Grammy for Guernsey's Mura Masa

Monday 11 February 2019

Guernsey born music producer Mura Masa has won a Grammy, which are described as the Oscars of the music world.

His award was in recognitions of his work remixing the HAIM song 'Walking Away'.

It was the second time Alex Crossan was nominated for one of the biggest awards in the music industry - having received a nod for his work in 2017 when he was shortlisted for electronic dance album of the year, and art work of the year for his self titled debut album.

While he didn't win then, he is now likely to be celebrating after being honoured for his remixing work.

He had asked for support from his fans before the awards ceremony, with many then congratulating him on his later win.

Mura Masa was born and educated in Guernsey - having attended Castel Primary and the Guernsey Grammar School. In previous interviews he has said the island influenced his musical tastes from a young age.

He comes from a very musical family - his dad was in a number of well known bands in the island, while his brother Eli currently performs with the band Kings. 

The full list of winners at the 2019 Grammy Awards is here.
