Our Reflection on the 2013 Grammys

Our reflection on last night’s Grammy Awards is an overwhelming sense that this is a great time for music. It’s remarkable to see so many different, organic styles of music rising to the top (Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, fun., Gotye, The Black Keys, Frank Ocean and Ed Sheeran, for example) and succeeding alongside existing Pop stars like Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna and Alicia Keys. Also evident is the voice of the consumer—calling out for greater experimentation and new sounds—being heard.
