The Inception of the Celebration of Craft Event

The Celebration of Craft event is a fresh initiative by the Recording Academy's Producers and Songwriters Wing and the Songwriters and Composers Wing. These groups come together to honor seven-time Grammy winner and trailblazer Leslie Ann Jones.

The event commemorates Jones' remarkable four-decade career in recording and mixing, as well as her historic position as the first woman Chair of the Recording Academy's Board of Trustees. Her portfolio includes working with icons like Herbie Hancock and Santana, and her contributions extend to the realms of TV, film, video games, and classical music production.
