Since being publicly recognized in 1962 with his first GRAMMY® nomination, for Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons’ “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” Bruce Swedien has built a peerless body of work across eras and genres. Bruce went on to record and mix Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album in the history of recorded music. Bruce has been nominated for a total of thirteen GRAMMY Awards and won five. In 2014 the AES awarded Bruce an AES fellowship award for his “impact in creating a sonic reference in modern popular music” and setup a special scholarship fund for him at http://swedienscholarship.org/.
