Bruce Swedien

bruce-swedien-author-photoFive-time Grammy winner Bruce Swedien’s career in music recording began with the music of the post-swing era ans continues through today’s multi-media digital technology. Born of Scandinavian descent in Minneapolis in 1934, Swedien’s father gave him a disc recording machine when he was ten years old. As a child, Swedien would listen to the soulful sounds emanating from a black church in his neighborhood. When he was 14, he got a job at a small basement studio. After high school, Swedien bought a professional tape recorder. He majored in electrical engineering and minored in music while attending the University of Minnesota. When not in school, he recorded jazz groups, choirs, polka bands, and radio commercials. He is the main engineer for Michael Jacksons studio recording for more than two decades. There are a near endless list of artists he has worked with.The highly esteemed engineer has recorded just about every type of music and has worked on numerous movie scores such as Running Scared and The Color Purple. He has won 13 Grammy Awards including those for his engineering of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Bad, and Dangerous albums and for two Quincy Jones albums. Swedien is noted for pioneering the ‘Acusonic Recording Process’ which involves pairing up microphones together on vocals and instruments when making recordings. This achieved an enhanced roomy ambient sound, some of which is evident on albums produced in collaboration with Quincy Jones on tracks such as “Sounds And Stuff Like That!!”, George Benson’s “Give Me the Night”, and the Michael Jackson albums he worked on.
