Glen Ballard Biography

Six-time Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard is one of popular music’s most accomplished producers and songwriters, whose records have sold more than one hundred and fifty million copies worldwide.

Through his Los Angeles-based company, Augury, Ballard is currently developing a diverse slate of projects in which music plays a central role. His most recent project is the Netflix Original series The Eddy: a music-driven and multicultural drama about a jazz band trying to survive in chaotic modern-day Paris which debuted in May 2020. Ballard wrote and composed original songs and music for the limited series and also served as an executive producer.

Ballard wrote original lyrics and music for GHOST the Musical -- now in its eighth year of world-wide presentation. Ballard is also writing songs for the stage version of the 1979 movie The Rose, to be produced by Gail Berman (The Jackal Group) and Michael Gorfaine and Sam Schwartz in association with Augury. In addition, Augury has a movie musical in development called Queen of Souls, an original story of Marie Laveau the Voudou Queen of New Orleans.

Ballard produced and co-wrote Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill” (33 million worldwide, four Grammys, and named Best Album of the Decade by Billboard Magazine), and a musical called Jagged Little Pill debuted on Broadway in fall (2019) with Diane Paulus directing and a book by Diablo Cody which was nominated for 15 Tony Awards.

He has written and produced songs for Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, Dave Matthews, Shakira, Katy Perry, Idina Menzel, George Benson, George Strait, Wilson Phillips, Van Halen, Chaka Khan, Patti Austin, Al Jarreau, Andrea Bocelli and many others. His production credits include producing and arranging records for Annie Lennox, No Doubt and POD. Ballard co-wrote and arranged “Man in the Mirror” for Michael Jackson, and co-wrote and produced the Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated song “Believe” (Josh Groban) for the feature film The Polar Express.

His work in film includes composing original songs for Charlotte’s Web, Beowulf, A Christmas Carol, The Croods, The Mummy’s Return and Valentine’s Day.
