Cassidy, an accomplished percussionist and engineer, accepted awards in the categories of Best Album of the Year and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical), along with the rest of Beck’s team. In the Album of the Year category, Morning Phase was up against Beyoncé's self-titled album, Ed Sheeran's X, Sam Smith's In the Lonely Hour and Pharrell Williams's G I R L.
“All of the of the nominees for Album of the Year are winners,” Cassidy said. “The awards, that the record received, were well deserved by everyone who contributed to the record,” Cassidy said. “Everyone who worked on the record is grateful to Beck for his unwavering vision, and we’re honored to have been a part of this experience.”

He is a graduate of the Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music and holds an associate degree in Business Administration. Before being hired by Beck, Cassidy worked at the award-winning Juniper Post Studios.

He says he is honored to have had the opportunity to help produce Morning Phase along with the rest of Beck’s team.
