Jaycen Joshua and Steven Ellison (Flying Lotus) Take Home Grammys

We are proud of our talented alumni from The Los Angeles Recording School, a division of The L.A. Film School for their GRAMMY® wins. Jaycen Joshua (LARS 2003) won Best Engineered Album for Beck’s Hyperspace. Jaycen also contributed to GRAMMY-winner Megan Thee Stallion who won for Best New Rap Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song (Savage). Steven Ellison (Film 2003) produced Thundercat’s fourth studio album It Is What It Is, which won Best Progressive R&B Album. Entertainment Business alumnus Chase Thomas was a theatrical producer on GRAMMY-winning Musical Jagged Little Pill. Alumni Jhair Lazo and Julio Ulloa worked on Anderson .Paak’s Lockdown, winner of Best Melodic Rap Album.

Congratulations to our GRAMMY-winning alumni who contributed their creative expertise in mixing, producing and engineering.

The recording industry’s biggest night felt more intimate than in previous years. Trevor Noah opened the 63rd GRAMMY Awards on stage facing a handful of guests seated at socially-distanced tables. Grammy-nominated artists were the only people in the audience on Sunday. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion performed the record-shattering song WAP, Taylor Swift sang barefoot on stage in an enchanted forest, and the Recording Academy paid tribute to the artists who lost their lives this past year. John Prine and Kenny Rogers were among the legendary musicians that the Recording Academy honored at the 63rd Grammy Awards.

Even on the days you feel like quitting, don’t quit – Megan Thee Stallion
