Greg Kurstin won Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical at the 60th GRAMMY Awards.
This marks Kurstin's fifth GRAMMY and second consecutive win in the Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical category, following his win at the 59th GRAMMY Awards. He's the first producer to win two years in a row in this category since Babyface won three years running from 1995-1997.
"It’s double the thrill," said Kurstin backstage. "I feel so fortunate that I get to work with artists I really truly love."
Some of the projects Kurstin has recently helmed include Foo Fighters' Concrete And Gold and Beck's Dear Life and singles such as Kendrick Lamar featuring Zacari's "LOVE." and Zayn featuring Sia's "Dusk Till Dawn." His resumé also includes work with Ellie Goulding, Pink, Tegan And Sara, and Katy Perry.
