Wayne Wilkins is a total music professional. South London of origin, he was playing piano by the age of 4, attended the Royal College of Music, and then further studied engineering, mixing and producing at both Townhouse and Olympic Studios, where he worked closely with the legendary engineer Spike Stent. Alongside Stent, Wilkins was able to be around great studio masters like Timbaland and Rodney Jerkins as well as bands like Oasis and No Doubt.
At the turn of the millennium, Wilkins ventured out further on his own, at first with Irish band the Corrs and then helping to develop the artist Natasha Bedingfield. Chart success arrived with their song Single, before then achieving a Number 1 single with the These Words, which was co-written and co-produced by Wilkins. Subsequent hits such as Love Like This helped take Bedingfield into the American market.
Wilkins then wrote T-Shirt for Shontelle, Battlefield for Jordin Sparks, and then the song Sweet Dreams for Beyoncé taken from her Grammy Award winning album I Am…Sasha Fierce. He then achieved further UK Number 1 single success with Cheryl Cole and her platinum selling single Fight For This Love.
