Jacquire King (born January 11, 1967) is an American three-time Grammy award winning and multi-platinum selling record producer, engineer and mixer. King has worked with artists including Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, James Bay, Modest Mouse, Buddy Guy, Norah Jones, Of Monsters and Men, Josh Ritter, Cold War Kids, Punch Brothers, Melissa Etheridge, The Airborne Toxic Event, Robert Ellis, and Dawes.[1] He has received nearly 30 Grammy Award nominations for his work.[2]

King had his initial training in recording engineering at Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio. His first studio employment was in the Washington, D.C. area, followed by studio work in San Francisco. He now inhabits Studio G at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN as a personal studio for his productions and mixing.[3]

King utilizes traditional analog techniques and equipment such as tracking to 2" analog tape combined with modern technologies like computer-based recording via Pro Tools and software plug-in digital signal processing that emulate classic outboard Universal Audio and Neve signal processing gear.[4] In 2007 Jacquire disassembled and modified his 40 channel Quad Eight Coronado console, converting it into two identical 16 channel/32 input consoles. In 2014 he hosted his first Mix With The Masters seminar at Studios La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France.
