About Nimbus: The Legacy
The Nimbus legacy began in the late 60s with music legend Jack Richardson C.M. A pioneer and mentor, Jack produced over 240 albums, 27 Billboard charted singles and over 20 Billboard charted albums. He has received 38 gold and platinum awards.
Jack in turn mentored Bob Ezrin and Jack’s son GGGarth, both of whom went on to successful careers as producers.
In 2009, Bob and GGGarth partnered with Kevin Williams to co-found Nimbus. Their mandate is to teach the next generation of content creators in the same way that they were taught, by passing along the traditions of excellence in audio engineering and music production pioneered by Jack.
