Sep 30 , 2016 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 8:00PM
The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to present an intimate evening with 16-time GRAMMY Award-winning music legend Paul Simon. The evening, moderated by GRAMMY telecast and EMMY Award-nominated writer David Wild, will feature a discussion surrounding Simon's recently released 13th solo album, Stranger to Stranger (Concord Records). Produced by Simon and his longtime musical partner Roy Halee, the album's innovative textures and thrilling beats provide an extraordinary new context for Simon's well-established genius as a singer and songwriter. Following its June 3rd release, in the midst of Simon's sold-out, nationwide tour; Stranger to Stranger entered the Billboard charts at #3 in the U.S. and #1 in the U.K., the highest chart debuts of Simon's illustrious career. Similarly, Stranger to Stranger generated resounding accolades from critics both here and around the globe. The Los Angeles Times called the album "exquisite" adding, "This is pop music at its most artful and relevant." The New York Times said, "Stranger to Stranger is a set of songs that crack jokes and ponder questions about love, death, spirituality, baseball, economic inequality, brain chemistry and music itself. It's the latest ambitious, tuneful installment in…an exceptionally long career." As fresh, progressive and relevant as any album you will hear this year, Stranger to Stranger is a masterwork of ageless imagination, a captivating artistic achievement that surely stands among 2016's finest and most essential new recordings. Proceeds from this special program will benefit the music education initiatives of the GRAMMY Museum.
Tune in to the live stream tonight at 8:00 p.m. PT at YouTube.com/GRAMMYPro.
