PRODUCER STUDIO ENGINEER MIXER MASTERER
Bill is the world’s most awarded individual Contemporary A Cappella producer, including over 70 appearances on BOCA, over 100 CARA nominations, over 40 albums in the RARB "Picks of the Year" lists, and 13 "DeeBee" awards since 1987 in the Vocal Jazz category from Downbeat Magazine. In 2011, Bill received a personal Grammy Award for his work on Christopher Tin’s “Calling All Dawns”, with the album taking a second Grammy as well.
Bill Hare has been a full-time recording engineer/producer for over 30 years, and has specialized in Contemporary A Cappella production since 1989. In the decades since then, Bill has recorded and/or mixed acclaimed albums for some of the best-known Contemporary A Cappella groups around the globe such as England's King's Singers, Flying Pickets, Swingle Singers and Voces8, Denmark's Basix and Vocal Line, Norway's Apes & Babes, Italy's Cluster, The Ghost Files, and Maybe6ix, as well as working with many top American acts including m-pact, NoTa, Pentatonix, Duwende, The Backbeats, The House Jacks, and many more. Collegiate A Cappella clients include The Beelzebubs, On The Rocks, Divisi, The Harmonics, and about 80 others.
Irrevocably influential to a cappella music through his extensive and impressive work, Hare is a true institution in the genre. Termed the “Dr. Dre of a cappella recording” in Mickey Rapkin’s tell-all tome “Pitch Perfect”, Hare is a force to be reckoned with. Hare has radically revamped the way in which recording a cappella music is done through cutting-edge techniques, a penchant for experimentation and an unparalleled attention to detail.
Bill has also served on the Board of Directors of CASA, and created, with Deke Sharon, “Soup To Nuts,” an annual week-long a cappella recording seminar that helps budding producers develop into studio professionals.
