The Invisible Men are a Grammy-nominated songwriting and music production trio, consisting of Jason Pebworth, George Astasio and Jon Shave. The trio was ranked as one of Music Week's Top Songwriters in both 2011 and 2012.[1] In 2012, the team co-wrote four of the UK's top-selling singles.[2]

They co-produced and co-composed Iggy Azalea's seven week US #1 single "Fancy" (featuring Charli XCX) (which has sold in excess of 9.1 million copies digitally worldwide to date, making it the seventh best-selling single worldwide of 2014 [3] and one of the best-selling singles of all time) and her US million-selling debut single, "Work", as well as a vast portion of Azalea's debut album The New Classic. They also co-wrote DJ Fresh's UK No. 1 hit "Hot Right Now" (featuring Rita Ora), No. 3 hit "Dibby Dibby Sound" (featuring Ms Dynamite) and Conor Maynard's debut top 5 hits "Can't Say No" and "Vegas Girl". Their catalogue includes Jessie J's hits "Do It Like A Dude", "LaserLight" (feat. David Guetta), "Who's Laughing Now?" and the Noisettes' "Don't Upset The Rhythm" and "Never Forget You". They also supplied the official remix of Coldplay's single "Princess of China" (feat. Rihanna).

Before forming The Invisible Men in 2008, Jason Pebworth and George Astasio were members of Orson, who sold over a million copies of their debut album, reached No. 1 in both the UK singles and album charts, and received the Brit Award for Best Breakthrough Act 2007. As a former member of Xenomania, Jon Shave contributed to a string of top 10 hit singles, including co-writing "The Show" for Girls Aloud.

Forthcoming releases co-written and co-produced by The Invisible Men include tracks with Charles Hamilton.
