdon was launched onto the London music scene, signing his first major record deal before he turned eighteen. A couple major label releases, a sabbatical to New York and one indefinite hiatus later, Langdon found himself back in the business, this time behind the scenes.

Signing on as musical director for folk rock phenoms The Pierces, Langdon went on to produce the band’s cover of David Gray’s ‘Please Forgive Me’, and later, the 2014 top 10 release ‘Creation’ for Polydor UK. Channeling his own experiences as an artist, Langdon now helps artists discover and craft their sound. Having since moved to Los Angeles,Langdon’s recent work includes cuts with Alex Vargas, Jamie N Commons, Ames, and Mr Little Jeans, and mixes for Banks, Diana Gordon, Bondax, Molly Kate Kestner and Charlotte OC.

Jonathan Rado

PRODUCER | SONGWRITER

Best known as one half of the pyschadelic pop duo Foxygen, Jonathan Rado’s musically sensibilities have garnered countless comparisons to the likes of David Bowie and Todd Rundgren. More recently, however, Rado has transported his unique blend of vintage modernism behind the scenes to produce 2016’s critically acclaimed debuts by Whitney and The Lemon Twigs.

While Rado’s affinity for analog recording equipment and vintage tape machines might lazily be described ‘retro’, he is anything but; as NME succinctly described, Rado is “propelled by… the will to trespass beyond tradition”. Rado co-produced and co-write all of Foxygen’s just released Hang, and will see production credits on forthcoming releases by Cutworms, Los Angeles Police Department, and Beach Fossils.

Matthew Otto

PRODUCER | SONGWRITER | MIXER

Launched onto the music scene as half of Canadian art-pop act Majical Cloudz, Montreal based Producer, songwriter and mixer Matthew Otto creates music Pitchfork describes as “aural ambiance [that] humbly glows, soars and contracts underneath”. A classically trained musician, Otto was studying electroacoustic composition when he was introduced to future bandmate and collaborator Devon Welsh. The duo went on to release the critically beloved Impersonator, earning a Juno Award nomination, a spot on the Polaris Music Prize long list, and fans from Big Boi to Lorde.

While the sun has set on Majical Cloudz, Otto’s latest production and writing credits include tracks featured on Solange’s A Seat at the Table, and Moses Sumney’s Lamentations EP. Otto is currently scoring a full-length feature film and collaborating with Toronto based musician Michael Brock for his latest project Mind Bath.
