He’s one of the most in-demand and hardest-working production minds in music today. His skills as a recording engineer, producer, and mix engineer have been put to use on records by The War on Drugs, Weezer, Lucius, Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius, Kacey Musgraves, John Legend, Kurt Vile, and Vampire Weekend to name just a handful. Along the way, Shawn Everett has garnered a boatload of Billboard Number One Albums, Juno Awards, and Grammys.
