John Kurzweg-- best known as the producer (and or mixer) for Multi Platinum rock acts Creed, Puddle of Mudd and Eagle Eye Cherry. In 2001 he also produced a track for multi platinum singer Jewell(Atlantic). JK has also produced and mixed for many other label artists you may or may not have heard of---Social Burn(Electra), No Address(Atlantic), Cinder (Interscope), Double Drive(RoadRunner), LoungeFly(RCA), Mo Leveret(Storyville), House of Dreams(Ichiban), Noel Hartough-Mile(Sony), Tishamingo(MagnaCarta), and many he has probably forgotten to tell us about. Kurzweg's early history--- started piano lessons when he was 7,guitar lessons at 11,and by the time he was 13,he was playing paid gigs in Richmond Va. with musicians a bit older than himself---many bands, gigs, and different instruments later(John played drums in several favorite Tallahassee Fl bands and pick up gigs with Chuck Berry and Percy Sledge),---Kurzweg procured a record deal with Atlantic Records in 1986 and in 1987 released a solo album using his middle name---"John Philip"---the album didnt do as well as hoped,so by 1989 John found himself back in Fl broke, dealess, and playing bars again----however--now he had an 8 track reel to reel,a mixing board,and some mics---so---why not produce some bands on the side?Well,thats what he did---- In 1996 he started work with what seemed then "just another local Tallahassee band," a band called Creed- and as they say--the rest is history. In 2003 John moved to Santa Fe NM where he has a separate recording studio on a beautiful high desert property---the studio has a spacious, live drum room, a great 1979 Gretsch maple kit,some very cool guitars,amps,lots of great mics and plenty of neve's, gml's, api's etc to "make things go boom"...
