John Schroeder was the producer and co-producer for no less than one hundred and seventy artists throughout his career, including Cliff Richard, The Shadows, Helen Shapiro and Status Quo. Virtually no field of popular music was untouched by his hand - from the orchestral jazz based stylings of Sounds Orchestral through to the pop-soul of Geno Washington. John was also initially responsible for bringing the Tamla Motown label to the UK. He later formed his own label, Alaska, signing a band named Cymande who are still the first British black band to conquer America. John has just completed their fourth album.
