Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, GRAMMY® winner, New York Times best-selling author, and co-founder and chief lyricists of The Beach Boys, Mike Love released a special double album, on Nov. 17 through BMG. Titled Unleash the Love, the album features 13 previously unreleased songs and 12 re-recordings of Beach Boys classics. Produced by GRAMMY winner Mike Lloyd, the album is a testament to, and continuation of, Love’s remarkable career. The new tracks range from rock, gospel, R&B, and pop and celebrate Love’s journey to find personal love and peace. Love's history with transcendental meditation anchors several songs, including "Ram Raj," which celebrates the divine; "Pisces Brothers," a tribute to the late George Harrison and the experiences they both shared in India in 1968; and "Cool Head, Warm Heart," a breezy pop song that borrows its title from a saying by Maharishi Mahesh. The special double album also features new versions of classic hits recorded by members of The Beach Boys touring band such as "California Girls," "Help Me Rhonda," "Good Vibrations," "Do It Again" featuring Mark McGrathand and John Stamos, as well as "Darlin'" featuring AJR. The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Mike Love to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on his career and new music, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Following the conversation, Love will perform a special acoustic set.

The son of an African-American jazz musician and classically trained British opera singer, recent two-time GRAMMY nominee Clint Holmes was raised with the best of two musical worlds. Not only a singer, Holmes is a consummate entertainer, performer, and recording artist. Whether performing selections from the Great American Songbook, contemporary classics, or stirring original pieces, every performance is a one-of-a-kind experience. Skilled with a powerful tenor voice, magnetic stage presence, and a entertaining comedic streak, Holmes’ 40-plus-year career has taken him to the top of the charts, to concert halls, on TV screens, and also cemented his legacy as a veritable Las Vegas institution. His new release, Rendezvous, is a star-studded jazz collective produced by three-time GRAMMY winner Gregg Field. The album offers a diverse playlist that reinterprets modern day and classic pop hits, soulful R&B, theatrical tunes, and numbers culled from the Great American Songbook. Rendezvous features guest appearances by GRAMMY winners Patti Austin and Dee Dee Bridgewater, and multi-GRAMMY nominees Ledisi, and Dave Koz. The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome Clint Holmes, along with Gregg Field, Jane Monheit, and Christian Tamburr, to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on Holmes' new music and brief performance, hosted by Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.
