Homer Steinweiss

Homer has provided the indelible backbeat of Daptone Records since day one and, since honing his craft writing songs for Sharon Jones, has developed his own bright career as a producer and writer, most recently producing and co-writing the majority of Diane Birch’s Speak A Little Louder (S-Curve, 2013), co-writing on Mark Ronson’s Uptown Special (2015), and writing for the Dan Auerbach fronted band The Arcs’ Yours, Dreamily (2015), for which Homer also plays drums. Homer’s creative contributions as a principal Extraordinaire have also proved fruitful in the sample world, having been used by Travis Scott on his summer hit, “Antidote”, as well as by Jay-Z (“Rock Boyz”, “Open Letter”), Eminem (“Groundhog Day”), and the Black Eyed Peas (“Imma Be”). Homer wants to continue writing with pop and indie artists, both established and developing acts. He is open to any and all possibilities. He is a skilled engineer and producer and proficient in the analog world as well as Pro Tools.
