Jack White Gets Grammy Production Honor
Posted on 21 October 2016
Before next year’s Grammys, Jack White will be honored by the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing for his “accomplishments and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music.” Past honorees include Neil Young, Rick Rubin, Quincy Jones, and Jimmy Iovine. The 10th iteration of the event will take place on February 8 at the Village Studios in Los Angeles. The Grammys will air on February 12.
In a statement, Neil Portnow (President/CEO of the Recording Academy) said, “For years, we’ve marveled at Jack White’s prodigious musicianship and have revered him as a guitar-playing mastermind, but we think it’s important to recognize his significant contributions ‘behind the glass’ as well.” He added, “There seems to be no limit to Jack’s pioneering creativity and unbridled passion, and it’s those qualities that embody the spirit of all of our Producers & Engineers Wing members.”
