British songwriter/pianist/arranger/producer Tony Hatch wrote Garry Mills 1960 UK and US hit Look For A Star then went on to write and produce for numerous hit artistes on both sides of the Atlantic including Bobby Rydell (Forget Him) and The Searchers (Sugar And Spice).
Most significant was his songwriter/arranger/producer relationship with Petula Clark which yielded such classic British Invasion pop hits as Downtown, I Know A Place and My Love. Chris Montez had huge success with Tonys Call Me which launched the song as an album must with covers by Frank Sinatra, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, George Shearing, Astrud Gilberto and Eliane Elias.
He wrote more songs with his then wife singer Jackie Trent which included her #1 UK hit Where Are You Now plus Dont Sleep In The Subway, I Couldnt Live Without Your Love, Colour My World and Sign Of The Times (all for Petula Clark) and Joanna for Scott Walker.
He also excelled in composing TV themes, most notably for the Australian soap Neighbours and the UK soap favourite Emmerdale now in its 40th year!
