Who Says Songwriters Aren’t Getting Paid? Here’s Jeff Bhasker’s Multi-Million Dollar Venice Beach Pad
Superstar songwriter/producer — and five time Grammy winner — Jeff Bhasker has just put his Venice Beach pad on the market.
Of course, life for songwriters and producers isn’t easy — at any level, honestly. But it’s nice to know that the superstar tier comes with material wealth, especially for those that play their cards right. Mozart died in a pauper’s grave, but today’s successful musicians have a shot at living — and retiring — quite nicely.
Enter Jeff Bhasker, a five-time Grammy Award winner and creative engine behind Kanye West releases 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and the collaborative Watch the Throne, among others. But Bhasker’s talent goes beyond hip-hop: he’s won Grammys for Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ and fun.’s ‘We Are Young,’ just two of five (he’s also been nominated a total of 13 times since 2009).
Bhasker is also quite the multi-instrumentalist, and also played in Mars’ band during the Grammys. And beyond these splashy hits, Bhasker’s list of songwriter and production credits is enormous.
Which means lots of publishing royalties that Bhasker seems to be collecting on nicely.
Here’s Bhasker’s pad on Venice Beach, a cozy, multi-level industrial loft designed by architect Steven Ehrlich. The $2.15 million, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom condo on Brooks Avenue contains a comfy 7,171 square feet. “The floating staircase leads you to the master bedroom suite, which features a private ocean view balcony, walk-in closet, and spa-like bathroom,” describes realtor Halton Hardee + Partners (email Stormie Leoni at [email protected] if you want to take a look).
