With 16 Grammy Awards to his name, Los Angeles based Thom Russo consistently proves to be a diverse and flexible producer, mixer, and songwriter. After working at the famed Larrabee Sound Studios in the early 90’s, Russo went on to work consistently with Babyface, earning his first Grammys for Eric Clapton’s Change the World. In the early 2000s he found another mentor in Rick Rubin, engineering and mixing Rubin-produced records for Macy Gray, Audioslave, System of a Down, and Jay-Z, amongst others.
Outside of the mainstream US market, Thom boasts extensive Latin credits from Juanes to Mana to Alejandro Sanz. His work has earned him a total of 12 Latin Grammys, the most of any producer in the Awards’ history. He continues to work with powerhouse Latin and mainstream artists alike. More recently he continues to work with Mana, as well as Laura Pausini, mixing singles from Similares (Warner Music Italia); and the acclaimed Danish artist Thomas Buttenschøn, producing the companion album to the documentary Doin' My Drugs, which chronicles his life and career with ALV. Also in 2016, Andrés Cepeda's new album Mil Ciudades, with selected tracks mixed by Thom Russo, was nominated for Latin Grammy's "Album of The Year".
In 2017, Russo received a nomination for GRAMMY's "Best Latin Pop Album" for his mixing work on Laura Pausini's Similares. He also mixed and added production to Huecco's single "Lobbo" (Warner Music Spain); produced, engineered, mixed and co-wrote on Los Hollywood's forthcoming album (Sony Music Latin); and produced, engineered, mixed and co-wrote pop/R&B artist Valeria's debut album Worth It.
