Mark Daniel Ronson (born 4 September 1975) is a British music producer, artist and co-founder of Allido Records.
While his debut album Here Comes the Fuzz (featuring collaborations with Sean Paul, Nate Dogg and Ghostface Killah) failed to make an impact on the charts, his second album, Version (with covers of songs by the likes of Radiohead, Maxïmo Park, The Smiths, The Zutons and Kaiser Chiefs) included three top ten hits and won Ronson a BRIT Award for Best Male Artist 2008.
Ronson was born into a wealthy family at the Wellington Hospital, north London, England, the son of writer and socialite Ann Dexter-Jones and one-time band manager and real estate entrepreneur Laurence Ronson. His parents are of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, with ancestors from Russia and Lithuania, and Ronson was brought up in Conservative Judaism. Ronson is related to British Conservative Party politicians Malcolm Rifkind and Leon Brittan, and has younger twin sisters, Charlotte Ronson, a fashion designer, and Samantha Ronson a singer and DJ. After his parents broke up, his mother married Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones, which contributed to a childhood surrounded by music.
