Noel Zancanella is an American songwriter and record producer based in Los Angeles, California. He has written songs for rock and pop artists such as OneRepublic, Maroon 5, B.o.B, Gym Class Heroes, Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat.


Zancanella's father was a jazz musician, and Noel Zancanella grew up playing bass and drums before picking up an MPC drum machine and immersing himself in hip-hop as an artist/producer; in Los Angeles, he took a job at the famous Village Studios and soon found himself working alongside the likes of Janet Jackson and TK. "It was an inspiring time for me. It was the first time I was so deeply exposed to pop," Zancanella said. Eventually, he crossed paths with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder who, at the time, was working with Timbaland. Initially, Zancanella provided beats and tracks, but through his time with Tedder, he expanded his songwriting skills.[citation needed]

Since 2009, Zancanella has been signed to Patriot Games Publishing,[1] a company founded by Ryan Tedder. The signing came through Zancanella co-writing OneRepublic's hit "Good Life", which peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In 2015, Zancanella received the Songwriter of the Year Award at the BMI Pop Awards.[2]

In 2016 he won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year for his work on Taylor Swift's 1989.
