Three-time Grammy Nominee and legendary recording engineer Young Guru teams with GrammyU to embark on the 13-city Era Of The Engineer tour - a string of academic speaking engagements that will take him to college campuses across the United States. Beginning in Philadelphia on April 8th, Young Guru will kick things off with a lecture at Drexel University. A member of the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing Advisory Council and alum of Howard University, Young Guru is no stranger to academia or the diligence that major success requires - having worked at the helm for almost all of the recordings in Jay-Z's catalog. The tour will focus on the music business, recording and engineering. Don't fret. If you cannot make it out to see Young Guru in person, the Atlanta dates will be streaming live.
