The Team

Jonnie Knights


I'm Jonnie and, for introductions sake, I'm an award winning director, producer and editor and I do writing and music shit on the side. I'm currently studying at the university of Sunderland and am the current TV and Film coordinator for Northern Lights (the universities review magazine) and I have occasional roles on Spark FM (the universities radio). I'm a music fanatic and I quite happily sit in the hipster camp with the phrase "you probably haven't heard of them" being spoke by myself quite often when asked my personal music taste (a phrase a I feel is said justifiably in my case). My music tastes could be described as odd with chunks of my time differing between Rap, EDM, Rock, Glitch and Folk with my preferred artists being Tyler the Creator, Flume, Chet Faker and The Glitch Mob along with the likes of The Brass Action having also stuck with me for the long run. Due to rather diverse music tastes I want spotlight to reach to all kinds of artists all over the north east and beyond to bring anyone who checks us out, a great range and mix of sound.
