From all of us at Orange Amplification, we would like to wish all our Grammy nominated Ambassadors good luck for the up and coming awards in January 2021.
Guitar phenom, Marcus King, has been nominated in the Best Americana Album category. The critically acclaimed ‘El Dorado’ establishes King as an innovative songwriter with a soulful voice and blistering solos. Fellow blues innovator, Fantastic Negrito, has been nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album. His timely fourth album, ‘Have You Lost Your Mind Yet?’ is far reaching with hints of many musical genres and plenty of sonic colour. Plus, one of the fastest rising guitar pickers, Billy Strings has been nominated for Best Bluegrass Album with ‘Home’, a fresh exploration of this traditional music genre.
Other Orange Ambassador nominations include producer and guitarist Andrew Watt in the Producer of the Year (Non Classical), Album of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album categories. He produced, played guitar on and helped write Ozzy Osbourne’s album, ‘Ordinary Man’. Last, but not least, Code Orange, known for their exhilarating, unpredictable live shows have been nominated for Best Metal Performance.
