Greg Kurstin is a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who has had his hand in many hits over the last decade, including Adele’s “Hello” and “Water Under The Bridge”, Kelly Clarkson’s “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)”, Kendrick Lamar’s “LOVE” and Sia’s “Chandelier” & “Cheap Thrills.”
In Greg’s early years he became obsessed with artists like John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Charles Mingus, even seeking out Mingus’ pianist Jaki Byard and moving to New York to study with Byard at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Kurstin said that his education in jazz had played a vital role in his current success. “It’s still something I carry over into my pop music work. It’s really important to me that the notes I’m choosing strike the right emotional chord.”
Greg received his second Producer Of The Year (Non-Classical) Grammy award in 2018. Greg also won “Song Of The Year,” Record Of The Year,” and “Album Of The Year” Grammys for his work with Adele, and "Best Alternative Album" and "Best Engineered Album (non-classical)" for Beck's "Colors." Greg received a CMA in 2019 for his work with Maren Morris on her album GIRL, which won Album Of The Year.
