The Producers & Engineers Wing of The Recording Academy, in association with NAMM, presented the 13th Grammy SoundTable at the Winter NAMM show, on the topic of Hoobastank’s 2004 hit song “The Reason,” from its debut album.
The event was called, “Anatomy Of A Hit: Hoobastank’s The Reason,” and convened key players in the creation of this multi-platinum album for a discussion on its creative journey from the inspiration for its songs, to their inception as chords and lyrics, through the production process, to the final mixes.
