We are Smitten Fox Productions, a songwriting/production duo from Leeds, UK.

We are also both well trained producers and have extensive experience in studio/live recording, sound design, engineering and mixing. We love what we do and are incredibly devoted to each and every project we take on. In 2018 we both graduated with first class honours from Leeds College of Music.

About Us

Cameron Fox

Cameron

From a young age, I have been singing tunes, watching musicals and generally being an annoying child. After begging my mum and dad to let me have piano lessons, I started playing all this music I had been singing for years. It didn’t take long before I started writing my own music. Although it was a rough start, I’m proud to say that my abilities have come a long way (I hope) in the almost two decades since then. For a long time, I have been writing film music and honing my orchestration skills, but in recent years I have written music in all genres, from classical, to jazz, to electronic. More recently, I have been writing music and songs for musical theatre and generally still being that annoying kid. And I can say that I’ve been enjoying every minute of it.

When I went to Uni, I met Michael in class and distinctly remember not liking him (as it turns out, he had the same thought - how dare he!), however I very quickly realised we worked extremely well together and had a great friendship that has been strong ever since.

I originally disliked my piano lessons at a young age. Couldn’t stand them. Alas, my parents were persistent and devoted their time taking me to and from lessons every week-now for which I am eternally grateful. I eventually began to enjoy playing and branched out to learn other instruments. Into my teens, I performed in local bands which would soon become a key aspect of my life along with acting and involvement in theatre. I had always written melodies and lyrics and as I grew I began recording my ideas to develop them as well as my skills as a producer. Songwriting and music production became a great passion of mine and the moment I decided to study it at university was the moment I knew I wanted to make a career out of it.

Shortly after beginning my time at university, I met Cameron when we were put in the same group for an assignment and I remember not liking him; we still joke about this today because he didn’t like me either. He sat at a piano one day and started playing an old song he had written. I listened for a minute. “That sounds like it could be in a musical” I said before he revealed that he had always wanted to write a musical... to which I replied, “me too” and we’ve not looked back since.



"My experience working on the musical was amazing. Michael and Cameron encouraged me to be imaginative which really appealed to me. Michael really nurtured a performance that I was happy with, with his patient and methodical approach and I was massively impressed with his work ethic and the elements he and Cameron had already produced. Both were really prepared and it felt like an environment where you felt safe as a performer because they always had a plan. Nothing was rushed and they really articulated their ideas in a vivid way to me so I always felt like I knew what they were going for."

- Alan Hall (Westby/Bently/Renny Raffien)

"I love working with Michael and Cameron, and am continuously impressed by their innovative writing styles and incredible attention to detail in production. They work endlessly to bring out the best performance in everyone they collaborate with, and actively encourage an enlightened creative process by breathing life into others' ideas. Michael and Cameron are both exquisitely trained in their field and are two of the most creative writers I know. Bringing their version of Wendy to life was an absolute delight, and I look forward to working with them in the future."

- Berit Dybing (Wendy/Christmas On Ice/Music Magic Mayhem/Winter Fantasy)

"In my opinion, Michael and Cameron are each, equally a credit to their profession. In my experience with them, they were both the epitome of what one looks for in modern Musical Directors and Producers. Working with them I was blown away by their work ethic and, as a producer myself, constantly inspired by their enthusiasm, adaptability and unfailing professionalism. The combined creative and technical skillset of the pair is vast and of the highest degree, allowing them the produce such meticulously great content to the upmost quality."

- Ollie Wild (Peter Pan)

"Voicing Mariona for Peter Pan and friends on ice really has been a joy. It is clear from the moment you start working with Smitten Fox Productions that Michael and Cameron love what they do, and this makes you love it too. A lot of talent, a lot of dedication and a lot of laughter goes in to everything that they create. I am amazed that something as brilliant, professional and authentic as this musical can result from, basically, just having a pretty fun time with great people."

- Lauren Rycroft (Mariona)

"Working with Michael and Cameron was an absolute pleasure. They are focused and committed to writing, recording and mixing their music to a professional standard. From a musicians point of view, I have great confidence in Michael and Cameron, knowing they will capture my sound in the best possible way."

- Joe Dawson (Drummer)

"Working with Smitten Fox Productions to help create Peter Pan on Ice was an incredible experience. I have been amazed by the music created and the standard to which it has been produced. Michael and Cameron have been constantly professional and welcoming when I was recording with them, creating a comfortable environment that allowed me to relax. They created guidance when I needed help with lines and allowed me to play around with the notes to see what we could create and let the songs to suit my voice. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Smitten Fox Productions."

- Ruth Lewis (Tinkerbell)

"I cannot say how much fun the process of creating this show has been. Cameron and Michael have been a pleasure to work with, and they were able to bring a smile to my face even when the work got hard. I am not only in awe of the singers and actors I worked with, I am also proud of the entire company involved in the creation of this show as I have seen it grow from just an idea to what it is today. It is truly incredible. I want to personally thank Smitten Fox Productions for giving me this opportunity."

- Conor Smith (Captain Hook/Ralph Raffien)
