Jack White to Receive Grammy Week Honor

Jack White

Jack White will be honored during Grammy week at The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing celebration Feb. 8, 2017,  at the Village Studios in Los Angeles. The annual event, in its 10th year, will highlight White’s accomplishments and support for the arts.

“For years, we’ve marveled at Jack White’s prodigious musicianship and have revered him as a guitar-playing mastermind, but we think it’s important to recognize his significant contributions ‘behind the glass’ as well,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “There seems to be no limit to Jack’s pioneering creativity and unbridled passion, and it’s those qualities that embody the spirit of all of our Producers & Engineers Wing members. It’s with great pride that we honor such a talent who is committed to working diligently to ensure that the quality and integrity of recorded music are captured and preserved.”

As the Producers & Engineers Wing 2017 honoree, White joins a list of past recipients including Chris Blackwell, T Bone Burnett, Ahmet, Nesuhi Ertegun, Jimmy Iovine, Quincy Jones, Arif Mardin, Rick Rubin, and Neil Young, among others.

Grammy week culminates with the airing of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards live on CBS-TV on February 12th.
