Jamie Campbell is a 47 year old music publisher, ex-sound engineer, property developer and devoted father to his two children, Ellis & Jemima (12 & 10).
His passion for music took him to New York in his early 20’s leading to five years working as a sound engineer at Electric Lady Studios, Jimi Hendrix’s recording studio in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. On his return five years later he continued to work in various recording studios, ending up recording demos for aspiring artists at Rondor Music Publishing, where he later secured a role as A&R Scout, discovering new bands songwriters and artistes. In 2000 he was offered a job as Creative Manager at Universal Music Publishing under UK MD and industry visionary Mike McCormack. In his first year he secured an Ivor Novello award for pitching the first hit for new TV show Popstars, leading on to the now ubiquitous format, including the likes of Pop Idol and X Factor (sorry!). He also signed a number of other acclaimed songwriters and artists.
He left Universal in 2005 just in time for the birth of his son Ellis, shortly after which he started working at Crown Music Management, looking after writers, producers & artists. Since then he has started his own music publishing company, Hunky Dory Music signing the artists Amber Run and Charlene Soraia. Jamie now also co-owns and runs property development company, Joint Ventures (London) Ltd, operating primarily in South London and specialising in residential property developments.
Jamie is a keen sailor, loves long distance walking, regularly goes wall climbing with his children, plays guitar and is keen on the occasional off-road motorcycling trip! He is also a proud advocate and contributor to the family’s endeavours in philanthropy, through the Ellis Campbell Foundation.
