To date, Jack Splash has been nominated for ten Grammy's and has won three. In 2008 Splash won a Grammy for Best R&B Album for Jennifer Hudson's album Jennifer Hudson. That same year, the Jack Splash-produced song "I'm His Only Woman" (performed by Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia) was nominated for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group. In 2009, Splash was nominated for Best R&B Album for Jazmine Sullivan's Fearless. In 2010, Splash was again nominated for Best R&B Album for Anthony Hamilton's The Point of It All. In 2011, Splash’s production for CeeLo Green, "Fool for You", featuring Melanie Fiona reached #1 on the Billboard charts and won two Grammy Award's for Best R&B song and for Best Traditional R&B Performance. In 2012 Splash received another Grammy nomination for Melanie Fiona's ("Wrong Side of a Love Song") for Best Traditional R&B Performance. In 2013, the Jack Splash-produced song "Now or Never" (written by Kendrick Lamar, Jack Splash and Jazmine Sullivan and performed by Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige) was nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Also in 2013, Splash was nominated for two additional Grammys for Album of the Year and Best Rap Album for Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City. In 2014 Splash took a small hiatus from producing for major label artists to focus on two of his side-projects. The first group he formed with R&B singer Bobby Caldwell is called COOL UNCLE. In 2015 COOL UNCLE released their debut album to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone called the album "2015's Smartest Retro-Soul Revival" and Pitchfork selected the Cool Uncle song "Break Away (featuring Jessie Ware)" as one of the "Best Tracks of 2015". The second side-group Splash formed in 2014 (with Los Angeles hip hop musician Ras Kass) is called Semi Hendrix. The duo released their debut album Breakfast At Banksy's in 2015 on Mello Music Group. The Semi Hendrix album featured guest appearances from CeeLo Green, Kurupt, Teedra Moses, Ras Austin, Taj Austin, Alice Russell (singer), Wrekonize and more. The title track, "Breakfast At Banksy's", features a video directed by Jay Brown & animated by Ruffmercy, and in 2016 the song was used to launch a Samsung Galaxy S7 television campaign. In 2017 Splash resumed producing for other artists and released an album with Atlantic Records artist Lauriana Mae titled "Can't Go Back" (featuring Dreezy, Raekwon from Wu-Tang Clan, Manolo Rose and more). Also in 2017, after seeing them perform on both the David Letterman show and NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, Splash began working with the St. Paul and The Broken Bones from Alabama and produced the entirety of their album (Young Sick Camellia), which was released on September 7, 2018 via Sony Music. The album debuted at #3 on Billboard Magazine's Emerging Artists Chart and #4 on Billboard Magazine's Alternative Albums Chart. The album Young Sick Camellia was also St. Paul & The Broken Bones' first album to make it to the top 10 on Billboard Magazine's Top Rock Albums Chart. The lead single off of the album is called "Apollo" and Rolling Stone called the song "Prince-worthy funk". The song "Apollo" spent 20 weeks in the Top 20 on Billboards Adult Alternative Songs Chart and peaked at #3 on November 3, 2018, which was the bands first Top 5 Billboard radio airplay ranking. St. Paul & The Broken Bones performed several Jack Splash-produced songs on both The Jimmy Kimmel Show as well as Late Night with Seth Meyers. In 2018, again after seeing an NPR Tiny Desk performance, Splash began working with the New Orlean's band Tank and the Bangas. The band won NPR's 2017 Tiny Desk Contest. Splash produced several songs on Tank and the Bangas major label debut (entitled "Green Ballon"), including the lead single "Ants" (as well as "Hot Air Balloons", "Forgetfulness" & album closer "Colors Change"). The Tank and the Bangas Green Balloon album was released on May 3, 2019 via Verve Records/Universal Music Group and debuted at #3 on Billboard Magazine's Heatseakers Albums Chart. On November 20, 2019 (after receiving critical acclaim for their Jack Splash produced album) Tank and the Bangas were nominated for Best New Artist for the 2020 Grammy Awards. Also in 2019, Jack Splash released another independent side project called KILL THE MOTHERBOARD with singer/songwriter Jon Brown from Milwaukee. The duo's first single "Waaaaay Gone" was premiered on Complex (magazine) and their second single "The Water" featuring Eric Biddines was premiered on HipHopDX. Their debut album The Legend Of Picasso Jones was released via Empire Distribution on June 14, 2019. On August 2, 2019 another one of Jack Splash's side projects (Brothers Voodoo) had an unreleased demo of their song "Keep You Alive" featured in the movie and the soundtrack for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. The movie premiered at #1 at the box office and as of September 6, 2019 Hobbs & Shaw has earned over $700 Million worldwide. Brothers Voodoo have not yet announced an official release date for their debut album. In October of 2019 Jack Splash began working with Emmy and Tony Award Winning actress and singer/songwriter Cynthia Erivo on her debut album for Verve Records/Universal Music Group.

Splash is also the frontman of the band PlantLife, which has released three LPs since 2003.
