Kevin John Bacon (born 30 March 1959 in Rotherham) is an English musician and record producer best known for his work with fellow Brit Jonathan Quarmby under the moniker Bacon & Quarmby, as well as his tenure as bassist for the band the Comsat Angels. After leaving the Comsat Angels, Kevin Bacon produced for many other artists, notably Finley Quaye, Longpigs and Ziggy Marley.
A native of Alfreton, Derbyshire, Bacon's introduction to the record industry came in 1978 when he helped found the Comsat Angels. The Comsats went on to make eight albums with Bacon for the Polydor, Jive and Island labels before he departed the band in 1989 to focus on record production and artist development in partnership with Quarmby. The duo worked with artists as diverse as Finley Quaye, the Pretenders, David Bowie and Ziggy Marley, who achieved both Grammy and Brit awards. Bacon was also an A&R consultant for Island Records and developed joint venture businesses with Universal Publishing and TVT Records. Bacon and his production partner Quarmby later founded the company AWAL.
