About

From Wikipedia:

Paul Richard Epworth (b. 25 July 1974) is an English record producer, musician, and songwriter. His work with artists include Adele, Florence and the Machine, Rihanna and Maxïmo Park amongst many others. He is a member of the Music Producers Guild and is the founder and owner of the independent record label, Wolf Tone (label), having released music from Glass Animals, Rosie Lowe, The Horrors and Plaitum. He has won ‘Producer of the Year’ at the BRIT Awards three times, the most recent in 2015.

He has won five Grammy Awards, as well as the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Skyfall”.

Paul Epworth was one of the four producers who worked on Paul McCartney’s 2013 album, “NEW” (along with Mark RonsonEthan Johns and Giles Martin). He co-wrote four songs on the album.

The tracks that are Paul’s on the album weren’t written. I didn’t bring them in, which is my normal method. [He] works completely differently. We went into the studio the first day I ever met him and he outlined [his] idea and said ‘let’s just make it up’. I just started knocking something out on the piano, he started drumming to it, and I stuck a bit of bass on it and we had the basis of the song worked out.

From Evening Standard, February 1, 2013:

In fact, right now, the 38-year-old from Bishop’s Stortford is probably the most successful producer/writer in the world, a trusted collaborator with a staggering array of international talent, from Adele to Azealia Banks to Sam Mendes to Quentin Tarantino to Cee Lo Green to Paul McCartney. […]

His enthusiasm for his collaborations is uncontainable, even as he’s alert to producer/client confidentiality. He spins round to his huge mixing desk and lets me hear an unreleased composition he’s written with a soul legend that has been rejected by a major hip- hop producer. And then he plays me, at ear-zinging volume, one of the songs he’s written and recorded with Paul McCartney for his next album. It’s called ‘Struggle’, and sounds like Macca’s greatest non-Beatles song. But that’s not too hard. ‘It could be a defining statement for him,’ Epworth says of their four-song collaboration, ‘especially [considering] where he is in his career…’ […]
