Berklee also has a strong local connection with faculty members Jackie Santos and Armsted Christian, a Grammy nominee. Both are revered musicians who have recorded their own material and have worked with world class performers. We are very fortunate to have such a respected college within an hour of New Bedford. The full list of Berklee 2014 Grammy winners include:

  • Best Rock Performance – “Radioactive” Artist: Imagine Dragons. Wayne Sermon ’08, Daniel Platzman ’09, Ben McKee ’09
  • Best R & B Performance: “Something” Artist: Snarky Puppy with Lalah Hathaway ’94
  • Best Jazz Instrumental Album: “Kinky Boots” Artist: Original Broadway Cast. Stephen Oremus ’92
  • Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist: “Swing Low” Artist: Bobby McFerrin and Esperanza Spalding. Gil Goldstein ’70

To date, more than 100 Berklee alumni have received over 230 Grammy Awards, popular music’s highest honor!
