Jon Levine is a Canadian producer, songwriter, and former keyboardist and songwriter for The Philosopher Kings. He has written and produced songs for artists such as Rachel Platten, Nelly Furtado, Andy Grammer, Dua Lipa, Cher Lloyd, T-Boz, K'Naan, Bono, Selena Gomez, Bebe Rexha, Chris Rene, Drake and Anjulie.
Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Levine began playing many instruments at an early age, touring as a drummer with local bands before focusing on piano and songwriting. He studied jazz piano at the University of Toronto, where he met some of the musicians that would make up The Philosopher Kings. The band was quickly signed to Sony Music Canada. Along with playing piano in the band, Levine wrote and co-produced most of the material on their certified gold, self-titled debut album, which landed the band a Juno Award for Best New Artist. The album was also picked up by Columbia Records for release in the United States, where “Charms” became a Top 40 hit. The band’s second album, Famous, Rich and Beautiful, was certified platinum.
Branching out to make a solo record and produce and write with other artists, Levine has produced songs for numerous other artists, including Rachel Platten and her massive smash single, "Fight Song", Nelly Furtado, K'Naan, Selena Gomez, and Anjulie, among others. He now works in Los Angeles.
