GRAMMY Camper Wins!
Listening to hundreds of demo songs was a wonderful experience for me as I prepared to launch the first GRAMMY Camp in 2005. Anyone who has done this type of previewing relies on a criteria to vet and honor each submission, but also move through a tremendous amount of material to distill down to the best entries.
One young, future artist stood out to me above all others - and that was -
Her singing, exceptional songwriting abilities with engaging and thoughtful storytelling, were all amazing. I was honored to have worked with her and ever grateful that she set the highest standard for the GRAMMY Camp Singer-Songwriter Career Track for years to come.
Thrilling to see her interviewed on the CBS Sunday Morning Show, as the featured musical guest on Saturday Night Live and so many other recent honors. Career -- Skyrocketing!
Persistence and perseverance are essential to any career - especially one in the music industry. That arc was over a decade in the making. Gratifying to see this skilled musician honored with four GRAMMY Award nominations this year. Congratulations Maren.
When you hear that powerful voice and listen to her songwriting - you just know.
