Nigel Godrich Biography

Nigel Timothy Godrich (born 28 February 1971) is an English record producer, recording engineer and musician.

Godrich first worked with Radiohead when Leckie hired him to engineer two songs for their 1994 EP My Iron Lung. The band nicknamed him “Nihilist”, approving of his efforts to take their sound in new directions. He went on to engineer Radiohead’s second album The Bends (1995), working under Leckie as producer. When Leckie left the studio to attend a social engagement, Radiohead and Godrich stayed to record B-sides; one of the songs intended for a B-side, “Black Star”, was instead included on the album.

Following his success with OK Computer, Godrich mixed most of Natalie Imbruglia’s hit album Left of the Middle (1997) and R.E.M.’s Up (1998). Godrich has collaborated with American singer-songwriter Beck several times, on Mutations (1998), Sea Change (2002) and The Information (2006). The first two of these albums, particularly Sea Change, were noted for their atmospheric folk/pop sound, a major departure from the sample-heavy, spontaneous style Beck was known for. Godrich has also worked with Travis three times, producing their commercial breakthrough The Man Who (1999) and its followup The Invisible Band (2001), and co-producing The Boy With No Name (2007) with Brian Eno and Mike Hedges.

Radiohead invited Godrich to produce their third album, OK Computer (1997). Working in improvised studios without supervision, he and the band learned as they went, and credited the open process with the record’s success. In 2013, Godrich told the Guardian: “OK Computer was such a big thing for me because I was given power for the first time. Some of these incredibly intelligent and insightful people said ‘do what you want’ to me so I worked my arse off for them and together we did something that represents where we all were at the time. And it stuck for some reason. People got it, so that changed my life.”

In 2002, Godrich was hired to produce the second album by the Strokes, but was fired when their work, according to the band, proved “soulless”. Godrich said of the failed collaboration: “The problem there was that me and [singer Julian Casablancas] are just too similar, we’re both control freaks. He wanted to do it his way, I wanted to do it my way, and obviously that’s the point of me being there. And I’m saying ‘Well, why am I here if you’re not prepared to try and do it the way I want to do it?’ We got on great, it was just one of those laughable things where it just doesn’t work. I wanted them to change, and they didn’t.”

He produced the 20th anniversary version of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, released in December 2004, which also featured Yorke and Greenwood. Paul McCartney hired Godrich to produce his album Chaos and Creation in the Backyard (2005) after being recommended by Beatles producer George Martin. Godrich fired McCartney’s touring band, and demanded that McCartney abandon songs Godrich found clichéd, over-sentimental, or subpar. The album was nominated for several Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and Godrich was nominated for Producer of the Year.

In September 2006, it was announced that Godrich, along with producer Dilly Gent, producer James Chads and John Woollcombe, were shooting the music series From the Basement, filmed from London’s Maida Vale Studios. The series was to focus on intimate, live performances by musicians without a host or an audience. Godrich told Pitchfork Media in an interview, “We’ve got a lot of people that I’d like to see on the show [that] we’re talking to. [But] I don’t want to mention their names. Obviously, I’m really interested to capture some really iconic, bigger names– really the whole point is to get people who are having their moment, to try and get a definitive record of what they’re doing.”

Godrich has produced most of Radiohead singer Thom Yorke’s solo work, including his albums The Eraser (2006), Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes (2014) and Anima (2019). Yorke credits Godrich with helping edit his work, identifying which parts need improvement and which have potential. He gave the example of “Black Swan”, a song from The Eraser, which originally was “a six-minute load of crap, except for this one juicy bit, and [Godrich] goes past and goes, ‘That bit. Fuck the rest.’ Usually it’s something like that.”
