Samantha Ronson And Nicole Richie photosNow one of the biggest DJs in the world, Samantha Ronson has led a privileged life and been surrounded by music since an early age. A friendship with Lindsay Lohan saw her propelled into the public eye more than a decade ago, but just where did Samantha Ronson come from, and what is she up to now?

Born to wealthy and privileged parents, Ann Dexter-Jones and Laurence Ronson, Samantha lived in London until she was six, when her parents divorced and she moved with her mother to New York. They lived there with Mick Jones, her mother’s new boyfriend, who was also the guitarist with the band Foreigner. Related to some of the most influential people in British public life, including Leon Brittan, Samantha was privately schooled in Manhattan and had a childhood surrounded by creativity and importantly, music.

Ronson’s transition into becoming a DJ happened by chance – after graduating from university she received a call from a club she frequented, offering her the chance to get behind the decks. She soon made a name for herself and became an in-demand DJ for high-profile events. Whilst brother Mark Ronson was becoming one of the most sought-after producers in the world, Ronson was making music of her own. Her first album, Chasing the Reds, showcased her songwriting ability. On it, she collaborated with Mark Ronson, Slash, Santigold and several other big names to create a unique first album.

Now working on new music with the band Ocean Park Standoff, Samantha is still very much in demand for DJ work as well as recording and making appearances for various brands.
