One Direction Producer Julian Bunetta Talks Working With Solo Niall, Harry & Louis
It stands to reason that the 34-year-old Bunetta and the teenage Hey Violet immediately hit it off considering that Bunetta spent the majority of his career helping foster another young band’s creative growth. “About six years ago, (current Syco music head) Tyler Brown was an A&R and he said, ‘Hey, do you want to try working with One Direction on their second album?’” (2012’s Take Me Home). “It sounded interesting to me, so he put me in touch with Jamie Scott and him, me and John Ryan wrote two songs. The label liked them, the band liked them, and we flew to London to record them.” From there, Bunetta helped bring One Direction’s bubblegum pop vibes into more refined, adult contemporary territory. Becoming their go-to producer starting with 2013’s Midnight Memories, Bunetta helped mastermind a majority of the group’s tracks, forging a strong creative relationship and a deep bond with the group of teens-turned-international superstars.

Last year’s X Factor champion Matt Terry has finished recording his debut album.
While 2015 winner Louisa Johnson’s record still hasn’t seen the light of day, Matt’s told me his is practically done and dusted.
The former waiter said: “The album is 95 per cent done. We’ve pencilled 12 tracks for the album and I’ve written eight of those myself so happy days.
“We are just looking to add a couple of collaborations possibly. But the first single is chosen and it’s confirmed I’ll be performing it for the first time on The X Factor live shows.”
Matt is currently riding high in the charts with Sean Paul and Enrique Iglesias on track Subeme La Radio.
He added: “I wanted to sing Enrique’s Hero at Judges Houses half in English and half in Spanish but I was banned by Simon Cowell who didn’t like the idea.
“So it’s weird how I’m now singing Spanish on an Enrique track a year later.
“I used to sing Enrique songs non-stop when I was about 14. He’s one of my idols.”
Subeme La Radio is out now.

Enrique Iglesias believed Matt Terry was SPANISH as they record new single together
MATT Terry’s accent is so convincing even Enrique Iglesias thought he was Spanish.
The X Factor winner is featured on a new version of Enrique’s smash, Subeme La Radio, alongside Sean Paul.

And Matt’s childhood Spanish lessons obviously paid off.

Enrique told me: “When I heard Matt sing in Spanish it’s crazy.

“You wouldn’t know he was English. He doesn’t have an accent. You can tell when he was singing he has that Spanish in him.”

Enrique knew all about Matt before they worked together – as he’s a secret X Factor fan.

The Hero hitmaker explained: “I knew who he was because of X Factor of course. I watch a lot of those shows.
