Eleven Alumni Credited on 15th Annual Latin GRAMMY Nominated Projects

The 15th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will take place this Thursday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Eleven Full Sail alumni are credited as having worked on nominated projects, with three grads eligible to receive awards for their contributions should they win.

John Blais and S. Edward “Scott” Canto are both up for awards for their work as recording engineers in the Record of the Year and Album of the Year categories. John worked on Calle 13’s MultiViral, as well as Jorge Drexler’s Bailar En La Cueva. Scott worked on Carlos Vives’ Mas + Corazon Profundo

Felipe Tichauer is up for a statue in the category of Best Engineered Album for his work as a mastering engineer on Antonio Adolfo’s album Rio, Choro, Jazz…

This marks the second year that John Blais has been nominated. In 2011, he received a Latin GRAMMY for his work on Calle 13’s Entren Los Que Quieran. In 2010, he was working at a studio when Calle 13’s Eduardo Cabra came in. He mentioned he was having some problems with his recording set-up at home, and John offered to take a look at it. The two hit it off, and John has been working with the group ever since.

“Just to have the privilege to work with somebody like Calle 13, I listened to their music when I was in high school, and being able to work with them now has been absolutely amazing,” says John. “I was in the right place at the right time, but it helps to always show your passion and what it is you want to do.”
