• 2015 Grammy Nomination for Cd with Turtle Island Quartet

    “What sweet confirmation it is to be up for a Grammy with Mike Marshall for the recording we made together, a joy in the making, at times felt like the proverbial falling off the log, other times, a eye-opening challenge as to how hard it could be to reach the level called for as per our collective dedication to stylistic integrity. A true learning immersion, and it is immensely gratifying that the academy saw fit to honor us with this nomination.”

    -David Balakrishnan, Turtle Island Quartet
