Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
Cassidy Turbin, the multitalented Los Angeles-based percussionist and engineer, has received two nominations for the 57th annual Grammy Awards for his engineering on Beck’s latest album, Morning Phase. Cassidy, along with the rest of Beck’s team, was nominated for the categories of Best Album of the Year and Best Engineered Album.
Regarding his nomination, Cassidy says, “We put in a lot of hours and hard work, and it’s a great feeling to be acknowledged for this.” On his website, http://www.CassidyTurbin.com, he shares, “I’m so psyched to have been a part of this. A big congrats and huge thank you to Beck and a big thanks to all of the musicians who played and gave this album its true sound.”
Cassidy calls himself a “jack-of-many-musical trades.” At his core, he is a passionate percussionist with a particular knack for creating drum loops and drum tracks. He calls drumming a “full-body experience.” At the age of 15, he attended The Collective(R) School of Music in New York City. He is also a graduate of the Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music (Los Angeles) and holds an associate degree in Business Administration, as well as worked at award-winning Juniper Post Studios before being hired by Beck. According to Cassidy, his greatest influences are other cultures: “There’s always so much to learn from other cultures. They fascinate and inspire me both musically and personally.”
In 2009 Cassidy was introduced to artist and producer Beck. He soon formed a tight relationship working with him, wearing many hats in each of his projects: audio-engineering, programming for video game music, preparing sheet music for recording sessions as well as setting up Beck’s personal studios. Cassidy considers these years to be a period of vast influence on him in terms of shaping both his taste and skills. He is also honored to have had the opportunity to help produce Morning Phase along with the rest of Beck’s team.
At just 28 years old, Cassidy has already contributed as an engineer to dozens of notable albums and songs, including the White Stripes’ Hardest Button to Button (Beck Remix), Charlotte Gainsbourg’s Stage Whisper (2012) and Terrible Angles EP (2011), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack, The Haunted Man by Bat for Lashes (2012), and Dwight Yackum’s 21st Century Hits: Best of 2000-2012 (2013) and Three Pears (2012).
