The Drop: Mary Lambert

The GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum singer, songwriter, author, and activist Mary Lambert for an intimate conversation with Scott Goldman, discussing her upcoming second full-length album, Grief Creature, set for release on November 15. Following the conversation, Lambert will perform. Mary Lambert has touched lives around the world and made history along the way. On the heels of her 2012 independent debut EP Letters Don’t Talk, she joined forces with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on the triple-platinum “Same Love.” It garnered two GRAMMY Award nominations and won an MTV VMA. At the GRAMMY telecast, she engaged in a historic performance alongside the duo and Madonna as Queen Latifah married 33 same-sex couples. In between three years of touring, she continued at a prolific pace with the Welcome To The Age of My Body EP, Heart on My Sleeve full-length, and gold-selling single “Secrets,” which ascended to #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart. On her new album Grief Creature, Mary self-produced 16 of the album’s 17 tracks, which included composing string quartets, programming drums, and even engineering a track herself. Drawing on a breakup, a house fire, a major bipolar episode, and “lots and lots of therapy,” she built this out of five years through 20 different incarnations and arrived at a definitive collection. As a result, the album showcases her most personal, poetic, and poignant songs to date.
