Congratulations to Julia Bullock, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, and Thomas Adès all of whom won GRAMMY Awards at the 66th GRAMMY Awards ceremonies held in Los Angeles today. And congratulations to Laurie Anderson, who received the Recording Academy’s 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award in a ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Julia Bullock won the GRAMMY Award for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album for her debut solo album, Walking in the Dark. On the album, Bullock and London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Christian Reif, perform Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and a song from John Adams’s El Niño. She is joined by Reif, on piano, for a traditional spiritual and songs by Oscar Brown, Jr., Billy Taylor, Sandy Denny, and Connie Converse. Bullock is “one of the singular artists of her generation,” says the New York Times, “a singer of enveloping tone, startlingly mature presence and unusually sophisticated insight into culture, society and history.”

Singer, songwriter, and musician Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway won the GRAMMY Award for Best Bluegrass Album for City of Gold, their second album, following last year's win in the category for their debut album, Crooked Tree. Produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and recorded in Nashville, City of Gold was inspired by Tuttle’s near constant touring with Golden Highway and their growth together as musicians and performers, cohering as a band. These 13 tracks—mostly written by Tuttle and Ketch Secor (Old Crow Medicine Show)—capture the electric energy of the band’s live shows by highlighting each member’s musical strengths. City of Gold also features special guest Dave Matthews on the song “Yosemite.”

The premiere recording of Thomas Adès's Dante, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, has won the GRAMMY Award for Best Orchestral Performance. Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded in concert at Disney Hall for this premiere recording. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.”

Laurie Anderson was named one of the Recording Academy’s 2024 Lifetime Achievement Awards honorees in a Special Merit Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles yesterday. The award was presented to Anderson and her fellow honorees—Gladys Knight, the Clark Sisters, N.W.A., and, posthumously, Donna Summer and Tammy Wynette. Anderson has been nominated for six GRAMMY Awards throughout her recording career and received the GRAMMY for Best Chamber Music / Small Ensemble Performance for her 2018 Nonesuch album Landfall in collaboration with Kronos Quartet.

    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra)'s new album, The Past Is Still Alive, is out now. Segarra made the album during a period of personal grief, when they found inspiration in radical poetry, railroad culture, outsider art, the work of writer Eileen Myles, and activist groups like ACT UP and Gran Fury. Segarra uses their lyrics as a way to immortalize and say goodbye to those they have loved and lost, and to honor both the heartbroken and the hopeful parts of themselves. "Segarra has created an epic tale of life on the road, a nearly mythic version of their own life story that stands alongside other great American musical travelogues," exclaims NPR Music. "Career-defining." Rolling Stone says: "Segarra has honed their craft into a cohesive, astonishingly realized singer-songwriter record ... the best batch of songs Segarra's ever written." Paste calls it "a celebratory measure of love, sanctuary, and defiance ... In their hands, the trauma of the present day is a prelude to the possibilities of a better tomorrow."
