Jack Kugell

Jack Kugell is one of EMI’s most versatile songwriter/ producers: his work spans the Pop, R&B and Country arenas - to name a few. His recent projects include writing and producing for artists such as THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS (Interscope/Universal), ANASTACIA (Mercury), WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE SOUNDTRACK (Disney), WAYNE BRADY (Concord/Universal), SHONTELLE (SRC/Universal), MICHELLE WILLIAMS (Sony), SEAN KINGSTON (Sony), ALL4 ONE (Concord/Universal), and THE CAB (Fueled By Ramen).

Jack is perhaps most recognized for his #1 chart-topper "Valentine" recorded by Martina McBride, co-written with Jim Brickman. "Valentine" became a #1 AC hit and earned multi-platinum status for both Martina McBride and Jim Brickman's albums.

In 2008, as one-third of the production team THE HEAVYWEIGHTS, Jack co-wrote & produced Wayne Brady’s critically acclaimed debut album “A LONG TIME COMING”, which resulted in a Grammy nomination for Brady’s vocal performance on the Sam Cooke classic “A Change Is Gonna Come”.

Jack’s work has sold a combined total of 18 million units, and counting. He has worked with artists from all over the world, reaching the top five in many different countries.

Kugell's first success as a songwriter came after he penned "Hey Santa" for The Wilsons and the theme song for "The Carnie Wilson Show."

Jack was signed to EMI Music Publishing in 1993 but as the son of producer Marty Kugell, his first musical experiences took place as he watched his dad write and record in the studio. By age eleven, Jack knew that he wanted to be a songwriter, and what started as a hobby soon became a full time career.

Other endeavors involving Kugell include writing and producing Shontelle’s "Battle Cry", which received the historic honor of being used as an official theme song for the Obama campaign, as well as being included on the official Obama Campaign CD.

Jack is currently developing talent, having just signed his first artist to Sony music, and continues to consistently write great songs.
