MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

WELCOME TO THE 65TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS®, a night dedicated to honoring musical excellence, witnessing amazing performances, and celebrating the miracle of music.

Music is humanity’s greatest natural resource. It has the power to heal, the power to improve mental, spiritual and even physical health. It can change minds, moods, perspectives. Music changes our hearts. When we feel invisible, music sees us. When we are afraid, music comforts us. When we are in love, music inspires us. It binds up our wounds. It breaks down walls. Music is the shortest distance between two points, bringing us together like nothing else.

The world needs music’s many powers now more than ever. And so it is our great privilege to host this year’s GRAMMY Awards, to celebrate the year in music and to recognize some of the people who contributed to it.

I am so grateful for everyone at the Academy, our staff, members, elected leaders, and the show’s producers and partners who dedicate themselves to making not only this evening a success, but all the events and celebrations that make up GRAMMY Week.

The Recording Academy exists to serve the music community, to lift it up, to fight to protect music creators, to provide educational opportunities, to support music people in need. It is an honor to be part of this organization.

Tonight, we serve the music community by celebrating it. Thank you for joining us on Music’s Biggest Night®, the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Have an amazing time!

Musically yours,

ABBA

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Talk about a satisfying return for a band that seemed to never go away — even though ABBA did for a whopping 40 years. And what a comeback, by way of their new album, Voyage. The LP reminded the world of why legions of fans fell in love with ABBA and their timeless pop anthems like “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia,” with 10 tracks that could have been beamed from 1975 — like “Don’t Shut Me Down,” which was nominated for a GRAMMY for Record Of The Year in 2022, and “I Have Faith in You,” which was nominated in the same Category last year. ABBA have declared that this is their last hurrah, but if so, what a magical finale.

Because Voyage hits just like the… well, hits.

— Morgan Enos

ADELE

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

Looking at a new Adele album, with titles like “Cry Your Heart Out,” “Oh My God” and “I Drink Wine,” casual onlookers might envision a soundtrack to an extended ugly-crying session. Well, it can be that if you want it to be. But Adele is no one-dimensional artist — far from it. And her latest, 30, is a stunning cornucopia of wildly variable moods, production styles, and flavors of ear candy — as typified by “Easy on Me,” which has been nominated for Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year. Adele has long been a steady presence at the GRAMMYs, earning 15 golden gramophones and 25 nominations, including seven this year alone. — Morgan Enos

Sony Music Group Congratulates Our 65th Annual GRAMMY ® Nominees

ANITTA

BEST NEW ARTIST

In 2022, J Balvin interviewed Anitta, calling the singer/songwriter “one of the greatest artists of history in Brazil.” Indeed, she recently set a Guinness World Record as the first Latin solo artist to reach No. 1 on Spotify with her 2021 hit “Envolver.” But rather than revel in her achievements, the artist born Larissa de Macedo Machado struck a note of humility. “Most times I’m very worried about everyone, caring about everyone, thinking about my family and making sure everyone is good,” she told Balvin in their chat for Interview. “I’m actually very much the opposite of this powerful, invincible person that I sell as an artist.” This dichotomy of bravado and vulnerability is central to Anitta’s artistry. Onstage, she can seem larger than life — and in some ways, she is. But the sensitivity and resilience in her voice reminds us of her profound humanity. — Morgan Enos

BAD BUNNY

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Bad Bunny may have issued one of the hottest pop albums of the year — of any regional genre or national origin — with Un Verano Sin Ti It’s the sort of work that bridges international markets, sells out Yankee Stadium two nights in a row, and debuts atop the Billboard 200 (becoming only the second Spanish-language album to do so). It’s also the kind of album that makes GRAMMY history, as Un Verano Sin Ti is the first-ever all-Spanish-language album to be nominated for Album Of The Year. Loosened-up, tropical-inflected tunes like “Me Porto Bonito,” “Yo No Soy Celoso” and “Aguacero” don’t chew the scenery to impress you; they seem as natural as breathing, which belies the level of craft involved in each song’s construction, and the subtle emotional incisiveness of his messaging. Un Verano Sin Ti is a summer dream — and an unforgettable one. — Morgan Enos

20 THE 65 TH GRAMMYs GENERAL FIELD NOMINEES

BEYONCÉ

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

The engine of RENAISSANCE, Beyoncé’s first album in six and a half years, is the eternal power of the dance floor — both in sound and spirit. Of course, this has been a through line of her past work, for which she’s picked up an astounding 28 GRAMMYs (the most of any performing artist in GRAMMY history). But never before has it been contained and consolidated on one album like this. This aesthetic doesn’t render RENAISSANCE a mere throwback, but a future-forward addition to the dance/pop lineage. “BREAK MY SOUL,” which is nominated for Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year, speaks to radical self-acceptance; “PLASTIC OFF THE SOFA” is cinematic and immersive. RENAISSANCE is the first in a three-part installment, but it’s anyone’s guess as to where this boundarybreaker will venture next. Until then, this dance party is forever. — Morgan Enos

BONNIE RAITT

SONG OF THE YEAR

Fifty-two years after Bonnie Raitt released her self-titled debut album, the 10-time GRAMMY winner’s 18th LP, Just Like That, demonstrates how her craft is as vivacious and daring as ever. Complemented by the flicking strings of Raitt’s signature acoustic guitar, the album’s title track — which marks her first career Song Of The Year nomination — vividly unspools a powerful story of a surprise visitor a woman greets at her door. “When I was writing ‘Just Like That,’ I pitched it in a key that would have been too low for me,” Raitt revealed to NPR, detailing how she embodied the song’s fictional protagonist. “I wanted to take on that character’s voice of imagining a woman that had been really beaten up by life.” — Rob LeDonne

BRANDI CARLILE

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR

After revisiting the past in her bestselling memoir, Broken Horses, Brandi Carlile returned to her pen and paper to conjure her seventh album, In These Silent Days. The sophisticated, inviting album opens strikingly with Carlile’s 2022 GRAMMYnominated hit, “Right On Time,” before easing into “You and Me on the Rock,” which is nominated for Record Of The Year at the 65th GRAMMY Awards. Deeply personal and quietly romantic, “You and Me on the Rock” reflects on the solid foundation of Carlile’s home life with her wife, Catherine, and their two daughters. The song also features Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of indiepop group Lucius on backing vocals. As Carlile described it to Stereogum, “The song just felt really feminine to me.”

— Jack Tregoning

COLDPLAY

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

The world first fell in love with Coldplay for their clear-eyed, intimate tales about romantic insecurity and longing. Now, their songs are about everything, literally — their 2021 set, Music of the Spheres, lyrically transcends the concerns of terra firma and bounds through the celestials. Everything about the album is a wild swing, which befits a band who sells out stadiums around the globe. Perhaps what’s most remarkable about the group’s ninth LP is that, despite becoming so colossal, they haven’t sacrificed their core identity. “Humankind” is a Kubrickian update on their anthemic mold, and “Let Somebody Go,” featuring Selena Gomez, feels as pared-down as their intimate, beloved debut, Parachutes. On top of Music of the Spheres’ GRAMMY nominations for Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, the BTS collab “My Universe” is nominated in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Category. — Morgan Enos

DOJA CAT

RECORD OF THE YEAR

On her GRAMMY-nominated third album, Planet Her, Doja Cat invited listeners into a world entirely of her own creation. After seeing success with the album’s first three singles — the GRAMMY-winning SZA collab “Kiss Me More,” the Weekndfeaturing hit “You Right” and the top-10 jam “Need To Know” — Doja kept the momentum alive (and earned another GRAMMY nod) with “Woman.” To craft the song’s distinctive, Afrobeats-inspired sound, Doja turned to a brain trust of producers who are practiced in dancehall, reggae, pop, and R&B: Crate Classics, Linden Jay, Aynzli Jones, and Yeti Beats. For all the sleekness of the production, Doja holds center stage, stepping lithely between singing and rapping on the theme of female empowerment. Top it all off with her immaculately choreographed dancing in the song’s GRAMMY-nominated music video, and consider Doja Cat a triple threat.

DJ KHALED

SONG OF THE YEAR

DJ Khaled stayed true to his reputation as the ringmaster of superstars on his 2022 album, GOD DID. Among the album’s 18 star-studded songs, Khaled

Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, JAY-Z, John

and Fridayy

on power — and the power of being grateful. With an eight-minute runtime, the momentous song is held up by a pillar of a chorus, which resolutely proclaims, “They counted us out/ They didn’t think that we would make it/ Oh, they didn’t believe in us/ Oh, but I know God did, God did.”

DOM i & JD BECK

BEST NEW ARTIST

Jazz has always experienced crossover hits, but DOMi & JD Beck are a brand-new kind — plugging jazz virtuosity into the zoomer sphere of memes, TikTok soundbites and all-caps song titles. But Beck’s partnership with French-born keyboardist DOMi is ultimately art-forward, despite the abundant silliness within their act. Both youngsters are virtuosos in every sense; even more profoundly, they’re on a mission to make virtuosity cool again. Despite their extreme technical facility, the duo’s 2022 debut album, NOT TIGHT, is eminently catchy and listenable. As such, it could get kids who don’t know Herbie Hancock from Kurt Rosenwinkel into America’s Music — at the very least, because both legends appear on the album. If jazz lives or dies based on whether younger generations embrace it, then this is the future of the music. Now that’s tight. — Morgan Enos

GAYLE

SONG OF THE YEAR

An irreverent proclamation became a forceful anthem and catapulted GAYLE as one of 2022’s brightest breakouts. Flipping the alphabet into a telloff breakup anthem, “abcdefu” effectively lodged itself into the ears of listeners largely thanks to its frankness, with legions of fans relating to the 18-year-old Texas native as one of pop’s newest, brutally honest truthtellers. GAYLE’s cathartic singalong chorus and power-pop production enabled “abcdefu” to first explode into viral infamy before topping both of Billboard’s global charts. Now, it enjoys a victory lap by nabbing a nomination for Song Of The Year.

HARRY STYLES

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

With his 2017 self-titled debut and follow-up, 2019’s Fine Line, Harry Styles had already catapulted himself far past the purview of One Direction, his former band. But his third album, Harry’s House, ups the ante in a new way; it presents a totally livable, self-contained domicile. Within the LP, one can take a load off on the couch, pontificate in the kitchen, or brood on the edge of the bed. How did Styles make an album with all of those qualities? By imbuing every song with that charm — a totally inhabitable kind. Especially “As it Was,” a whiplash helping of pop pleasure that’s been nominated for four GRAMMYs, including for Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year. Fans worldwide set up camp at Harry’s House, and have no plans to vacate anytime soon. Because kicking back in there is just too much fun. — Morgan

KENDRICK LAMAR

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

In the years following his gritty, explosive DAMN., Kendrick Lamar went off the grid and into a period of profound selfexamination. “I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening,” Lamar wrote in an August 2021 blog post. “Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family. While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most.” Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, Lamar’s fifth album, is foremost about fatherhood, fidelity, and obliterating old attitudes by fire. The album was foreshadowed by “The Heart Part 5,” an exploration of perspective with an unforgettable, deepfake video. In the ambitious, transcendent album proper, Lamar also ruthlessly interrogates his ingrained attitudes about fatherhood (“Father Time”), relationships with women (“We Cry Together”), and transgender relatives (“Auntie Diaries”). — Morgan Enos

30 THE 65 TH GRAMMYs GENERAL FIELD NOMINEES
Enos

LATTO

BEST NEW ARTIST

Since young Atlanta rapper Latto broke out in 2020 with “B**** from the Souf,” she’s been clear that navigating the music industry as a woman has been challenging — to say the least. “Female rappers are being silenced in the industry and bullied behind closed doors,” the MC born Alyssa Michelle Stephens told Complex in 2022, just before releasing her watershed album, 777. No matter whoever’s assailed Latto in her career, she’ll inarguably have the last laugh: 777 is a beast of a hip-hop, pop and R&B album, boasting bangers like the GRAMMY-nominated “Big Energy.” 777 is an extremely effective calling card for this emerging talent, who has already played arenas as the opening act on Lizzo’s 2022 tour — and seems to be just getting started. — Morgan Enos

LIZZO

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

As Lizzo was nearing completion on her fourth album, Special, the three-time GRAMMY winner got the feeling something was missing. Eager to channel the uplifting confidence of her 2019 hit, “Good As Hell,” Lizzo created “About Damn Time” — and found that positivity and then some. With a viral TikTok dance to boot, “About Damn Time” hit its stride as summer warmed up and landed Lizzo her second No. 1 hit. After the “major traumas and hard experiences” of recent years, Lizzo told Audacy she “wanted to write a song that allowed us to take a moment and celebrate our survival, and celebrate how far we’ve come.” The rest of Special is just as celebratory for both Lizzo and her fans, from the uplifting title track to the introspective single “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready).” — Jack Tregoning

32 THE 65 TH GRAMMYs GENERAL FIELD NOMINEES

MÅNESKIN

BEST NEW ARTIST

Måneskin may have brought a 55-year-old song, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons’ “Beggin’,” to the TikTok generation — but that’s just one part of the story when it comes to this thrillingly weird glam-rock sensation. In many ways, they represent the “return to rock” that so many have longed for amid the domination of trap hats and autotune. But they don’t sound or look like the return of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. The Italian band (whose name is Danish for “moonlight”) sounds more like 2000s indie bands like Franz Ferdinand or the Bravery than Soundgarden or Aerosmith. For more entryways into Måneskin’s universe, check out the snotty “I Wanna Be Your Slave” and the outrageously horny “Mammamia.” Really, any direction you come at this flamboyant, genderbending band is bound to be rewarding, as they play by nobody’s rules but their own. —

MARY J. BLIGE

RECORD OF THE YEAR ALBUM OF THE YEAR

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul returned in 2022 in multiple surprising ways. In February, she released Good Morning Gorgeous, a work of emotional depth with a surprising bite to it. Thirty years after the release of her debut album, What’s The 411, the ninetime GRAMMY winner hasn’t lost one iota of her clarity of creative vision or cachet as an R&B innovator. This is reflected in the bold, brassy sound throughout Good Morning Gorgeous — including the title track, which is nominated for Record Of The Year — as well as the presence of other high-profile guests, like DJ Khaled on “Amazing,” Anderson .Paak on “Here With Me,” Dave East on “Rent Money,” and Usher on “Need Love.” Clearly, the Queen’s reign continues unabated. — Morgan Enos

MOLLY TUTTLE

BEST NEW ARTIST

Representing the Newport Folk-adjacent pantheon — the world that includes strummers and pickers from the indie-folk, bluegrass and Americana communities — is Molly Tuttle. As a child, Tuttle initially played violin, but swiftly fell in love with the guitar, soaking up the bluegrass records that filled the air at home. Her tutelage at Berklee College of Music led her to Nashville in 2015, and she landed a record deal with indie label Compass Records two years later. After two studio albums on Compass (2019’s When You’re Ready and 2020’s But I’d Rather Be With You), Tuttle became a Nonesuch signee with her new album, 2022’s rootsy, enveloping Crooked Tree — a breakthrough that helped her become a Best New Artist nominee. In a way, as a bearer of the bluegrass flame, the whole tradition has led to her. — Morgan Enos

MUNI LONG

BEST NEW ARTIST

Muni Long was once behind the curtain as a songwriter — for the likes of Rihanna, Fifth Harmony and Ariana Grande — under the name Priscilla Renea (her biological first and middle name). In fact, she received a GRAMMY nomination for her co-writing work on H.E.R.’s Back of My Mind — which was up for Album Of The Year at the 2022 GRAMMYs. Along the way, she developed her craft as a singer, adopting the name Muni Long in 2019. Now, Long has consolidated her decade-plus of stellar work on 2022’s Public Displays of Affection, which solidified that she can be a star in her own right — with a Best New Artist nod to show for it.

OMAR APOLLO

BEST NEW ARTIST

Born to Mexican parents and reared in Indiana, Omar Apollo began charting his course to the music industry by working a day job and uploading music to SoundCloud. All the while — true to his generation who grew up in the iPod era — he soaked up the wildly variable sounds of Prince, Rick James, Paul Simon, the Internet, and beyond. Back in 2019, while planting the seeds for his debut album, 2022’s IVORY, the bilingual singer/ songwriter hinted that future music would be as multifarious as his influences. “I love dancing, and I love funk. But I don’t think it will ever be just one thing,” he told the website Lyrical Lemonade, while also expressing a desire to incorporate rapping Spanish lyrics. “I think the album will have a lot of elements, and be really diverse.” He wasn’t kidding: The labored-over IVORY was a swing for the fences, and Apollo connected. — Morgan Enos

SAMARA JOY

BEST NEW ARTIST

Young jazz singer Samara Joy arrived on the map proudly wearing two primary influences on her sleeve: Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. Sure, Joy might take direct inspiration from the approaches of Vaughan, Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, and the rest, from phrasing to vocalese. But it only takes one listen to prove that Joy’s art is new, possessing a fresh flair and communication style. Joy’s 2021 self-titled debut was suffused with buoyant charm and technical facility; her 2022 follow-up for Verve, Linger Awhile, only ups the ante. Therein, she tackles tunes like Nancy Wilson’s “Guess Who I Saw Today,” a reimagined version of Ronnell Bright’s “Sweet Pumpkin,” and the Frank Sinatra- and Nina Simonepopularized “Can’t Get Out of This Mood.”

STEVE LACY

RECORD OF THE YEAR SONG OF THE YEAR

Every aspect of Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” conveys an unwavering uniqueness — whether through its multiple adventurous melodies, its seemingly stream-of-consciousness lyrics, or unflinching delivery. Concocted for his sophomore album, Gemini Rights, “Bad Habit” was the result of Lacy producing over 300 songs before whittling it down to the album’s 10 tracks. “Bad Habit” became the 24-year-old Los Angeles native’s first chart-topping single in the wake of earning a GRAMMY nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album for his 2019 debut Apollo XXI. In an interview with GRAMMY.com, Lacy said, “That’s the biggest thing that I learned about myself on this album: trusting my instincts.” — Jack Tregoning

TAYLOR SWIFT

SONG OF THE YEAR

Throughout the years, when Taylor Swift would invariably hint at a longer version of 2012’s “All Too Well” during interviews, her die-hard army of Swifties took notice. And when it finally arrived upon the release of the re-recorded Red (Taylor’s Version), it took the song from fan-favorite to magnum opus. In a fresh and poetic style — backed by subtle, acoustic production — “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” depicts the exuberance and ruminative sadness of falling in and out of love. The extended version of the track became a cultural touchstone, from an acclaimed (and now GRAMMY-nominated) music video to its call-to-action lyrics (“f— the patriarchy!”), and was ripe for endless speculation about possible inspirations. Yet it’s the song’s craft that shows that exemplary music always lies on the other side of heartbreak. — Rob LeDonne

TOBE NWIGWE

BEST NEW ARTIST

The past decade and change has seen Nigerian artists even further elevated on the world stage. The West African country has not only been heralded by Afrobeats artists like Wizkid and Burna Boy, but also by straight-up hiphop — and the Houston MC Tobe Nwigwe is a prime example. In 2009, a foot injury diverted Nwigwe’s life path from football to music. Amid starting a nonprofit for Houston youth, Nwigwe caught attention on social media after posting videos of himself rapping with his kids and wife. One thing led to another, and Nwigwe hit the ground running as a recording artist, releasing a whopping nine EPs between 2017 and 2021. His breakout project, 2022’s moMINTS, exudes love for Houston through tunes that stick in the brain, like “DESTRUCTION,” “LORD FORGIVE ME” and “CATFISH BLACKENED.”

WET LEG

BEST NEW ARTIST

The witty, lusty, needle-sharp duo of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers was impossible to ignore in 2022; their self-titled debut landed in the industry like a water balloon. “I went to school and I got the Big D!” the post-punkers announced in their breakout single, “Chaise Longue,” a song everybody seemed to have some extreme reaction to — chief among them, jaw-dropping relief that wackadoo fun was back in indie rock. Rarely have deadpan non sequiturs added up to something this catchy, infectious and fresh. And wherever Wet Leg goes next, you can’t say it won’t be interesting — so it goes with this deeply satirical, always catchy, very welcome anomaly of a rock band.

LAST YEAR WITH MY BROTHER JON BATISTE WAS A TRUE HONOR AND I’M EXCITED TO SEE WHO WINS THIS YEARS “BIG ONE”.

Special congratulations are in order as we celebrate this years well deserved Trustees Award winner the great Ellis Marsalis;

A jazz pianist, educator and mentor who in his own words “doesn’t teach jazz but teaches students”. His ability to unlock a musician’s deepest and truest musical identity through his teaching has influenced some of the greatest musicians today.

“Your music collapses all languages evoking one global transcendent feeling that can only be described as undeniably Ellis Marsalis.

Your legacy will continue to inspire and delight listeners for generations to come”.

With deep appreciation and respect,

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD ANN & NANCY WILSON OF HEART

Ann & Nancy Wilson of Heart are verging on the half-century mark since they formed their groundbreaking group in 1974. Through five decades of changing musical eras, their impact has not waned. From the ’70s, when Ann set the blueprint for rock frontwomen and Nancy established her oft-imitated and never-quite-duplicated guitar playing style, through the ’80s when the band dominated MTV, to 2019 when the sisters spearheaded the all-female “Love Alive” tour, the Wilsons broke barriers as musicians, singers and songwriters.

The two started early in music. Nancy showed marked virtuosity on the acoustic guitar at 9 years old. Ann, four years her senior, was already singing in the style of blues greats — albeit filtered through rock and roll.

Their 1976 debut album, Dreamboat Annie, spawned the hits “Magic Man” and “Crazy on You,” which remain staples on classic rock radio. “Barracuda” from 1977’s Little Queen followed suit. Drawing from folk, hard rock and the daring to not be pigeonholed by their gender, the Wilsons were among the few women

granted authority on a rock stage dominated by men.

By the time the sisters glammed up and became MTV staples and chart-toppers in the mid-‘80s, they were proven songwriters and already a multiplatinum-selling band. It was the GRAMMYnominated Billboard No.1 album Heart that catapulted Ann and Nancy into the musical stratosphere. The album’s hits were ubiquitous, all cracking the Top 10. Its flagship song, “These Dreams”— sung by Nancy — hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. A year later, the band snagged that position again with “Alone” from their album Bad Animals, and with it, two more GRAMMY nominations. They continued their GRAMMY nomination streak with 1990’s Brigade

Over the course of 16 studio albums, the pair have sold 35 million records and had seven Top 10 albums. Ann and Nancy also charted on the New York Times bestsellers list with their 2013 memoir, Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll. Ann and Nancy individually extended their musical reach to the silver screen. Ann through her iconic voice on the unforgettable songs “Almost Paradise,” “Best Man in the World” and “Surrender

to Me” on

timeless films Footloose, The Golden Child and Tequila Sunrise, respectively. Nancy through her essential, awardwinning scores for the box office smashes Say Anything, Almost Famous and Vanilla Sky.

Their abilities have continuously attracted accomplished musicians of all genders who speak with reverence about their skills and consider performing alongside as a distinct privilege. Their songs have been sampled by the likes of Eminem, Lil Wayne, G-Eazy, and Nas.

No matter how much they accomplish, the need to create is ever present with the Wilson sisters. In the last couple of years, they have both released solo albums. Nancy with her first album of original material in 2021 with You and Me, and Ann in 2022 with her third solo album, Fierce Bliss.

Honors and accolades abound for Ann and Nancy: the ASCAP Pop Music Awards Founders Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. But they remain active. As Nancy said in her Rock Hall acceptance speech: “We’re not finished rocking just yet.”

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD BOBBY M c FERRIN

Whenever Bobby McFerrin sings, freedom reigns. It twists and shouts; caresses and soothes; howls and coruscates. After racking up 10 GRAMMY Awards and worldwide acclaim, McFerrin said this when the National Endowment for the Arts inducted him into its 2020 Jazz Masters class: “My pursuit of music has always been about freedom and joy.”

The son of two incredible singers, Sara Cooper (a former vocal professor at Fullerton College) and Robert McFerrin (an operatic baritone who was the first Black American man to sing at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera), McFerrin seemed destined to become a star. He sang in church choirs while growing up in Los Angeles. He studied music at California State University at Sacramento and Cerritos College in Norwalk, California. Afterward,

he played piano and organ with the Ice Follies and in pop bands. And in 1980, he toured with the iconic jazz singer, Jon Hendricks.

McFerrin was 31 years old when he released his debut LP in 1982. But his artistry sounded fresh and fully developed. He contorted his four-octave voice in an array of colors, textures and improvisational shapes, liberating the role of a jazz singer.

McFerrin’s reputation as an ingenious and fearless virtuoso grew. His 1984 sophomore LP, The Voice, marked the first time a jazz singer recorded an entire album without any accompaniment or overdubbing. In addition to showcasing marvelous interpretations of songs by James Brown and Billy Strayhorn, it also revealed McFerrin to be an engaging composer through such infectious songs as “The Jump,” and “I’m My Own Walkman.”

A year later, his guest appearance on “Another Night In Tunisia” from the Manhattan Transfer’s LP, Vocalese, earned McFerrin his first two GRAMMY Awards. The following year, he won a GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Male for his stunning rendition of “Round Midnight,” featuring pianist Herbie Hancock from the movie soundtrack, Round Midnight. His collaboration with Hancock also garnered McFerrin another GRAMMY win in 1987 for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Male for “What Is This Thing Called Love?” from the LP, The Other Side Of Round Midnight.

For all of McFerrin’s exhilarating virtuosity, he imbues it with vast emotional range, especially humor. He can infuse his improvisations with the madcap kinetic energy of a Tom and Jerry cartoon chase scene, then pull the amorous heartstrings with a tender ballad. Of course, the lyrics that McFerrin became most famous for are from his sanguine 1988 hit, “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” which catapulted him into superstardom. The song won three GRAMMY Awards — Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male.That enormous success didn’t impede McFerrin’s flair for adventure. He brought a quixotic spark to his records and projects that broke the conventions of jazz singing. He collaborated with classical music heavyweights such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist W.A. Mathieu and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra; he has created elaborate vocal choirs such as 2010’s VOCAbuLarieS with composer Roger Treece; and delved deep into the Negro spiritual canon on his enthralling 2013 album, spirit you al

Nearly 40 years after winning his first GRAMMY, McFerrin’s continued boundless musicality is a true embodiment of artistic freedom.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FLORENCE BALLARD, DIANA ROSS & MARY WILSON OF THE SUPREMES

production team of Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier — had developed a nearly foolproof recipe for success that would shepherd the trio into the mainstream during a very divisive time: captivating three-part harmonies, glamorous styling, infectious melodies, and relatable, catchy lyrics.

As segregation nominally ended in 1964, the group began one of the most historic runs in pop-music history, releasing five consecutive No. 1 records from 1964–65: “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Come See About Me,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” and “Back in My Arms Again.”

During times of significant cultural and political change, people often turn to music to process complicated feelings, briefly escape discomfort, or feel less alone. Sometimes, the music directly addresses social issues. Other times, it simply captures the spirit of the moment. Such was the case with the Supremes’ 1964 breakout single, “Where Did Our Love Go.” Released in 1964, two weeks before Lyndon B. Johnson signed the landmark Civil Rights Act into law, the single helped define the sound of young America, and more specifically, the sound of young Black America. “America was changing, and we were at the top of that change with

‘Where Did Our Love Go,’” Wilson said in a 2018 interview. “Martin Luther King was speaking about love, and so were we. It was a time when peace was needed; the civil rights movement was happening. The song … had a peaceful, soothing message, and it fit the times.”

But becoming the first all-female group to reach the top of the Billboard charts was only the beginning for Florence Ballard, Diana Ross and Mary Wilson of the Supremes — a trio who created the blueprint for future pop-R&B girl groups such as the Pointer Sisters, En Vogue, TLC, SWV, Destiny’s Child, and more.

A few years after signing with Motown Records in 1961, label chief Berry Gordy, the Supremes, and their songwriting/

The Supremes attracted listeners of all races with their simple message, catchy tunes, accessible choreography, and mesmerizing elegance, often playing to integrated audiences. Helping to unify a deeply divided America in the 1960s was a massive accomplishment in its own right, but their mere existence as a hitmaking trio of glamorous and talented Black female entertainers gave hope to a generation of young Black girls and women.

Today, you can hear the Supremes’ historic run of hits, including 12 total No. 1s, everywhere — streaming services, TV commercials, movies, and beyond — nearly 60 years later. The group’s impact is undeniable — their enchanting performances and melodic hits gave hope to the women of their time and paved the way for future generations of female entertainers in the industry. While the world has changed since “Where Did Our Love Go” was released in July 1962, Ballard, Ross and Wilson’s enduring message of hope continues to resonate as the fight for equality wages on.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD SLICK RICK “THE RULER”

According to the website WhoSampled, Slick Rick’s voice and music have been used more than 1,800 times, making him one of the most sampled hip-hop artists in history. Rick raps in a droll, leisurely cadence with a heavy British accent and an unforgettably nasal voice, and sometimes swerves into cartoony vocal tones. His classic single about a stick-up kid on the run, “Children’s Story,” swings between slapstick humor and unexpected tragedy. “Cops shot the kid, I can still hear him scream,” he raps. Then there’s “Hey Young World,” one of the most affecting and moving songs in the genre’s history, on which he dispenses wisdom to troubled youth with gentle yet firm verses. “Believe it or not, the Lord still shines on you.”

Born Ricky Walters in 1965 to a Jamaican family, he immigrated from London to the Bronx in 1976. His famed eyepatch is the result of a childhood accident. While attending Fiorella H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art, he formed the Kangol Crew with Dana Dane.

Walters initially called himself Ricky D when he joined beatboxer and rapper Doug E. Fresh’s Get Fresh Crew in 1984. The group’s debut 12-inch, “The Show” b/w “LaDi-Da-Di,” was inescapable on Black music radio stations between 1985 and 1986. The single was eventually certified gold, a major accomplishment for a record that never cracked the Billboard Hot 100. Slick Rick signed with Def Jam as a solo artist and in 1988 released his debut masterwork, The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick, yielding breakout singles like “Children’s Story,” “Hey Young World” and “Teenage Love.”

Four decades after he dazzled hip-hop fans across the globe with “La-Di-Da-Di,” his witty and unapologetically raunchy solo showcase for Doug E. Fresh & the Get Fresh Crew, Slick Rick’s legacy as a masterful storyteller, pioneering melodic rapper, and style icon remains secure.

Slick Rick emerged during the early years of hip-hop’s vaunted golden age. He was a platinum-selling solo star in an era defined by world-conquering groups like Public Enemy and N.W.A. Just like his peers, Slick Rick created sounds mimicked in the decades since, whether it’s Snoop Dogg rewriting “La-Di-Da-Di” as “Lodi Dodi,” or Future, Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert harmonizing in a flow reminiscent of Ricky D on Doug E. Fresh’s “The Show.”

At the height of his success, a dispute with a cousin led to violence and a prison sentence. Bailed out by Def Jam’s Russell Simmons, Rick recorded a second album, 1991’s The Ruler’s Back, highlighted by the rap hit “I Shouldn’t Have Done It” before being convicted and sentenced to years in prison. A third album, Behind Bars, was constructed from verses completed during furloughs and work-release programs. Its highlight is the title track, which boasts jazzy, contemplative production from Warren G and Rick’s softly poignant lyrics about life in the slammer.

Despite being a hip-hop elder statesman upon completion of his sentence, Slick Rick quickly appeared on Outkast’s “Da Art of Storytellin,’ Pt. 1.” A fourth album, 1999’s goldselling The Art of Storytelling, proved that interest in his work remained high. Unlike too many of his peers, Slick Rick has continued to score high-profile cameos in recent years, from JAY-Z’s hit “Girls, Girls, Girls” to collaborations with Mariah Carey, Mos Def, Black Eyed Peas, and Missy Elliott. His style seems ageless, and representative of a throughline between hip-hop’s mythic New York past and its global present.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD KURT COBAIN, DAVE GROHL & KRIST NOVOSELIC OF NIRVANA

audiences while setting up an untenable paradox with which the band would ultimately have to wrestle. Their pop melodies played against guitar noise and boldly dynamic verse/chorus constructions led to unlikely chart and sales success. But that success fed their own backlash against the trappings of pop stardom, influenced in no small part by lead singer and songwriter Kurt Cobain’s drug addictions and mental illness. After Cobain’s suicide in 1994, Nirvana’s story would become tabloid fodder, but their legacy would prove out as instrumental in turning alternative rock into a ’90s phenomenon.

Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic met while attending high school in the Seattle area. They kicked around for a few years under various band names and with a number of drummers. In 1989, their debut album Bleach hinted at how the noise, menace, melodies, and songcraft would distill into their fully formed sound just two years later. Drummer Dave Grohl would join permanently in 1990, and the band would sign with major label DGC for Nevermind, the breakthrough album that would set them on the course to unlikely superstardom. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” would become an MTV staple, ultimately affirmed in the pop-culture zeitgeist by a “Weird” Al Yankovic parody.

Their response to sudden fame was 1993’s follow-up In Utero, sometimes referred to as Cobain’s “suicide note,” a deliberately difficult and dour record whose attitude might have been best summed up by “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter,” on which Cobain sings “Use just once and destroy/ Invasion of our privacy.” Still, it was a stunning work of willful personal dissonance.

Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana didn’t invent grunge, but they mainstreamed it in the early ’90s, arguably accidentally and maybe even regretfully. In the process, they almost overnight changed the tenor of rock from exuberant hair metal to a heavier, socially disaffected sound. They became the defining rock band of their era, but also the face of the many troubled musicians who emerged from the Northwest underground scene.

As a punk-rooted, pop-obsessed indie rock band that worshipped at the altar of metal progenitors Black Sabbath, Nirvana created a unique sound accessible to multiple

In April of 1994, Cobain was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. MTV Unplugged In New York would be released posthumously, winning a GRAMMY for Best Alternative Music Performance and clearly showing a band that was, like all great bands, growing and redefining its sound. Cobain’s suicide followed the overdose death of Mother Love Bone’s Andrew Wood and would be followed years later by fellow Seattle-scene rockers Layne Staley of Alice In Chains and Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, sadly, seemingly preordained finales for musicians who sang authentically about such real-world trauma as social alienation, abuse, isolation, and addiction. Seldom has a genre of music so deeply reflected the raw emotions and turmoil of the artists.

In 2005, the Library of Congress added Nevermind to its National Recording Registry of culturally important recordings. Pitchfork called Nirvana “the greatest and most legendary band of the 1990s.” The band were first-ballot inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

If the mark of greatness is that your art changes the medium, then Nirvana’s greatness is unassailable.

Sledge (“We Are Family”) and Diana Ross (“I’m Coming Out”), among others. By 1983, Rodgers had teamed with David Bowie to produce the massive and not coincidentally titled Let’s Dance. The album contemporized Bowie’s love of American R&B and Rodgers’ undeniable dance pedigree, and it topped charts around the world.

After that, Rodgers found himself behind the Board on some of the era’s signature records: Madonna’s Like A Virgin, Duran Duran’s “The Reflex,” and ending the decade with the B-52’s Cosmic Thing and the inescapable “Love Shack.”

The next decade held some dark notes. The Rodgers-produced Vaughan Brothers debut Family Style was released just one month after Stevie Ray’s death. In 1996, Edwards, Rodger’s constant collaborator and friend, died. Still, Rodgers powered on, scoring numerous films, and by the early 2000s had dived into video game soundtracks. In 2013, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” which owed no small debt to CHIC’S sound, earned Rodgers his first GRAMMYs, including Record Of The Year.

Even in the company of those who have been honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards, the breadth of Nile Rodgers’ musical accomplishments is difficult to fathom. Over the course of a nearly 50-year career, he has lived a number of professional lives. And over the course of those professional lives, he’s lived a number of actual lives. His triumph over several serious health scares now seems like it was destined as he continues to positively impact the culture.

By 19, Rodgers was playing guitar in the Apollo Theater house band backing

the likes of Aretha Franklin, and in a Sesame Street touring show, where he met Bernard Edwards.

Soon, he and Edwards had conceived CHIC. The band would become one of the defining groups of the disco era. They struck gold with their first single, 1977’s “Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah),” and followed it up with two No. 1s, “Le Freak” in 1978 and “Good Times” in 1979. But by the early ’80s, disco was done, and it would have been fair to think it would take Rodgers’ career with it.

But all along, Rodgers and Edwards were writing and producing for other artists, including huge hits for Sister

Rodgers has also dedicated his time and resources to helping others, founding the We Are Family Foundation in the wake of the Sept. 11 attack to inspire and educate people about mutual respect, understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity. Rodgers has also served several terms as a Recording Academy Trustee.

In 2018, he co-founded Hipgnosis Song Fund with his manager Merck Mercuriadis, which has become a leader in acquiring and representing song rights, with the goal of not just profits, but putting the songwriter in a more equitable position in the industry.

Despite heart issues and cancer diagnoses over the years, Rodgers’ numerous incarnations in music give him a unique standing in the industry. And he’s universally appreciated for his humanity as much as his music.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD MA RAINEY

tell the story of her life — raw and uncut — at a time when the narrative of the Black female experience was absent from mainstream music.

In 1904, Pridgett met and married William “Pa” Rainey and became Ma Rainey, a play on her husband’s nickname. The pair would have success on the minstrel circuit and touring together as Rainey and Rainey, Assassinators of the Blues until their divorce in 1916. Rainey then set out to craft a stage persona with bulletproof confidence and swagger.

Rainey began penning original 12-bar blues — a rare occurrence in an era when most acts sang covers. Her songs contained unconventional themes about lust, infidelity, backstabbing, drinking, and vengeance — no-holds-barred music about Black female autonomy.

Also at the vanguard of style, Rainey would don ostrich feathers, sequined dresses, wigs, heavy stage makeup, and flash her gold teeth while moaning original songs about sexual freedom and love.

However, sex wasn’t the only theme of Rainey’s music. Her song “Black Eye Blues” centers on a woman threatening vengeance on an abusive lover — a predecessor to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan’s “Stone Cold Dead In The Market (He Had It Coming)” and the Chicks’ “Goodbye Earl.”

Rainey’s trailblazing didn’t end there. The early feminist icon was among the first female artists to embrace her reported queerness in her music. Academic and political activist Angela Davis has called her 1928 song “Prove It On Me” — which centers on a masculine woman who dresses in men’s clothing and dates women — “a cultural precursor to the lesbian cultural movement of the 1970s which began to crystallize around the performance and recording of lesbian-affirming songs.”

More than a century after she first discovered the blues while touring, “mother of the blues” Ma Rainey’s impact and influence is still being reckoned with, as the 2020 Viola Davis film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom attests. Rainey’s authenticity, booming voice, mesmerizing stage persona, and transgressive lyrics opened the door for the female artists who followed in her footsteps, from Janis Joplin to Megan Thee Stallion.

Born in Columbus, Georgia, in the mid-1880s, Gertrude Pridgett began singing in church at the age of 12. After honing her skills, she began performing in a local stage show as a teen before touring the American South with various Black vaudeville acts. In 1902, Rainey came across a young woman singing a somber heartbreak song. She added it to her performances, and, according to legend, when asked to describe the song, Rainey coined it “the blues.” The genre presented the audacious performer with the opportunity to

Rainey’s songs, many of which she wrote, have become lasting and often-covered hallmarks of the blues: “See See Rider Blues,” “Moonshine Blues,” “Prove It On Me,” and “BoWeavil Blues,” among others.

Rainey made an indelible impact on mainstream music and the culture at-large. She mentored Bessie Smith to greatness and inspired Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington and Louis Armstrong (whom she once toured and recorded with). Poets of the Harlem Renaissance, such as Langston Hughes and Sterling Allen Brown, featured her in their collections, while literary great Alice Walker looked to her songwriting for inspiration for The Color Purple.

While Rainey’s impact was not widely celebrated in her lifetime, she began receiving her flowers a few decades after her death, with inductions into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as well as numerous books and essays about her life and legacy. The iconic blues pioneer’s radical embrace of sexuality and candor in her music continues to ripple through the sounds of the Black female pop acts that succeeded her.

for 25 years — and remembers astonishingly seat-of-his-pants gigs.

“He would just start playing a song, and I would have to figure out what it was — where the bridge goes, and if there is a bridge, what it does,” Douget recalls. “And then he would look at me with a little nod: ‘OK, now you play over it.’”

Rutz says Marsalis’ teaching style was commensurately formal and informal. He wasn’t stingy with sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of music. “He was incredibly erudite and astute,” Rutz says. “For such a serious and masterful musician, he was fun to be around.”

When saxophonist, clarinetist and composer John Ellis enrolled in the University of New Orleans in 1993, it was clear the place would be a breath of fresh air. Unlike “factorytype schools,” such as Berklee and University of North Texas, UNO was intimate and peer-to-peer.

His mentors would be none other than Harold Battiste — the esteemed musician, composer and arranger — and Ellis Marsalis, the pianist, educator and patriarch of a jazz dynasty (which includes trumpeter Wynton, saxophonist Branford, trumpeter Delfeayo, and drummer/vibraphonist Jason).

Almost immediately, Ellis realized he wasn’t in for a conventional jazz education. It would be far richer than that. “[Marsalis’] approach was kind of Socratic. There was a lot of questioning,” Ellis reflects in 2022. “Like a guide, he’d show you, and then encourage you to think for yourself.”

He’s not alone in this perception. Although bassist, composer and educator Roland Guerin didn’t study with him per se — he studied with Battiste and later played in Marsalis’ trio —

but Marsalis’ keen sense of inquiry outside the classroom still radiated.

“A lot of times, it wasn’t flat-out information that had a single purpose to it,” Guerin continues. “A lot of the things he shared were multipurpose. It was a reflection of life.”

Indeed, Marsalis’ techniques as a musician and educator weren’t simply a means to an end. Almost three years after Marsalis’ passing at 85, it’s abundantly clear he didn’t just teach us how to play, or listen. He taught us how to live.

What lessons for life did Marsalis impart through his musical instruction? One was staying flexible. Yes, Marsalis was authoritative, and he didn’t suffer foolishness gladly. But in his music-making, he was dynamic, loose and fun-loving, believing — in Ellis’ words — that “truth could come from unlikely sources.”

“He was always attuned to youth and attuned to learning, and considerate of that,” recalls trumpeter and composer Markus Rutz, who studied under Marsalis in the 1990s.

This also tracks with the experiences of saxophonist and educator Derek Douget. Douget played with his mentor

At all times, Marsalis cut to the heart of the matter. “He was a curious person, in terms of he enjoyed getting to the root of whatever situation,” Guerin says of his mentor. “He would ask a question to expose and spark the thought of the root of whatever it was.”

Oftentimes, that question was simple yet incisive: “What did you hear?”

“He taught them how to think and hear music and develop their own sort of dialogue,” says Sascha Just, who directed a documentary about Marsalis. “He helped them to grow into independent thinkers.”

Marsalis filtered these characteristics through an uncanny self-possession. In 2004, Wynton said this of his father: “The house could fall down and everyone would be running around, and he would still be sitting in his same chair.”

And just as Marsalis stood on his own two feet in the classroom and onstage, he instilled this sense of integrity in his six sons — both the musicians and nonmusicians. “It makes a lot of sense that his sons became such expert debaters,” Ellis says. “He was pressing them to defend their ideas.”

Marsalis’ loss reverberates through the jazz world, but he lives on through his progeny and students.

“I think that’s the biggest gift you can give a student,” Patscha says. “How to keep on going even after your journey with your teacher is over.”

TRUSTEES AWARD JIM STEWART

A country music aficionado, fiddler and banker, Jim Stewart somehow became the unlikely incubator of Southern soul music.

Stewart was the founder of Memphis, Tennessee’s Satellite Records. That might not ring bells, but when a California

label of the same name sued, Stewart changed his company’s name to Stax, a label that would come to define the R&B sound of the South in the ’60s and early ’70s.

Like Motown, its contemporary soul-music competitor in Detroit, Stax was a self-contained unit with a stable of songwriters, a house band, and its own, unique sounding studio. Stewart built the label by investing in the amazing, racially integrated core of musicians, producers and executives with which he surrounded himself, and by turning that racially integrated core into a strength in the heart of a racially divided city.

Stewart initially launched Satellite in 1957 to record country and rockabilly sides. Soon, he was introduced to R&B by staff producer Chips Moman, who would later go on to found American Sound Studios and produce hits with Elvis Presley. Stewart said discovering Black music was “like a blind man who suddenly gained his sight.” From that point on, nearly all of Stax’s output was R&B, including major hits from its remarkable stable of artists, from Booker T. & the M.G.’s and Carla and Rufus Thomas, to Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, the Staples Singers, the Dramatics, and others. The label’s unique studio, a converted theater with its original sloped floor that gave recordings a thick, bass-heavy sound, helped create the gritty sound of Southern R&B.

Along the way, Stewart cultivated a legendary team, many of whom have been recognized by Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement or Trustees Awards themselves. Perhaps most notable was his sister and early investor Estelle Axton, a key figure in the company’s success. As the proprietor of the record shop attached to Stax’s studio, her love of music and interaction with the community of young music fans led to the discovery of nascent talent and kept the label’s finger on the pulse of the market. In addition, there was interracial house band Booker T. & the M.G.’s (primarily Booker T. Jones, Steve Cropper, Donald “Duck” Dunn, Lewie Steinberg, and Al Jackson Jr. Cropper would serve as a primary A&R man and songwriter); house writers Isaac Hayes and David Porter; the Memphis Horns (Wayne Jackson and Andrew Love); Al Bell, who would later head the Motown Records Group; and, of course, Moman.

Like many small labels, Stax was obliged to turn to larger companies for distribution. It found a home in the early ’60s with the like-minded Atlantic Records, but when Atlantic was sold to Warner Brothers in the late ’60s, it began a cascade of financial issues that Stax ultimately couldn’t surmount. But by then, the legacy of this label that changed soul music, and the man who launched it, was firmly set.

TRUSTEES AWARD HENRY DILTZ

Henry Diltz’s famed career as a rock photographer was a bit of an accident — a happy one, to be sure. Diltz started as a musician, a cofounder of the Modern Folk Quartet. The group’s primary lasting recorded legacy was “This Could Be The Night,” a Phil Spector-produced track with a psychedelic Beach Boys vibe from 1966 that was never officially released as Spector began to withdraw from the music business.

The group broke up shortly thereafter, but while all the members went on to other roles in music, it’s Diltz’s career as a photographer that most stands out. As a member of MFQ, Diltz found himself in L.A. hanging out in the ’60s Laurel Canyon scene. He befriended everyone from the Monkees’ Micky Dolenz to Mama Cass; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Joni Mitchell and others.

While on tour, the members of MFQ bought cameras to alleviate road boredom. For Diltz, it would have

a gravitational pull. Soon, he was taking naturalistic photos of his Laurel Canyon friends. The photographernext-door vibe of Diltz’s pictures resonated with the artists who keyed into a feel that matched the authenticity of their music better than canned publicity shots.

It wasn’t long before Diltz’s unstaged photos were gracing album covers for the Doors’ Morrison Hotel, CSN’s debut and James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James. He teamed with artist and designer Gary Burden to create hundreds of now iconic album covers.

In 1969, Diltz was hired as the official photographer for the Woodstock and Monterey Pop festivals. But like so much of how rock and roll business was done at the time, for the former, “hired” equaled Woodstock lighting designer Chip Monck calling Diltz and saying “Henry, we’re gonna have a big show. You should come down.”

Whether it’s Keith Richards with a bottle of Jack at the airport; Joni Mitchell, David Crosby and Eric

Clapton in a Laurel Canyon song circle; Jackson Browne perched barefoot in the driver’s seat of a Chevy Bel Air; or Janis Joplin dancing at Woodstock, Diltz’s photos captured an era in rock with the same sense of artistic adventure and earthy naturalism as the music. Certainly, without Diltz’s presence as part of the Laurel Canyon tribe, one of the most fertile periods of music in Los Angeles wouldn’t be nearly as richly documented.

Later, Diltz would help his contemporary rock photographers get the respect, acknowledgment and compensation that was likely scarce in their most prominent years by co-founding the Morrison Hotel Gallery, which represents the work of dozens of photographers with fine-art prints. His work has been featured in numerous books, he’s a sought-after commentator on the music scene of the ’60s and ’70s, and his photos remain in demand by those who continue to tell the stories of a golden era in rock.

Through its annual convention and the topical conferences it hosts around the world, AES has brought together generations of audio professionals to share knowledge and network with their industry peers and mentors. By creating this platform for connection, AES has fostered innumerable relationships and helped facilitate technological advancements in audio.

Most legacies are difficult to quantify — regardless of how important they may be — simply because they’re only vital to a small group of people. Fewer have impacted humanity on a broader scale. And fewer still can lay claim to altering how we perceive the world around us.

It’s easy to appreciate why the Audio Engineering Society belongs to the latter group.

Founded in 1948 by an astute cadre of audio professionals, AES has shepherded the industry from the nascent beginnings of multitrack recording through the advent and maturation of digital audio creation and reproduction. In doing so, the organization has fully expressed its mission “to promote the science and practice of audio by bringing leading people and ideas together.”

The power of music and sound are universal, and for most, an

innately human experience. As an organization of professionals aligned by their love of audio, AES has helped countless people understand and enjoy that experience. Its membership includes 12,000-plus people working in the audio and aligned industries, all tasked with enhancing our perception of sound in different ways.

By establishing the AES Standards Committee in 1977, the society standardized the format for digital audio recording and reproduction, including standards for sampling frequency and synchronization that are still in use today. The committee’s working group now includes 1,200 members covering the fields of digital audio, acoustics, interconnections, and metadata for audio.

AES publishes its findings and papers 10 times a year in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, a peer-reviewed periodical devoted to audio technology, which serves to

But the organization’s members are also caretakers of this long legacy of knowledge. To date, AES staff have curated hundreds of oral histories from its members, as well as covered a wealth of topics through its AES Live: Videos series, including acoustics, audio for cinema and theater, audio over IP, broadcast, electronic instrument design, live sound, networked audio, signal processing, and much more.

As ever, the organization is also focused on the future of audio, its applications and its practitioners. Through the AES Educational Foundation, the organization has awarded hundreds of grants to graduate students to further their educations and foster career development.

As new areas emerge — such as podcasting and content creation, machine learning and artificial intelligence, gaming audio, and immersive and spatial audio — AES continues to represent the music, sound and audio industries with thought leadership, technology development and the standards that ensure the magic of music continues for future generations.

TECHNICAL GRAMMY AWARD DR. ANDY HILDEBRAND

and undetectable pitch correction, made it an instant studio essential.

At first, Auto-Tune was a closely held studio secret, employed to discreetly polish vocal tracks. But everything changed in 1998 when Cher’s blockbuster hit “Believe,” with its deliberately unsubtle pitch-processing effect, brought the “Auto-Tune sound” into the public consciousness — the singer’s glitchy vocal glides showcasing the technology’s capability as a creative tool with vast potential. For the first time since the vocoder, a studio effect was defining a new vocal sound. Fans loved it, and artists in every genre started asking engineers for the “Cher effect.”

When Dr. Andy Hildebrand invented Auto-Tune pitch correction technology 25 years ago, he helped to redefine the sound of modern music in ways that even he couldn’t have imagined. Auto-Tune has grown from a corrective device into a creative effect that has evolved with the decades — one that, for many, signals the sound of contemporary pop.

The tool that transformed the vocal production landscape emerged from unlikely beginnings: seismic science. In the late ’80s, Hildebrand, a geophysical engineer and mathematician, left a lucrative career pioneering 3-D seismic-mapping technologies in the oil industry to go to music school. At Rice University, the accomplished flautist focused on composing with synthesizers, but grew dissatisfied with the unnatural sounds of digitized instruments. So, he began writing his own audio-

processing algorithms, applying digital signal processing technology he developed in the geophysical industry.

Hildebrand was on to something, and he knew it. In 1990 he founded Jupiter Systems — which would become Antares Audio Technologies — to develop his own instrumentsampling software.

Hildebrand had another breakthrough five years later. Lunching with friends at a NAMM conference, always eager for a challenge, he posed a halfserious question: “What needs to be invented?” One woman joked, “Why don’t you make a box that lets me sing in tune?” An idea took root.

He realized he could apply his sound-based geophysical algorithms to pitch processing, and in the spring of 1997, Antares released the first version of Auto-Tune. News of the groundbreaking technology spread through the music industry like wildfire. Auto-Tune’s efficiency, ease of use, and most importantly, its natural

Over the next decade, the use of Auto-Tune rocketed. It would shape the bold new sounds of landmark albums, from Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, which spawned the robo-disco smash “One More Time,” to Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III. The unmistakable “T-Pain effect” became synonymous with modern hip-hop. Auto-Tune, coupled with the creativity of visionary artists, blazed the way for new rap and hip-hop sounds that would be exponentially replicated and reconfigured in a constellation of musical styles.

Ever since Andy Hildebrand’s imagination brought us Auto-Tune, what was once behind-the-scenes is now center stage, with artists as diverse as Post Malone, Radiohead and Lady Gaga tapping Auto-Tune technology to sculpt their vocal sounds, both live and in the studio.

“Dr. Andy” left the industry long ago, but his impact endures. Few technology inventions have shaped the musical zeitgeist so profoundly. Like the electric guitar, the multitrack recorder, and the sampler, Auto-Tune and the work of Andy Hildebrand are forever imprinted on the way people make and enjoy music.

MUSIC EDUCATOR AWARD PAMELA DAWSON

mouth, we’re not just hearing. We can see the music in front of us, and we’re reading it and we hear it, but can you literally feel it?”

Kinesthetic movement is key to Dawson’s teaching methods. She encourages her students to channel their energy and passions into their singing, and to move in ways that help express their voices. These movements also help establish timing and rhythm, and Dawson notes a meditative quality to the movements that is heightened by the hand instruments they use.

“I’m used to the harp being on the entire body with the sound waves going into the body and to the central nervous system,” she says. “There’s a healing and a calming process that happens with the harp. Handbells and hand chimes have that same pure tone and actually help calm the spirit.”

For 15 years, Dawson has taught varsity chorus, handbells and piano at the Dallas-area city’s high school, while also overseeing the choral programs at the district’s middle schools to ensure the students are on track to perform at the high school level.

Dawson grew up in Detroit surrounded by a musical family. When her father put her on piano at age 7, she had already been playing harp for two years thanks to instruction from her godsister, the late jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby. In high school, she played clarinet in the school band, and majored in voice with a harp minor in college.

Although music had a large presence in her life, Dawson never planned to teach. She had an administrative job in the private sector she enjoyed when a friend asked her to help with a choral class. The first time she stood in front of the class, she knew she had found her calling. “I walked in the first day and said, ‘Oh my God, what have I been doing all my life? I’ve been in the wrong career.’ And I fell in love with teaching choral music.”

For Pamela Dawson, the recipient of the 2023 Music Educator Award, making music isn’t just about creating sound waves — it’s about how the movements a person makes can affect the sounds they create. As director of choral music at DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas, she uses kinesthesia to help her students find their own voices.

“With choral music, it’s all about interpretation,” Dawson says. “What does each word mean? What does each note mean? We use the whole body; we’re not just using our

Dawson has worked extensively with the Texas Music Educators Association and has served as chair of the DeSoto Arts Commission, where she helped organize music festivals and events that have often included her students. In 2022, she was inducted into the DeSoto Independent School District Hall of Honor.

Dawson’s students have gone on to study music at prestigious schools such as Berklee College of Music, and to successful careers in music in Broadway productions. But her true success as a teacher, she says, is helping students discover the music inside of them — and discovering ways to incorporate it into their lives and careers.

“Music is a passion,” she says. “If you have music, you can’t run away from it. You can’t hide.”

I SECOND THAT EMOTION

HOW BERRY GORDY AND SMOKEY ROBINSON CAME TOGETHER TO CREATE MUSIC MAGIC AND CEMENT

THEIR PLACES AS 2023 MUSICARES® PERSONS OF THE YEAR

I t’s virtually impossible to imagine a world without Motown Records. None of their sweet soul music blasting from car windows and storefronts. No Supremes or Temptations or Stevie Wonder providing the rhythms for TV and film. No Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it On,” or Martha and the Vandellas’ “Dancing in the Street,” or Smokey Robinson and the Miracles’ “Tracks of My Tears.” What kind of world would that be?

For Motown’s existence, boom and continued success, one indomitable, canny visionary can take the lion’s share of credit: Berry Gordy, who founded the Detroit label back in 1959. Equally as influential to Motown’s legacy is Smokey Robinson — Gordy’s creative and business partner, and best friend of more than 65 years.

Both loom so large in music, and their stories are so intertwined, that picking just one as the MusiCares Person Of The Year — an honor previously bestowed on Joni Mitchell, Quincy Jones, Aerosmith, and other luminaries — would be a half-measure. For the first time, MusiCares has expanded the honor to include two Persons Of The Year of equal and parallel esteem.

Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson fulfill the Person Of The Year dictum to a tee: Together and apart, their creative accomplishments and philanthropic work have few equivalents. And prior to the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards, which occur Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, MusiCares will throw a gala to remember, to celebrate the two men while raising funds toward the music charity’s programs and services that assist the music community all year long.

“I am grateful to be included in MusiCares’ remarkable history of music icons. The work they do is so critical to the well-being of our music community, and I look forward to a most exciting evening,” Gordy said in a statement. Added Robinson: “I am honored that they have chosen me and my best friend and Motown founder Berry Gordy to share this beautiful honor and celebrate with you all together.”

Motown has influenced all sorts of music and inspired generations of artists throughout the decades, and Robinson’s unforgettable recordings, like “Shop Around,” “I Second That Emotion” and “Mickey’s Monkey,” are forever beloved. Not only

138 THE 65 TH GRAMMYs

via Robinson’s pipes, but those who interpreted material he wrote or co-wrote, like Marvin Gaye (“I’ll Be Doggone” and “Ain’t That Peculiar”), the Temptations (“My Girl”), Mary Wells (“The One Who Really Loves You”), the Marvelettes (“You’re My Remedy”), and the Jackson 5 (“Who’s Loving You”). Not to mention the Beatles, who were deeply influenced by Robinson and covered “You Really Got a Hold On Me” on 1963’s With the Beatles (George Harrison included a tribute to Robinson, “Pure Smokey,” on his 1975 solo album Extra Texture (Read All About It); Paul McCartney once remembered, “Smokey Robinson was like God in our eyes.”)

If Gordy and Robinson represent the divine to some, Genesis 1:1 was their meeting in the summer of 1957. Gordy — a high-school dropout, ex-boxer and Korean War veteran who quit his job at Ford to pursue songwriting — discovered Robinson by way of his vocal harmony group, the Matadors, which featured Robinson’s then-wife, Claudette.

An enamored Gordy took the group under his wing, renaming them the Miracles and highlighting Robinson as the leader; he produced their first single, “Got a Job,” an answer song to the Silhouettes’ hit single, “Get a Job.” Eventually, on a drive from Detroit to Flint, Michigan, Robinson convinced Gordy to seriously ponder starting his own label.

In 1959, Gordy did just that. He founded Tamla Records with an $800 loan from his family, along with a publishing arm, Jobette, and the rest is history. Robinson not only became Gordy’s first writer and debut Motown signee, but, in 1962, he rose to become Motown’s vice president. In 1972, Robinson left the Miracles to pursue a solo career, but their brotherhood remained ironclad.

Motown hasn’t just gifted the world with an ocean of spectacular music; as one of the most successful, Black-owned businesses in American history, it lit a beacon for Black leadership and innovation forevermore. And it wouldn’t be the same without Robinson’s vision and artistry, and how it synergized with Gordy’s to change the face of music and American culture.

And that’s why Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson aren’t just Persons Of The Year. They’re trailblazers whose legacies have — and forever will — stand the test of time.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF HIP-HOP AT 50

2023 MARKS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIP-HOP — THE MOST POPULAR GENRE OF MUSIC TODAY AND ONE WITH INCREDIBLE GLOBAL APPEAL.

THE RECORDING ACADEMY HONORS THE LEGACY AND INFLUENCE OF HIP-HOP IN A DYNAMIC TIMELINE MARKING THE GENRE’S BIGGEST MOMENTS.

his year will be the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, a cultural movement that rose from humble beginnings in New York to fuel a worldwide phenomenon. Scholars may debate whether its roots precede Aug. 11, 1973, when

DJ Kool Herc debuted his “merrygo-round” technique of playing funk breaks back to back to a roomful of teenagers in the Bronx, New York.

However, there’s little doubt that this event sparked a flowering of activity throughout the borough, inspiring DJs, breakdancers, graffiti artists, and, eventually, pioneering MCs like Coke La Rock and Cowboy.

The music industry eventually caught wind of the scene, leading to formative

1979 singles like the Fatback Band’s “King Tim III” — the funk band featured MC and hypeman Timothy “King Tim III” Washington — and the big one: the Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight.”

Today, rap music is the most popular genre of music, led by superstars such as Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Future, Eminem, and many others. Despite its massive success, many artists retain their strong ties to communities of color, reflecting the genre’s origins as a form rooted in the streets.

Here, we break down a brief history of hip-hop’s biggest moments throughout the decades. And make sure to tune into the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards to catch a special celebration honoring the genre that changed the world.

THE RECORDING ACADEMY: A CHAMPION FOR CREATORS

In 1957, inspiration struck a group of dedicated leaders in music. What if there was an organization with the goal of advocating for and celebrating the artistry of musicians, producers, songwriters, engineers, and all other industry professionals?

These leaders dreamed of an elite organization consisting of the best music has to offer. The end result of their aspirations is the Recording Academy.

Fast-forward to 2023: The Academy continues its mission of championing creators’ rights in Washington, D.C., sponsoring preservation initiatives and music education, helping music people in need, representing thousands of Academy members across the country, and recognizing artistic excellence with the annual GRAMMY Awards – the industry’s only peerrecognized accolade and music’s highest honor. While our core missions may stay the same, the Academy saw several internal changes in the past year. We added names to our executive leadership and elected 19 new National Trustees. Ever evolving, we aim to constantly update our policies to reflect the changing nature of the music industry. This year, we added five new GRAMMY Award Categories as well as the highly anticipated Best Song For Social Change, a Special Merit Award. We also continued our goal of further diversifying our membership body. Of the nearly 2,000 newest Recording Academy members, who officially joined in 2022, 44% are from traditionally underrepresented communities; 47% are under the age of 40; 32% are women; and 52% are male; the remaining 16% are composed of individuals who identify as nonbinary and those who opted not to disclose. The Recording Academy has added 1,913 women to its Voting Membership since 2019 and is now 77% of the way to reaching its goal of adding 2,500 women Voting Members by 2025. The Academy will always push to move forward as an organization and strive to drive positive change in the music industry at-large.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

The Recording Academy has set out to become the most inclusive organization in the music industry — and the world. We’ve made huge progress toward achieving this goal in the past three years, with a particular focus on accelerating and measuring advancement for underrepresented communities and creators. Our mission, accelerated via the multiple programs and initiatives listed below, is to facilitate equitable outcomes for all while proudly representing our diverse music community.

Representation

Last year, we successfully launched a key initiative. Our Inclusion Rider for the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, held in April 2022, was the first of its kind for a major music awards show; 39% of the production staff and crew hired were women and 24% were BIPOC. We continued our partnership with GLAAD to advance LGBTQIA+ representation in the industry and ensure this community is valued and respected in our field.

Women In The Mix®

We published our second Women In The Mix Study, shining a light on the experiences of women and gender-diverse music professionals in the U.S. We also invested in women’s music organizations for the second year running to further our commitment to this cause. Our membership body continues to evolve as well, as it becomes more diverse and starts to better reflect our music community.

Black Music Collective Scholarships

Lastly, we invested in the next generation of music professionals via our various scholarship programs. The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective continued our Your Future Is Now Scholarship in collaboration with Amazon Music for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and launched the Quinn Coleman Memorial Scholarship, in partnership with the GRAMMY Museum, for college-attending Black and Brown emerging creatives. Looking to the future, the Academy will continue to advocate for increased accessibility, representation and equity across the music industry. Let’s Be The Change We Want To See Help us create a more inclusive and equitable future in music. Learn how to get involved at RecordingAcademy.com/Inclusion.

ADVOCACY & PUBLIC POLICY

The Advocacy & Public Policy department fights for creators’ rights year-round and works tirelessly to keep music makers, fans and policy makers informed and passionate about our causes.

In 2022, we celebrated a win in California with the passage of the Decriminalizing Artistic Expression Act – a tremendous achievement for both the First Amendment and protecting creative expression. Looking forward, we aim to achieve similar success in other states and at the federal level. Other key issues include supporting the bipartisan American Music Fairness Act, which would close a century-old loophole that enables Big Radio to play songs without fairly compensating artists. We also spent the year fighting for passage of the bipartisan and bicameral Help Independent Tracks Succeed (HITS) Act, which offers independent artists a new tax incentive to create new music. Lastly, we believe in the power of music, and that’s why we as a team urged Congress to pass the PEACE Through Music Diplomacy Act, which empowers the State Department to put music on a global stage and use it as a bridge-building tool between nations.

Learn more about our other key initiatives and annual campaigns.

District Advocate Day

On District Advocate Day, thousands of Recording Academy members visit their congressional representatives in local district offices and via virtual meetings to discuss significant issues impacting the music community – making this the single largest nationwide grassroots lobbying campaign for music and its creators.

MusiCares was founded by the Recording Academy in 1989 as an independent public charity to serve the health and human services needs of the music community through financial assistance, access to no- or low-cost health care services, and informational workshops and panels.

Mental Health & Addiction Recovery

As the only organization providing substantial financial assistance for in-patient addiction treatment for music professionals, MusiCares is at the forefront in addressing mental health and addiction needs. MusiCares delivers services such as assistance for inpatient and outpatient treatments, free nationwide recovery and mental health support groups, psychotherapy referrals, and sober-safe spaces at events.

MusiCares also distributes and trains on the use of naloxone, a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdoses, so the music community is empowered to help save lives.

Health Services

This year, MusiCares provided Healthy Essentials preventative services, such as medical and dental screenings, hearing clinics, and health and wellness workshops, to 5,700 music professionals. Through an innovative partnership with Tuned, MusiCares is offering hearing diagnostic and treatment services through virtual sessions with world-leading audiologists. With Tuned, MusiCares is making essential hearing health services available to music professionals, where and when they need it.

Human Services

MusiCares provides financial assistance for basic living needs, including housing, insurance premiums, lost and damaged equipment, and funeral expenses. This year, the median grant amount for each client was $1,837. Through our disaster relief efforts, MusiCares provided crisis response support to music professionals affected by natural disasters.

Persons of the Year

For the first time ever, MusiCares’ annual Person of the Year benefit gala will honor two greats while celebrating the legacy of Motown – honoring Motown founder, GRAMMY® Award nominee, Recording Academy® President’s Merit Award honoree, and recipient of the GRAMMY Museum’s Architect of Sound®: Vision Award Berry Gordy and GRAMMY Award winner, Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and GRAMMY Legend Award recipient Smokey Robinson. Proceeds from the event, which celebrates the philanthropic

spirit and musical excellence of the honorees, will provide essential support for MusiCares.

GRAMMY MUSEUM

The GRAMMY Museum is a philanthropic music nonprofit and learning institution, aiming to celebrate and explore the music we love via interactive exhibitions and dynamic programming.

Exhibitions

Since opening in downtown Los Angeles in 2008, the Museum offers in-person permanent and temporary exhibit galleries highlighting the achievements of the world’s leading artists and music professionals.

Public Programs & Events

All year long, we offer special public programs, which include live performances, panels, film screenings, and fireside chats with music’s newcomers and living legends. The GRAMMY Museum also proudly launched programming in New York last year. You can view many Museum programs on the Museum’s official streaming service, COLLECTION:live™.

Music Education

Part of the Museum’s mission is to inspire and educate the next generation of music professionals, which is why we deliver multidisciplinary music programs to students, schools and communities in need. We offer programs like GRAMMY Camp®, which prepares high school students for a career in music. Each year during GRAMMY Week, the Museum partners with the Recording Academy to give out the Music Educator Award, which recognizes exemplary instructors who utilize music in the classroom. Last year, we launched the firstever Campaign For Music Education with the goal of raising money for our educational endowment and programs. The funds raised go toward providing free admission to the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles for all students and expanding access to our music education programs around the country. The Campaign is co-chaired by some of today’s hottest stars, including Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, and Rosalía.

THE LATIN RECORDING ACADEMY®

Established as the global authority on Latin music, The Latin Recording Academy is dedicated to nurturing, celebrating, honoring, and elevating Latin music and its creators. We spearhead our multifaceted mission across several arms and initiatives.

Membership

The Latin Academy serves as a home base for a variety of music professionals— including musicians, producers, songwriters, and engineers—who specialize in Latin genres. Latin Academy members hail from approximately 43 different countries around the world.

Honoring Excellence

An important part of our mission is celebrating excellence in the recording arts and sciences. We hold numerous marquee events throughout the year, including the annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®. We also honor the achievements of Ibero-American musicians with our Person of the Year Gala, and celebrate legendary artists who have made their mark in the industry with the Lifetime Achievement and Trustees Awards.

The Biggest Night in Latin Music®, the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®, were held in Las Vegas last November, and featured visually stunning performances from Rosalía, Christina Aguilera, Marco Antonio Solís, Rauw Alejandro, Gente de Zona, Aymée Nuviola, Sebastián Yatra and Ángela Aguilar, along with past Latin GRAMMY

winner Goyo and GRAMMY-nominated group, Los Bukis, among many others. The show reminisced about Latin music’s past, while also celebrating its present, and paying it forward to the next generation of music creators.

Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation® The Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation promotes awareness and appreciation of the impact that Latin music has had on the world’s culture. We have donated more than $7.6 million in grants, scholarships, educational programs, and music instruments across Ibero-America and the United States.
