Lenny Kravitz On His Biggest Influences, Love, Creativity & More
GRAMMY winner Lenny Kravitz has been making waves in the rock scene for almost 20 years, since releasing his 1989 debut album Let Love Rule. To date he has put out ten studio albums, countless hits and taken home four GRAMMYs, all for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, making him the artist with the most wins in that category. His first win was at the 41st GRAMMY Awards for "Fly Away," from his album of the same name, followed by an astonishing three more back to back wins. Yet Kravitz feels his work has just begun and is still set on finessing his craft and creating new music for years to come. His latest release Raise Vibration, released on Sept. 7, is shining and upbeat, and shares his positive message with the world.
Dressed stylishly laidback in an all denim look, Kravitz visited the GRAMMY Museum for an intimate conversation at the Clive Davis Theater. Before the event we caught up with him about his biggest musical influences are, his creative process, how he felt after his fourth GRAMMY in a row, and more.
He points out that the positivity on his latest album is aligned with what his music has always been about. "My main message is what it has always been, and that is love," Kravitz shares.
