Cheryl B. Engelhardt received her first New Age Ambient or Chant Album GRAMMY Award nomination this year for her latest album “The Passenger.” Thea Wood spoke to her about the therapeutic story behind the album, which was written and recorded on a cross-country train trip and produced and mastered by an all-female team.
In this episode, Cheryl covers:
– How New Age/Ambient music is different than other genres
– The challenges of writing/recording an album on a train (with a few good travel tips thrown in!)
– The influence that her best friend’s death had on this album, and the hidden message for him
– The GRAMMY nomination process and playing the long game to win
