Tom Coyne was a universally respected mastering engineer and was considered one of the most influential and trusted ears in music. His expertise brought an important finishing touch to the works of many icons such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, the Weeknd, and many others throughout his career. His mastering contributions earned him a total of 18 GRAMMY®  Award nominations, six GRAMMY Awards® — including back to back Album Of The Year wins for Taylor Swift's 1989 and Adele's 25 — and a Latin GRAMMY Award for Marc Anthony’s Record Of The Year-winning “Vivir Mi Vida.” Our creative community has lost one of its giants. He will be greatly missed.
