Artist Biography

Fred Again.., aka Fred Gibson, is a London-based producer responsible for numerous chart-tipping pop and rap songs. He was born in 1994 as British Royalty and sang in an a cappella group at his future mentor Brian Eno’s studio in London. Fred impressed Brian with his Logic skills, and Brian took Fred under his wing. By 2014, Fred started working with Brian on the trilogy of albums for Underworld’s Karl Hyde. In the following few years, Fred would co-produce singles for Ellie Goulding, Charli XCX, and Little Mix. In 2018, he became a sought after producer, working with Clean Bandit, Shawn Mendes, and Rita Ora. The next year Fred released his debut solo single “Kyle (I Found You)” which was the first track he created using samples he sourced from his surroundings, in this case from a social media clip of his friend singing. Later that year he worked with Ed Sheeran on No. 6 Collaborations in where Fred co-produced all but two of the tracks. In 2020, Fred finally won Producer of the Year at the Brit Awards after many near hits for awards previously. In the next four years, Fred created a brand for himself where most of his solo music was crafted by sampling sounds from around his life. He has done pop-up shows to massive crowds with Skrillex and Four Tet by his side. Who knows what Bonnaroo will hold?
