Roomful of Teeth is pleased to announce that our sophomore album, Render, has been nominated for a 2016 GRAMMY Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.
We're supremely honored to be nominated for a second time and we could not have been able to do it without our wonderfully talented team of composers, engineers, producers, musicians, fans, friends, families and supporters. It means so much to have your love and energy. We hope you'll keep it coming through the award ceremony on Monday, February 15.
"Claudia Rankine’s seminal book, Don’t Let Me Be Lonely, inspires another Ojai commission, a new vocal work by Caroline Shaw. Intensely personal, under the skin states of emotion, memory, and hope emerge in Caroline Shaw’s body of work as well as in her body – Caroline Shaw’s music is drawn from her voice, from her throat, from her heart, her pulse, and her blood. Her new work will once again be composed for the ensemble Roomful of Teeth who will also be reprising her Pulitzer Prize winning Partita for 8 Voices for Ojai."
