Grammy Museum Experience Prudential Center in Newark is launching a new Online Learning and Content Hub with a weekly video series titled Behind the Songs, and a weekly podcast, Musically Speaking.
The Behind the Songs videos will feature 45-minute conversations between Grammy Museum Experience Prudential Center director of artist relations and programming Mark Conklin and various recording artists, songwriters and producers. Most conversations will be followed by a performance. The series begins June 11 at 7 p.m. and will feature G. Love; future guests will include Erika Ender and Brandy Clark.
The Musically Speaking podcast will feature audio from public programs previously held in the museum, and the museum’s online programs. The first episode, to be released June 15 at 7 p.m., will feature The Zombies, with future guests including DJ Khaled and Naughty by Nature.
Grammy Museum Experience Prudential Center also will continue to release a twice-weekly video series, Mini Masterclass, which features 10-minute interviews with artists such as Mario Winans, Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC, Estelle, and Matthew Ramsey of Old Dominion. And it plans to highlight virtual exhibits released by the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
All Online Learning and Content Hub offerings will be available on the GRAMMYMuseumEXP.org home page.
Here is an example of a Mini Masterclass, with Joel Little, a producer, songwriter and musician who has worked with Lorde, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, among many others.
