The GRAMMY Museum was thrilled to present an intimate conversation and performance with Blondshell at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY. The conversation, hosted by Rolling Stone’s Angie Martoccio, included a discussion about the making of her album, creative process, career, and more. Following the conversation, there was a performance.
Blondshell is one of many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast in partnership with the City of New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. “A New York Evening With…” is generously supported by the Dawn and Brian Hoesterey Family Foundation.
In the past few years, the 25-year-old Sabrina Teitelbaum has transformed into a songwriter without fear. The loud-quiet excavations that comprise the hook-filled Blondshell don’t only stare traumas in the eye, they tear them at the root and shake them, bringing precise detail to colossal feelings. They’re clear-eyed statements of and about digging your way towards confidence, self-possession, and relief.
Teitelbaum starting teasing Blondshell in 2022, capturing the attention of music critics and fans along the way with singles “Olympus,” “Kiss City,” “Veronica Mars,” and “Sepsis,” which Rolling Stone listed as their #1 Pick of the Month for their “Recommends” column. Last fall Blondshell also released “Cartoon Earthquake” as part of her partnership with Spotify for their Fresh Finds emerging artists program. Earlier this year Blondshell released her debut album, hailed by the Los Angeles Times as the “rock debut of 2023,” and has gone on to win the SXSW Grulke Developing Artist Prize, as well as make her late-night TV debut on The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon amidst a cavalcade of sold-out headline shows and global media acclaim.
