Jeff Barry is an American singer, songwriter, and producer. He began his association with the Monkees producing and arranging their second A-side, "I'm a Believer", and half the songs on their second album, More of the Monkees. He produced the band's third single, "A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You" and its withdrawn B-side, "She Hangs Out", which he also co-wrote with his wife Ellie Greenwich. ("She Hangs Out" was later re-recorded by the Monkees in a Chip Douglas-produced version for their fourth album.) His initial association with the Monkees came to a sudden halt when the Monkees' music supervisor Don Kirshner was fired and the Monkees selected Douglas to produce their next record. Barry followed Kirshner to his next project, The Archies, for whom he co-wrote and produced their hit single "Sugar, Sugar".
