Tom Coyne helped with Adele's sophomore album 21 as a mastering engineer. His other work includes working with Beyoncé on her third solo album, I Am... Sasha Fierce. When 21 won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, Tom's daughter, Briana, commented on it, saying:

My dad booked it up to stage. He would have won the 100-meter dash. He even got up there before Adele.

Tom added:

I walked a little too quickly and reached the steps of the stage before Adele. I stopped cold and … that was just enough time to see Adele start up the steps. So after another second I walked up and LL Cool J came over and congratulated me.

I [initially] put my cement shoes on and stood just to the left of Adele. If I were lucky enough to win again, I'll go right to the back row and give someone else their chance. The pressure is just too great.
