Recording Academy / GRAMMYs  The Recording Academy has been celebrating music through the GRAMMY Awards for more than 50 years.

As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman helped give birth to Southern rock, blazing a trail for a generation of musicians who were equally influenced by the blues, Southern soul, and rock. His earthy vocals graced songs that have become rock standards, including "Midnight Rider" and "Whipping Post”, in addition to his own solo records. The band won a GRAMMY® Award in 1995 for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for "Jessica," a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012, and their groundbreaking album At Fillmore East was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame® in 1999. We have lost a pioneering force in American music, and our condolences go out to Gregg's family, friends, colleagues, and music fans everywhere.

"Elliott Smith is without a doubt the musician that has influenced me the most. I was 13 when I started listening to "Either/Or" & it didn't take long before the obsession was in full bloom. I wanted to find out what his inspirations was which introduced me to genres that I never would have listened to otherwise at such a young age. "Either/Or" has since then been a trusty companion in my life helping me through tough times & being a gorgeous lo-fi ethereal soundtrack to the good ones. The day "Either/Or" entered my life was the day I stopped feeling alone. That's how powerful music can be." - @mionyl
