The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, the premier institution for audio engineering education, has announced that 39 CRAS graduates worked on GRAMMY-nominated albums and songs across 40 categories during the past year.

Six of these CRAS graduates have been nominated for a GRAMMY Award. The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards show is scheduled for Monday, January 31 at the Arena in Los Angeles.

"Our industry has worked hard to get back to where we were pre-pandemic," said Kirt Hamm, CRAS administrator. "We may not be completely there yet, but one thing is for sure is that our graduates work incredibly hard and continue to be recognized for their contributions to the music industry year in and year out. We could not be more proud of our grads, and soon-to-be grads. All of our GRAMMY-nominated graduates, as well as all of our graduates that are living their dream in this business, are fine examples of where hard work and dedication can take you, especially during these trying times."

This year, the following CRAS graduates have been nominated for a GRAMMY Award:
• Jeff Ellis; mix engineer; Album of the Year for 'Planet Her (Deluxe)' by Doja Cat
• Omar Loya; engineer; Album of the Year for 'Back of My Mind' by H.E.R.
• Cory Bice; engineer; Album of the Year for 'Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe)' by Justin Bieber

• Jonathan Pfarr; engineer; Album of the Year for 'Donda' by Kanye West
• Todd Monfalcone; engineer; Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for 'Dawn' by Yebba

Last year, six CRAS graduates worked on six 2021 GRAMMY Award-winning nominations by numerous artists. In total, 25 CRAS graduates worked on 28 GRAMMY-nominated albums and songs.

The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences is composed of two nearby campuses in Gilbert and Tempe, Ariz. A CRAS education includes broadcast audio, live sound, film and TV audio, music, and video game audio, all taught by award-winning instructors who have all excelled in their individual fields, including sound reinforcement, audio recording and production, digital recording, troubleshooting/maintenance, and music business.
