Smoothside
Barbara Jeffries

moothside was created by Barbara Jeffries, whose career in the recording industry began back in the days when Virgin only sold music.

As Managing Director of the renowned Manor Studios, she oversaw a complete restoration of the studio and the 17th. century Manor House which soon attracted artists from all over the world. Under her direction, one studio quickly grew into a respected group of studios, which included The TownHouse, Manor Mobiles and Olympic. Steered by Barbara, the studios boast a long list of credits from Prince, The Jam, Stevie Wonder to orchestral recordings for major film soundtracks.

In 1987, Barbara began Smoothside with a roster of four producer/engineers whilst still at Virgin, deciding to concentrate solely on artist management following Virgin's takeover by EMI.

Smoothside's roster now includes producers, writers, programmers engineers and arrangers, whose enviable talents over the years have contributed to in excess of 30 platinum albums, several Grammy nominations and numerous No. 1 singles and albums.
