As the Grammy Awards draw near, two of Canada's finest musical talents, folk singer Allison Russell and rapper Drake, are positioned at the forefront, each boasting four nominations.

Accompanying the Canadian duo is the highly praised mix engineer Serban Ghenea. Though originally from Romania, Ghenea's Canadian upbringing has been a part of his journey to becoming a revered name in the music industry. With expertise that has shaped the sounds for artists like Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift, Ghenea has already earned himself an impressive 19 Grammy Awards. This year, his magic touch could bring him even more success, as he has secured seven nominations for his mixing prowess.
