Reason to Smile: Roomful of Teeth Wins Grammy
Roomful of Teeth has been wowing North County audiences for years with its popular annual residencies at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Now, the whole world knows what the buzz is about.
On Sunday in Los Angeles, Roomful of Teeth, which was founded in 2009 by Williams College artist-in-residence Brad Wells, won a Grammy.
The a capella group blends non-classical vocal traditions from around the world. The New York Times described its eponymous debut album in 2012 as "sensually stunning."
The octet, which brings together artists scattered around the country, was nominated for three Grammys. It won for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.
Congratulations to the ensemble. The linked article includes an interview with founder Brad Wells.
