Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical Nominees | 2020 GRAMMYs

Check out who are the behind-the-scenes masterminds nominated for one of the most coveted producer GRAMMY awards

GRAMMYs/Nov 20, 2019 - 07:04 pm

No song or record can happen without a sound mastermind. Behind that catchy beat or hook, a producer has worked tirelessly to bring an artist’s sonic vision to life. The 2019 nominees for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical represent the creators who have worked on some of this year’s most distinguished albums and tracks, but have also won the respect of their peers.

Jack Antonoff

Jack Antonoff is no stranger to a GRAMMY nomination, but this year marks the first time he is nominated for the Producer Of The Year, Non-classical award. The New Jersey producer, songwriter and musician has worked with esteemed and rising artists in the music industry. This year he has worked on Taylor Swift’s Lover, Kevin Abstract’s Arizona Baby, his group Red Hearse’s self-titled album and Lana Del Rey’s Norman F***ing Rockwell!

Dan Auerbach

Seven years after winning Producer Of The Year, Non-classical Dan Auerbach, also known as the guitarist and vocalist of GRAMMY-winning band The Black Keys, has earned the nomination once more. Auerbach has helped build the sound behind Yola’s Walk Through Fire, Dee White’s Southern Gentleman, Night Beats’ Myth Of A Man, The Gibson Brother’s Mockingbird and The Black Keys Let’s Rock this year. 

John Hill

First nominated for Producer Of The Year, Non-classical during the 57th GRAMMY Awards John Hill has another shot at the producer award this year. Hill, who has worked from music artists of various genres, this year worked on Khalid’s “Hundred” and “Vertigo” Carly Rae Jepsen’s “No Drug Like Me,” Cage The Elephant’s Social Cues and more.

Finneas

Billie Eilish may be the face behind her sound, but Finneas is the sole producer behind her album debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? The first-time GRAMMY-nominee may not have the vast catalog other nominees do in this category, but his work with his sister, Billie Eilish, has been one of the most acclaimed albums of the year and could take an underdog win.

Ricky Reed

Ricky Reed is the man behind one of the most popular tracks of 2019: Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts.” This won’t be the first time the producer is up for this producer nom; He was first nominated during the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Besides Lizzo’s infectious track, he also worked on her songs “Juice” and “Tempo” featuring Missy Elliott, Maren Morris “Kingdom Of One,” Maggie Rogers’ “Burning,” SZA’s
"Power Is Power" featuring The Weeknd & Travis Scott and more.

The Kardashians and Jenners, Nicki Minaj, and DJ Khaled have also announced they will make donations. Jennifer Lopez and her partner Alex Rodriguez joined in the fundraising efforts, pledging $25,000 each to the Red Cross.

In addition, GRAMMY winner Jack Antonoff is matching donations up to $10,000 for the Montrose Center in Houston, an LGBT community center. Chris Brown will donate $100,000 directly to "the people," and T.I. will donate $25,000 to relief efforts.

After the release of the song and music video -- which was filmed before Hussle's death in March -- DJ Khaled announced all proceeds from "Higher" will go to Hussle's children.

DJ Khaled and co. beat out fellow category nominees Lil Baby & Gunna ("Drip Too Hard"), Lil Nas X ("Panini"), Mustard featuring Roddy Ricch ("Ballin") and Young Thug featuring J. Cole & Travis Scott ("The London"). Hussle earned a second posthumous award at the 62nd GRAMMYs for Best Rap Performance for "Racks In The Middle."
