Arnold David Lanni (born 4 May 1956) is a Canadian record producer and former member of Frozen Ghost and Sheriff. He wrote Sheriff's most successful song, "When I'm with You."

History[edit]

Lanni was a founding member[citation needed] of Canadian rock band Sheriff in 1979. The band would only release one album (their 1982 self-titled effort, which included "When I'm with You" and another minor hit, "You Remind Me") before breaking up in 1985. Sheriff members Lanni and Wolf Hassel then formed Frozen Ghost, which existed 1985 to 1993. Lanni was a guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist for this project.[1]

In 2000 Lanni was nominated as producer of the year at the Juno Awards.[2]

Lanni has produced Canadian rock groups Finger Eleven, Simple Plan, the first four Our Lady Peace albums (including the diamond-certified Clumsy), Hello Operator, Thousand Foot Krutch, Echo Jet, The Waking Eyes and Rev. He has also produced American groups The Gufs and King's X (Ear Candy).
