Event Description

Designed to pose the question, “What inspires you?” the Inspired Speakers Series features individuals who are not only passionate, but inspire others along the way. This talk features Bruce Swedien, a legend in the music business. He recorded, mixed and assisted with producing the best-selling album in the world, "Thriller" by Michael Jackson as well as "Off the Wall," "Bad," and "Dangerous." His albums with Quincy Jones include "Back on the Block," "Quincy's Jook Joint," "The Dude" and more. Bruce has won five Grammy Awards and has been nominated for thirteen.

His movie credits include "Night Shift," "The Color Purple," "The Wiz" and "Running Scared "and he is the author of "Make Mine Music," "In the Studio with Michael Jackson" and "The Bruce Swedien Recording Method," Hal Leonard Publishers. The only child of classically-trained musicians, Bruce grew up with "Music First!" and has held that as his credo always.
