A Bad Think, a musical project led by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Marquart, has been honored with a GRAMMY® nomination for its album The Savior in the category Best Immersive Audio Album, to be awarded at the upcoming 62nd GRAMMY Awards, taking place Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The nomination for The Savior specifically cites the following individuals: Bob Clearmountain, immersive audio engineer; Bob Ludwig, immersive audio mastering engineer; and Michael Marquart & Dave Way, immersive audio producers.
“I’m thrilled to be honored by my peers in the category Best Immersive Audio Album at the upcoming GRAMMY Awards,” stated Marquart. “It was a collaborative project with Dave, Bob, and Bob, each of them contributing their expertise to make my musical vision a reality.”
The Savior, double-LP available in a 5.1 mix by Bob Clearmountain, is the latest album by A Bad Think. It is composed of modern alternative songs featuring rich melodic textures and sincere, emotional lyrics. “The album tells a story of the rise and fall of a reluctant king,” states Michael Marquart, the lead singer, songwriter and sole member of A Bad Think. The album was produced by Marquart and producer-engineer Dave Way at The Barn in Malibu, CA and Waystation Studio in Hollywood. The album was mixed by mixer Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig. More cinematic than ever, the album’s style shifts from classical to country, from lo-fi acoustic to hard rock, all depending on what is happening in the story.
