From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Matt Aitken is a British songwriter best known as being one third of the 1980's songwriting/production trio Stock Aitken Waterman.

He began his career as both a DJ and musician and had been a member of 5 different bands before teaming up with Mike Stock to write and produce music for other artists. They both later teamed up with Pete Waterman and they went from small independent labels to the major RCA, producing Rick Astley, prior to this they had also produced hits for Bananarama.

After the partnership split up in the early-1990s, Aitken went into a period retirement, rasing a family and enjoying another of his pastimes, motor racing. However, he has since returned to the music business.
