Seattle musicians Brandi Carlile, Death Cab for Cutie, and Seattle Symphony earn Grammy nominations

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Seattle has a long tradition of receiving Grammy Awards and nominations. In its 58-year history, artists from the Emerald City have collected these golden grammophones, the music industry's top prize, including Quincy Jones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Heart, Soundgarden, and Diane Schurr. Several more have been nominated over the years, from Death Cab for Cutie to Gerard Schwartz to Bonnie McKee. On December 7, singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, rock trio Death Cab for Cutie, and classical ensemble the Seattle Symphony were all mentioned for the 2015-16 honors amongst fellow artists in 83 categories.

Carlile, who performed at a restaurant-bar on Queen Anne in her early days, earned her first Grammy nomination for The Firewatcher's Daughter (Best Americana Album), released in March. The folk musician, who welcomed a baby girl with wife Catherine Shepherd in 2014, posted a photo on social media holding a sheet of paper that read 'speechless' shortly after learning she'd been nominated, while one of her band members held up another sheet of paper that said '#FirstTimeGrammyNominee'; the photo was snapped at an airport baggage claim area, indicating Carlile had likely just landed. She'll embark on a brief tour with The Avett Brothers later next spring that includes an already sold out date at NYC's Madison Square Garden.

Death Cab for Cutie has teeter-tottered between the alternative music, pop and rock fields over the years, scooping up multiple Grammy nods for their albums Plans, Narrow Stairs, and Codes and Keys, and their singles 'I Will Follow You Into the Dark' and 'I Will Possess Your Heart.' This time around, Kintsugi, the band's newest effort - and their first as a three-piece minus Chris Walla - made the final cut for Best Rock Album. Meanwhile, the Seattle Symphony and its musical director Ludovic Morlot received 3 nominations in the classical music field, including Best Orchestral Performance.

But Monday morning, which began with Alicia Keys announcing nominees in the four General Field categories: Album, Record, and Song of the Year, and Best New Artist, belonged to Kendrick Lamar. The acclaimed rapper dominated with 11 mentions, including Album of the Year for To Pimp a Butterfly and Record of the Year for 'Alright,' followed by Taylor Swift with 7, including head-to-head battles with Lamar for Album of the Year (1989), and Record and Song of the Year ('Blank Space'). The Weeknd also nabbed 7 nods, and will challenge Swift and Lamar for Album and Record of the Year with his full-length recording Beauty Behind the Madness and single 'Can't Feel My Face.'

Aside from Lamar, Swift, and The Weeknd, the coveted Album of the Year category includes Chris Stapleton's Traveller and Alabama Shakes' Sound & Color. Competing for Record of Year, besides the aforementioned three, are 'Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars and 'Really Love' by D'Angelo and The Vanguard. And for Best New Artist, the award will go to either Courtney Barnett, Sam Hunt, James Bay, Tori Kelley, or Meghan Trainor.

In the always competitive Best Alternative Music Album category, the final five are once again impressive: Sound & Color by Alabama Shakes, Vulnicura by Bjork, The Waterfall by My Morning Jacket, Currents by Tame Impala, and Star Wars by Wilco. In a similarly close race, Best Dance Recording, the nominees are 'We're All We Need' by Above & Beyond featuring Zoe Johnston, 'Go' by The Chemical Brothers featuring Q-Tip, 'Never Catch Me' by Flying Lotus featuring Kendrick Lamar, 'Runaway (U & I)' by Galantis, and 'Where Are U Now' by Skrillex and Diplo with Justin Bieiber.

The Grammy Awards will take place February 15, 2016 at LA's Staples Center.
