Jake Sinclair (born March 7, 1985) is an American musician and producer who has worked with Weezer on multiple occasions.

Overview

Sinclair first worked with Weezer as a recording engineer under Sinclair's mentor, producer Butch Walker, during the production of Raditude. A self proclaimed fan of the band, he once was in a Weezer cover band called WannaBeezer.[1]

Sinclair produced The White Album as well as the single "I Love the USA" and the Weezer Fan Club-exclusive "The Last Days of Summer". Leading up to The White Album, Sinclair posted on the allthingsweezer.com forums under the name "wannabeezer" and shared tidbits and insight from the new album. Though not credited, Rivers Cuomo later stated, following the release of Pacific Daydream, that Sinclair was "instrumental" in making the song "Mexican Fender" what it was.

In 2019, Sinclair produced Weezer's cover of the song "Lost in the Woods" for the soundtrack to the film Frozen II. Sinclair also produced the piano version of the band's 2020 single, "Hero," as well as the band's 2021, album, OK Human. He has since been referred to by Rivers Cuomo as the "big-picture" co-producer of the band's forthcoming 2022 project, SZNZ.[2][3]

Sinclair has produced several albums with engineer Suzy Shinn, who would later produce Weezer's 2021 album Van Weezer.
