Recently we were thrilled to welcome Ziggy Marley to our inaugural “Let’s Talk Music” event (hosted every quarter at LAMA). The series continues November 6 at 8pm with six-time Grammy Award Winner Glen Ballard, the songwriter, lyricist and record producer probably best known for co-writing and producing Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill (winner of Grammy Awards for “Best Rock Album” and “Album of the Year”). He was also involved in the recording and writing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Bad, co-writing songs including “Man in the Mirror” and “Hand in My Pocket” and is the founder of Java Records.
Students, alumni and associates are invited tomorrow night to LAMA’s Performance Hall for the special evening, where Native Wayne Jobson will join us and interview Glen about his work and the state of the music industry. The event is open to the public — however, limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All those who want to attend must RSVP by registering at this link. Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow night — so get ready… #LetsTalkMusic!
Students, alumni and associates are very much looking forward to the August 21st event at LAMA featuring five-time Grammy winner (and newly-awarded Emmy winner) Ziggy Marley and Grammy-winning producer Native Wayne Jobson. LAMA’s #LetsTalkMusic series is invite-only and hosted every quarter at LAMA. Jobson will interview Marley, a musician, actor, artist, activist and humanitarian, about his history in the music industry, journey as an artist, and aspirations to affect change with his music.
LAMA has also announced a new scholarship in Ziggy’s name, the Ziggy Marley Artist Scholarship. For more information, visit www.lama.edu.
