Grammys to partner with Berklee, ASU for study on women in the music industry

"The Grammys say they're teaming up with Arizona State University and the Berklee College of Music in Boston for a study. Looking at women's involvement in the music industry is Kcrw's Terry Glacier reports. The announcement coincides with International Women's Day and comes a week before this Sunday's Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy's taking some heat in recent years for nominating and honoring more men than women for Grammys, and that's the case yet again this year. The academy reports that out of the 853 nominees who are up for awards less than a quarter, 23% identify his women. Part of that is because the Grammys honor not just performers, but also technical jobs like producers and engineers, which are predominantly held by men in 2019, the recording academy kicked off in an initiative called Women in the Mix. Encouraging musicians and record labels to consider at least two female candidates every time they hire producer engineer the academy says progress is slow going so the goal. The new study is to get a baseline on women's involvement in the music business and helped develop the next generation of women in the industry.

"I have ready help filling in for the team here on this Christmas Eve. Couple of you are having a great start to your Christmas holiday. Right now. We're gonna recap the year in music for 2020 and joining me to do that is music reporter for insider Callie Algorithm and Kelly. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us about this. What I want to do is I want to go back. To January of this year. What was the outlook like for the music industry? Then was it said to be a good year for music just average? What was that out look like pre pandemic. Definitely itwas looking to be a pretty huge year, especially for pop music early in the year. You had some major releases. Selena Gomez, Hold me. We already knew that Lady Gaga. I was gonna put out an album this here they come back the house music and big pop sounds. And Billy Eyeless was embarking on her for world tour. So you know this definitely was shaping up to be a pretty massive year, especially for pop stars. And, of course, the sooner the pandemic hit. We had a lot of delays. We have a lot of people pushing back there releases because they thought it wasn't going to be a long term as it has been. And of course, all of the tour's got suspended most of them whole year on this, even looking now, like they might have to get the Sunday before, But yeah, a lot of Ah lot of major artists were looking for huge album rollout. You know the kind of classic single single album, Big Tour album or less that we've seen in the past? But of course, a lot of them had to re evaluate as as the time went on. Let's talk about the touring aspect, because obviously, fans love it. And I'm sure so many were disappointed that they didn't get to see their favorite artist this year. But that really is where a lot of these artists that's where they make their money these days, right? Definitely, yes, especially with smaller, earnest they you know streaming is Negligible in terms of payout for artists who aren't already very huge. So tours and merch sales are merchandise sales are fact it for our guests, especially smaller kind of indie artist or fan. That much. That was a huge a huge blow to the music industry this year, and I'm sure the recording Academy is looking to kind of recoup. A lot of their lost sales was when the Grammys come back around and one score start, hopefully back up in the summer, but For especially for Indian venues for smaller stages, You know on all fronts. This has been a very difficult year for people who make money through music. And sometimes we just focus on the artist and the money they make and their role in the tours. But these tours they employ Ah lot of people, especially behind the scenes, absolutely. Stagehands, roadies lighting director's creative directors. So many people out of Out of Pentonville work this year we've seen in the second half of the year, um, with creative directors, especially and bigger artists trying Tonto get back in front of their fans in a meaningful way with With virtual shows We not do a leaf adjusted a massive show called Studio 2054, where that crossed reportedly over over a million dollars to put on and sold virtual tickets. But you know, you've also had creative director saying that it's quite thrilling to be confronted with this new challenge for award shows for remote performances. You know when you have Ah, your show on a stage in a venue that that poses some significant spatial and time challenges. But when you're performing remotely and broadcasting into an award show or AH, or, um, a sort of virtual concert for your fans, Ah, lot of those restrictions go away and you can have Pyrotechnics and you can have a major said if that don't that you don't need to break down in five minutes and such things like that. I'm joined by Callie Album Music reporter for Insider re Camping the year and music for 2020. Some artist did start releasing albums throughout the year and that became a big thing because people are home. It's been a very difficult years, so I think we're all grasping onto whatever we can to take our minds off of all of this. What were some of the big releases? Took place throughout the past year. Great question and definitely true. I think that music releases have become a very communal thing for people this year, because you know we can't go to movies. We can't go to our friend's house and watch the bachelor. You know, we're just kind of fit all that in our home. Inner feeling. So the biggest album releases that definitely comes to my head are Calista two albums, folklore and ever more. You know, she completely throughout her typical rollout strategy this year, which I think ended up being very smart. She was able to make music and this is true. I'm sure for a lot of other artists, but I think it except she exemplifies that the most was able to make music without worrying about what is a radio hits on like, what will this sound like in a stadium? What will this sound like? Um if I'm opening an award show with this number, you know, And so it ended up being some of the most interesting production George she's ever made some very intimate song writing and storytelling. And we saw that that really paid off for her in a major way. Folklore was the longest charting album on the billboard Hot 100 Silver 200 Excuse me this year with 89 consecutive weeks. Hi selling album even without album bundles with vinyls and CDs and stuff like that, and then you know, she turns around five months later and release his upper floor, which is the sister record. Askew described it, and a lot of the same kind of Storytelling, intimate music making, but again a huge hit. She's on top of the billboard 200 this week and the billboard hot 100 with the least single willow so we can see that the The adjustments that some big artisans had to made have actually paid off for them in some ways, But then on the other foot started that, you know. These bigger artists who who are doing those adjustments. They don't really indeed the sort of like music sort of money that other artists of lost this year so it really touched 22. Can we talk about Taylor Swift for a moment? Because when I was in Chicago, I went to one of her concerts and I went backstage and I was talking to her mom and they were showing me the whole set up and how they put these shows on how they put these tours on, and Taylor was explaining some of how all of this works and I don't know if people realize that's one of the most buttoned up operations. I think in all of entertainment in all of music, everything has a purpose, and everything is specifically designed for a certain reason. She really is at the top of the game when it comes to the music industry, right, absolutely out, too. Go to your point with tourism concerts..

Our killer stuff, two albums, folklore and ever more. You know, she Completely throughout her typical rollout strategy this year, which I think ended up being very smart. She was able to make music and this is true. I'm sure for a lot of other artists, but I think it except she exemplifies that the most Was able to make music without worrying about what is a radio hit down. Like what will this sound like in a stadium? What will this sound like? If I'm opening an award show with this number, you know, And so it ended up being some of the most interesting production George she's ever made some very intimate song writing and storytelling, and we saw that that really paid off for her in a major way so clear with the longest charting album on the billboard Hot 100 of Silver 200. Excuse me. This year with eight nonconsecutive weeks, high selling album even without album bundles with vinyls and CDs and stuff like that, and then you know, she turns around five months later and releases evermore, which is Sister record at. She described it a lot of the same kind of storytelling, intimate music making, but again, a huge hit. She's on top of the billboard 200 this week and the billboard hot 100 with the least single willow so we can see that the adjustments that some big artisans had 2 may have actually paid off for them in some ways. But then on the other foot side of that, you know These bigger artists who who are doing those adjustments. They don't really indeed the sort of like music sort of money that other artists of lost this year so it really touched 22. Can we talk about Taylor Swift for a moment? Because when I was in Chicago, I went to one of her concerts and I went backstage and I was talking to her mom and they were showing me the whole set up and how they put these shows on how they put these tours on, and Taylor was explaining some of how all of this works and I don't know if people realize that's one of the most buttoned up operations. I think in all of entertainment in all of music, everything has a purpose, and everything is specifically designed for a certain reason. She really is at the top of the game when it comes to the music industry, right. Absolutely out Good, too. Go to your point with tourism concerts. You know, she has said Before that she touches everything that that hurt for put out. She has the final say on all those creative direction and The office.

"Of all of you are having a great start to your Christmas holiday. Right now. We're gonna recap the year in music for 2020 and joining me to do that is music reporter for insider Callie Algorithm and Kelly. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us about this. What I want to do is I want to go back. To January of this year. What was the outlook like for the music industry? Then was it said to be a good year for music just average? What was that out look like pre pandemic. Definitely It was looking to be a pretty huge year, especially for pop music early in the year. You had some major releases. Selena Gomez, Hold the We already knew that Lady Gaga. I was gonna put out an album this here they come back the house music and big pop sounds. And Billy Eyeless was embarking on her for world tour. So you know this definitely was shaping up to be a pretty massive year, especially for pop stars. And, of course, the sooner the pandemic hit. We had a lot of delays. We have a lot of people pushing back there releases because they thought it wasn't going to be a long term as it has been. And of course, all of the tour's got suspended most of them whole year on this, even looking now, like they might have to get the Sunday before, But yeah, a lot of Ah lot of major artists were looking for huge album rollout. You know the kind of classic single single album, Big Tour album or last that we've seen in the past, But of course, a lot of them had to re evaluate as as the time went on. Let's talk about the touring aspect, because obviously, fans love it, And I'm sure so many were disappointed that they didn't get to see their favorite artist this year. But that really is where a lot of these artists that's where they make their money these days, right? Definitely yes, especially with smaller artists they streaming is negligible in terms of payout for artists who aren't already very huge, so Whores and merch sales are merchandise sales are factors for organs, especially smaller kind of indie artist or fans. That must. That was a huge a huge blow to the music industry this year, and I'm sure the recording academy is looking to Kind of recoup a lot of their lost sales when the Grammys come back around and what course are hopefully back up in the summer, But I'm for especially for Indians venues for smaller stages. You know on all fronts. This has been a very difficult year for people who make money through music, and sometimes we just focus on the artist and the money they make and their role in the tours. But these tours they employ Ah lot of people, especially behind the scenes, absolutely. Stagehands, roadies lighting director's creative directors. So many people out of Out of tangible work this year we've seen in the second half of the year, Um, with creative directors, especially and bigger artists trying Tonto get back in front of their fans in a meaningful way with Virtual shows We not do a leaf. I just did a massive show called Studio 2054, where that crossed reportedly over over a million dollars to put on and sold virtual tickets. But, you know, you've also had create director saying that it's quite thrilling to be confronted with this new challenge for award shows for remote performances. You know when you have Ah, your show on a stage in a venue that poses some significant spatial and time challenges. But when you're performing remotely and broadcasting into an award show or AH, or, um, a sort of virtual concert for your fans, Ah, lot of those restrictions go away and you can have Pyrotechnics, and you can have a major setup that don't that you don't need to break down in five minutes and such such things like that I'm joined by Callie Album Music reporter for Insider re camping the year and music for 2020. Some artist did start releasing albums throughout the year and that became a big thing because people are home. It's been a very difficult years, so I think we're all grasping onto whatever we can to take our minds off of all of this. What were some of the big releases? Took place throughout the past year. Great question and definitely true. I think that music releases have become a very communal thing for people this year, because you know we can't go to movies. We can't go to our friend's house and watch the bachelor. You know, we're just kind of put all that in our homes in our feelings. So the biggest album releases that definitely comes to my head, Our killer stuff, two albums, folklore and ever more. You know, she completely throughout her typical rollout strategy this year, which I think ended up being very smart. She was able to make music and this is true. I'm sure for a lot of other artists, but I think it is. She exemplifies that the most was able to make music without worrying about what is a radio hit down. Like what will this sound like in a stadium? What will this sound like? Um if I'm opening an award show with this number, you know, And so it ended up being some of the most interesting production George she's ever made some very intimate song writing and storytelling. And we saw that that really paid off for her in a major way. Folklore was the longest charting album on the billboard Hot 100 Silver 200 Excuse me this year with 89 consecutive weeks. Hi selling album even without album bundles with vinyls and CDs and stuff like that, and then you know, she turns around five months later and releases evermore, which is the sister record at she describes it, and a lot of the same kind of Retelling intimate music making, but again a huge hit. She's on top of the billboard 200 this week and the billboard hot 100 with the least single willow so we can see that the The adjustments that some big artisans had to made have actually paid off for them in some ways, But then, on the other flip side of that, you know He's bigger artists who who are doing those adjustments. They don't really indeed the sort of like music sort of money that other artists of lost this year. So it really catch 22. Can we talk about Taylor Swift for a moment? Because when I was in Chicago, I went to one of her concerts and I went backstage and I was talking to her mom and they were showing me the whole set up and how they put these shows on how they put these tours on, and Taylor was explaining some of how all of this works and I don't know if people realize that's one of the most buttoned up operations.

You know, she has said Before that she touches everything that that hurts for without she has the final say on all those creative directions and The office said recently in an interview that, um not having to worry about that stuff. Not having to worry about all that, like Creative, emotional energy that she poured into her conscious and her tour than her live appearance. Appearances has actually been able to been cord back into her music, which is maybe why. These two albums that you released it here, where the rich lyrically and production wise, Um yeah, In terms of the music industry, like if we're talking money makers and creative visionaries, I would say that she probably number one right now. I'm joined by Kelly Algren Music reporter for Insider re capping the year in music for 2020. Where there any artists that we're able to really break out this year or take their careers to the next level despite the pandemic. Oh, that's Ah, That's a good question. I think this was a big big year for Meghan, The Stallion. Of course, we know that she has ah, big year last year with her single hot for summer, and she released her BP sugar earlier this year. But I know that you know, maybe would have been.

E. O. she went on Good Morning America yesterday was talking about all of those things that were happening at the recording academy against her and so we are kind of at that point where we're like huh there's a lot going on record and can I mean what actually is going what is actually going on because it definitely is well of for lack of a better term a he said she said thing she's saying that she was trying to go in as a new CEO of the recording academy and makes a pretty prolific systemic changes in the way the recording academy operates that there might be some shady things going on in the way that they handle money in the way that they gather votes for the Grammys right those are pretty big pretty big allegation yeah I'd totally and you know what's interesting too is that these seem to be changes that were being called for yes and the reason that she was hired was to address some of these changes in the so so they had assembled a year and a half ago a task force yeah the recording academy task force on diverse city and inclusion and they'd assembled this task force who responded to the complaints that the Grammys were not very diverse so we've heard complaints about this and other awards systems yes right we've heard about that in the Oscars the Academy Awards we've heard about it in the golden globes the Emmys this is not a new awareness yeah heard about it in the recording academy itself ratings then sometimes the recording academy gives some of its highest honors to axe that would be maybe not relevant to the current year in which they are given out all right and so that has been a long standing criticism of the recording academy right so is so Dever do again what had gone in and was working with this diversity taskforce she was interviewing recording artist she was taking a lot of data in to try to make some of these are as you said prolific changes that were being called for by the members of the recording academy and the board and so she thought she was doing what was asked of her right now there's maybe some speculation that it was a little too much too quickly but here's the new news today the that the academy is task force on diversity has now released a statement and in this statement I kind of want to read between the lines of the statement it's a it's a longer statement about four paragraphs five I'll try to paraphrase it to the best of my ability but essentially what the task force says is that these these changes that they've outlined eighteen specific systemic changes that they've determined word are needed to improve the diversity and inclusion in the academy this is all laid out in a forty seven page report and they're calling for these changes as soon as humanly possible they say this needs to happen now these changes do and that seems to be in support of what Dever do can was really trying to work toward yeah interesting that you say that Colleen about this new statement that's been issued a by this task force one of the things that they say is that they want to input and I'm quoting here these new charges reinforces how important and urgent it is that the academy implement all of the changes in the report that we delivered without any delay now I want it that is that mean that is a hopeless did can they be yeah they could not say that more clearly you want this done yesterday like this should have been done right now but when I think is really interesting is they they point out five different recommendations they make eighteen full recommendations are systemic changes that they'd like to see about five recommendations that their report calls for and one of them that I would like to point out that I think is incredibly interesting but is buried in their lest changing the board of trustees election system so that the leadership of the academy will be more diverse and inclusive while the cap academy announced a partial implementation of a recommendation last month it does not go far enough so essentially what you hear them saying in this by the way is the task force of diversity and includes inclusivity that was put together for the recording academy to assess how they're being diverse and inclusive in their ward system there are literally saying the leadership is corrupt yeah the leadership is corrupt also here Colleen they're speaking to something that dubber Dugan the ex CEO of the recording academy let's just say it since that likelihood of her coming back right just a pretty pretty grounds less things go well with the reports that have been filed but she's on the bench right now here something to speaking to this talking point that the task force issued hiring an independent outside adviser to conduct a review of all policies to ensure the academy has a compliance and inclusive workplace culture now that is what a rack to that's to rack that is directly addressing what Dever Dugan was saying was one of the big problems of the recording academy was that it was so insular they were using inside attorneys they were using inside it sources to do all of their stuff that like how can we make changes right recording academy when everyone is invested on the inside out what this task force is saying like yeah we know but we need to we all we need to bring in outside people so that they can do some checks and balances on us right hello hello it is it is really interesting when you when you really set and go through again like I said it's about five paragraphs this is a statement that was issued I believe today or yesterday by the task force on diversity and inclusion about how what the changes are that they would like to see happen immediately with the recording academy and by the way we looked up the board of trade the actual board of trustees for the recording academy yeah not a lot of names it that most people would recognize Holly just from your rudimentary once over did you get the sense that it was more one gender than the other one you know it looks like the ring the board of trustees it looks like slowly they've been trying to address this issue of diversity on the border there are some old school recording industry executives on there that you wouldn't know their name but it's obvious when you Google them that they've been around the block a time or two right they have a couple of young people a couple of people who were in the different genres but you know but not huge names are going to recognize right off the bat but I will tell you this task force boasts such people as some names you might not recognize but you'd recognize their role like the times that president and CEO Tina Chad or singer andra day rapper common I Jimmy jam is on this task force committee Sony music's Jews Julie swindler so there's a lot of I'm there's a lot of and there's about one two three four five six about ten to twelve people on this task force they were able to assemble and get this statement out today when you read between the lines it is looking more and more to me like they are supportive of Deborah do again yeah and the actions that she was trying to implement and the work she was trying to do that they felt or at least she felt was what was being requested of her and so when you take a step back and look at what's going on right now really does look like they took this action to stop the ball from rolling forward yeah in I want to point out this part of the statement that this task force said they said change is hard yeah and it won't be easy to make these changes and then they express their disappointment and then at the end I think this is really important to point out because it's true yeah that music has historically catalyzed and galvanized mass social change and so it must be again now which I think is so beautifully written and so completely true well you know we're going to continue to have our eye on this story but certainly as we watch the Grammys on Sunday it'll be interesting to see how this is or is not addressed and what comes of it again Grammys on Sunday night and you can tune in on Monday to hear our hot takes on the Grammys alright when we come back on the calling to Bradley shoulders with Reese's ring all the dirt street from Hollywood it's a dirt alert on my talk one of seven one another Laurie and Julia moment this one from Tuesday in the five

"That's Dolly Varden and her God daughter Miley Cyrus last night on the Grammy. Steve futterman. Was there? Steve was night for ladies. Wasn't it? Was it also a nights to lap? I think when we look back on these Grammy awards ten years from now this will be the night that Grammy officials and builders fully accepted into the ranks obviously weapons in the rap categories. But never before had a rap song. One song of the year record of the year. That has now ended with childish Gambino. This is America winning last night. But it was also a big night for the late. Ladies remember last year? There was a bit of controversy some comments that were made by the president of the Recording Academy killing women if they just tried a bit harder. Well, they were saying they could find it very hard already getting what they wanted last night. Many women were rewarded properly? You had the host, Lisa keys. You had lady Gaga performing that. Nigga hit a shallow. And then you had Casey must graves winning four Grammys including album of the year for that goal. Gold. Hour, and you know. Country music is accepted, but not maybe as much as other John RAs with the Recording Academy for to win in this. General category was quite an honor last night. She's been a great musician for a long long time. But I think lyrically she kind of connects with just a lot of people are around the country yet. What what are your thoughts about how she came up the big winner last night? Yeah. Well, I mean, I was not surprised I actually was predicting that she would win best album. I thought it was the best album the song butterflies. William saw she is just a great lyricist. And what can I say about? I think she's just great. And it'll be very interesting for me to see if she has that cross over appeal, which is always the big question can a country star become a top one hundred starts. It's not easy. It can happen even has that desire. But it'll be very interesting. I'm sure there are producers out there. Yes, you can do it. It's difficult on Amores has been able to do it. But that's going straight to pop songs instead of baby country. It'll be interesting to see that listen that's part of the equation. That's what you have to do. We saw Taylor swift. Would be interesting to see if if Casey must Graham's warrants, I think she can be a success. If she does want to do it. Good point. Steve appreciate your time. Hope you had a great time at the Grammys and look forward to your reports. Thanks for your day to day. Have a great day. All right. You too steep. Joining us from CBS's big night. Also for some of the classics and some of the classic women Aretha Franklin. They had a tribute to her Diana Ross tribute to her. And of course, you heard about Dolly Parton there as well.

And you you I guess are getting ready for the Grammy's tomorrow. I am. Well, I'm not going to the Grammys. I have been a couple times. And it's pretty interesting pretty exciting. But I'm not going this year. I ever I did get to go to the producers and engineers wing of the Recording Academy which hands out the Grammy's, the producers and engineers wing or P E P E wing puts on a party during Grammy week every year. Always that way, the the really interesting nerd awards. There's are never on the TV. No, that's true. That's true. They do those in private hidden. Well, this wasn't really part of the Grammy awards. This was a party at the at the village recorders. It's then. Recording studio, and they have great food in every room and people demonstrating stuff, and they honor somebody every year in the music industry. Give him a lifetime achievement award or something like that. This year was Willie Nelson. Oh, what fun island really fun? He was there. He didn't. He didn't do very much. He's like eighty five. Now speaking we were talking about John Williams earlier, you know, and you hope you're productive. Your remain productive in your later year. Williams eighty seven th birthday the great score soundtrack. Yeah. Birthday was yesterday. Yep. Yep. Happy birthday. And so many great movie soundtracks, including mice. Yeah. Exactly. Well, Willie Nelson. I think just released his sixty ninth album. Never tell you Willie Nelson story. No them on the show. I felt bad because you know, he brought one of his like his old guitar has one so beat up. It's got holes in the wood and everything all in. Yeah. I think he's got named for that one. I can't remember. But anyway, he did play that one on last Wednesday. Yeah. And I asked him if I could hold it. And he was such a gentleman said, yes. And I realized afterwards that was incredibly rude. Billy, I apologize. And then he invited me on the bus. Oh, man. When I got on the bus as we'll smokey in there. Got on the bus. And gave me a red bandanna and a cop a bottle ole whiskey river that me off. And I was forget that I am a big fan. Well, you know, what in the band that played for his for his era Mony, it was the Dave Matthews band to itself a great band and should be sitting in with them. But two of Willie Nelson sons, isn't that neat? It was really neat entering the tars called trigger trigger. I think you're right. Right. Right. Right. Rogers horse. One of his sons start was singing, and I was going. Wait a second. Where's willy it? Sounded exactly like Willie Nelson. And it's really amazing amazing. So we had a great time there. And there'd been a bunch of other Grammy week events leading up to tomorrow show, which is really quite amazing. It's my favorite award show may be difficult for people understand why do you even like an award show? Well, I like this one because all the performances are entirely live. And that to me really says something that, you know, instead of all canned music or or stuff like that. They're actually performing live and the the technical infrastructure is quite amazing. There's going to be thirty five songs performed live on the show on seventeen different stage setups and the logistics of getting stage setups moved around here. And there is really quite amazing takes three days to do all that rehearsing. There's like four hundred microphones holy cow onstage. They use three megawatt. Of power all toll for this. For this presentation. It's mixed in five point one..

"But I'm at her Noto lobby. She sought me. And she was like, hey, hey, and she could not have been nicer and just more down to earth. I really enjoyed talking to her. And I think she's really talented. For someone that you should work with. It'd be at the grand talking about all the people that are going to be there. I'm like Mark to produce the song for her interesting. Like, yeah. Honestly, I think the reason is because that the new Miley song has is is just so veering toward country. It's not there. But it's like veering for sure. Yeah. That's funny. We've actually talked about doing something. And I think he's he's obviously great. So yeah, I'm down for any kind of a club. Even if it doesn't make sense on paper. I think that's what's beautiful about music is can just it can literally be whatever you want. So. You know last year there was like a lot of controversy about the lack of female representation in the top Grammy categories, especially so year later your nominee for Alan the year four other ladies not category with you among eight nominees. Do you think that the Recording Academy is kind of taken steps to address those issues or maybe as moving in the right direction in that sense? I think it's really exciting to see the music in Israel as a whole kind of moving moving towards fairness. But I also think that women are creating better music. You know what I mean? So it's it's a and it's a combination of both. You know what I mean like it? It takes women to have the balls to be unique enough to be noticed. But it takes two to notice. Yeah. And to be fair about that. So I think it's kind of a bipartisan role there. But I it's it's awesome. I dunno to see that kind of wide nothing. It's it's happening. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think it's. Yeah. In due time. It's to it's gonna. Of course. I I mean, yeah, totally Keith brought up something interesting the years ago. So a fun fact years ago this year was the so-called year of the woman at the Grammy awards where all of the five nominees in the autumn of the year category. Where either by solo woman or were by a band fronted by women? Wow. Twain's come on over Sheryl crow's the globe. Sessions Madonna's Ray of light Lauryn Hill's. The message occasion of Lauryn Hill and garbage is version two point out read those off without even looking at your sheet, shiny also at pick little grouping there seriously game changing album total in their own right. Yeah. That's crazy. And then since then we haven't had a year where there's been all women, and it was so weird. Like really so finally in nineteen ninety nine it was like the year of the woman, even though the Grammies have been around since what it was. Fifties. I don't know. If there was there a question, they're telling a fun little nugget that I'm gonna like file away. I enjoyed it. Oh, Thanks. thanks. I did that was really cool. So we've talked a lot about Grammy's. But you are currently on the North American leg of your what a world tour, and you know, last year able to tour with your golden our songs when you open for Harry styles. But what has it been like to play these songs for your crowd? Well, yeah, it's it's honestly everything to be able to have room full of people that really connect with the songs that you're playing this tour has kinda blow my mind, I think that there's a lot of new people that have come to the party through hearing this album, and it's very it's very obvious to me when we see these people on we hear them singing lyrics, and we still do include a little bit of the old material because that is still very much me. You know, but yeah, it's been really fun to put together and the the songs just feel Good Hope they feel good to hear. But they feel good for me to play. You know, they're very I don't know kind of tranquil, you know, kind of blissed out. Well, I want people to kind of come and have a little bit of zen moment at the show. You can't really expect it to be like crazy high energy. But ultimately, I just wanted to feel good and be kind of sensory like I wanted to look really pretty and it feels kind of dreamy. Yeah.
