Scott Adam Jacoby (born October 31, 1971) is an American record producer, songwriter, composer, sound engineer, and recording artist.[1][2] He is a Grammy award winner, and has worked with numerous artists in various genres including Coldplay, Cory Henry, Fabolous, Jackie Evancho, John Legend, José James, Kane, Laura Izibor, Maiysha, Naturally 7, Ronnie Spector, Sia, Stormzy, Vampire Weekend and Vanessa Hudgens.[3][4][5] In 2007, he founded his own record label Eusonia Records, and is also the owner of Eusonia Studios.

Career[edit]

In 2003, Jacoby signed a record deal with Irma Records to released his debut studio album, Before Now (in 2004).[6] The album was then licensed to Columbia Music Entertainment in Japan, and the first single, "I Like You", went to number 1 on the Japanese radio charts. In 2008, Columbia released Jacoby's sophomore studio album, After, which featured guest artists and writers, Maiysha, Andrew Wyatt, Jerome Collins of Straight No Chaser, Kevin Michael, and Shelly Peiken.[7] In 2002, he established his own music production company, SCOJAC Music Productions, of which he is the current president and CEO.[8][9]

Eusonia Records[edit]

In 2007, Jacoby founded Eusonia Records, an independent record label, originally distributed by Ryko[2] and now by RED.[10] The label currently has four artists on its roster: Jacoby, Maiysha, SiLyA and Zach Deputy,[11][12][13] as well as the soundtrack for the 2013 film My Last Day Without You.[14] In 2010, Jacoby teamed up with his partner James McKinney to run the label.[15]
