While the rest of the internet freaks out (positively and negatively) about the Arcade Fire winning Album of the Year, we here at Sound on the Sound are much more excited about a local, deserving Grammy winner: Kory Kruckenberg.
Kory, who we best know as a local sound engineer extraordinaire, is responsible and mentioned by name in more than a few of our best of lists, as well as being the bassist for Pablo Trucker and Pickwick’s vibraphone master. As of last night, he can add “Grammy Winner” to his resume; as Kory took home the trophy in “Best Engineered Album, Classical.” While we haven’t heard his Grammy Award winning work, we’ve long been fans of Kory’s adept hands and ears which have been behind some of our favorite recent local records including: The Maldives’ Listen to the Thunder, Avians Alight, Pickwick, J. Tillman and Pearly Gate Music. Congratulations Kory!
