Three-time Grammy award winner and multi platinum selling record producer, engineer and mixer Jacquire King began his career in the Washington DC area, and soon after in San Francisco, where he became in demand for his working know-how in both analog and digital recording technologies. King still uses a hybrid approach today, and is currently based out of Blackbird Studios in Nashville. To date, King has worked with artists including Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Buddy Guy, Of Monsters and Men, Dawes, Tom Waits, Punch Brothers, Modest Mouse, Mutemath, and Editors, to name a few.
In 1999 King won his first Grammy for engineering and mixing that year’s Best Contemporary Folk Album, Tom Waits' "Mule Variations" (Anti/Epitaph). The album became one of Norah Jones' personal favorites, and the two would later work together on her 2009 album "The Fall" (Blue Note), which King produced, engineered and mixed. King's second Grammy came in 2003 with Buddy Guys' "Blues Singer" (Silvertone), which won in the Best Traditional Blues Album category and which King engineered.
Despite having worked on multiple A-list projects up until then, King's first major commercial breakthrough came with Kings of Leon's "Only By The Night", which he co-produced, engineered and mixed. The lead hit single "Use Somebody" won King his third Grammy, this time for the prestigious Record of the Year (2010).
More recently, King produced and mixed Dawes' 2013 album "Stories Don't End" (HUB), Punch Brother's "Who's Feeling Young Now?" (Nonesuch), Of Monsters and Men's "My Head Is an Animal" (Republic), Editors' "The Weight of Your Love" (PIAS), James Bay “Title TBA“(Republic), Robert Ellis’ “The Lights From The Chemical Plant”(New West), and Ingrid Michaelson’s “Lights Out” (Mom+Pop).
