Geoff Emerick was a universally respected producer and engineer who brought creative boldness and innovation to countless recordings throughout his legendary career. In the 1960s, Emerick played a pivotal role in shaping the Beatles' signature sound, having lent his expertise to several of the group's groundbreaking albums, including Revolver, Magical Mystery Tour, and "The White Album," among others. His inventive contributions earned him three GRAMMY® Awards in the Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical category for the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road, and Paul McCartney And Wings' Band On The Run. He was also presented with the Technical GRAMMY Award in 2003 for his contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field. The Recording Academy™ is eternally grateful for Emerick's support of our Producers & Engineers Wing® and his time spent serving on the Advisory Council. Our creative community has lost one of its greats. He will be deeply missed but remembered as one of our industry's true visionaries. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and collaborators during this difficult time.
