The album received seven Grammy nominations and won in the categories of Best Rock Album and Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. He is currently based in Nashville, TN.[1][2][3]

Hewitt grew up working with his father David Hewitt, a renowned remote recording engineer. During this period he gained experience with broadcast mixing and live recordings with artists such as Jimmy Buffett, Natalie Merchant and Staind. He went on to study at Tufts University in Boston, MA where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. After his studies, Hewitt gained further valuable experience assisting famed audio mixer Michael Brauer at Sony Music Studios, and acclaimed producer and engineer Phil Ramone in New York. However, it was after moving to Los Angeles and working with Rick Rubin where Hewitt made a professional name for himself, gaining engineering credits with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dixie Chicks, Dan Wilson and The Avett Brothers. After establishing a rapport with Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, he went on to mix and engineer eight solo albums for Frusciante.[4][5][6][7]

Hewitt moved from Los Angeles to Nashville in 2015 where he currently resides. Hewitt is based at the House of Blues Studios in Berry Hill, TN, where he mixed The Lumineers' number one album Cleopatra as well as the much-lauded Long Way From Your Heart by the Turnpike Troubadors. He is currently represented exclusively by GPS management.[8][9][10]
