PAUL McCARTNEY’S LIVE KISSES DVD RECEIVES TWO GRAMMYS
Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to celebrate two Grammy wins at Sunday night’s Grammy Award Ceremony (January 26, 2014). Paul McCartney’s Live Kisses, which was released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 13, 2012, received “Best Surround Sound Album” and “Best Music Film.”
“It is with an incredible sense of pride that Eagle Rock joins in celebrating the huge talent that is Sir Paul McCartney,” states Mike Carden, President Of Operations North America. “We work very hard to ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the fantastic works that this great artist creates. I am proud to play a part in the team that is Eagle Rock Entertainment Worldwide. Congratulations to all for achieving the honor of not one but two Grammys.”
Executive Chairman and CEO of Eagle Rock Entertainment Terry Shand, and Geoff Kempin, Executive Director of Eagle Rock Entertainment said "We are delighted to win these awards for this great film with Paul McCartney. It was a very exciting and groundbreaking project!"
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, Live Kisses is a stunning 13-song film, capturing Paul McCartney performing his Kisses On The Bottom album live in the intimate surroundings of Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. The film tells the story of how, with the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma, Diana Krall and her band, Paul created a critically acclaimed album, which featured guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder. Without his famous Höfner bass in hand or in fact any musical instruments, Paul took his place behind the same microphone that has captured some of the most iconic voices in history to focus on his vocal delivery as he led the assembled A-list group of musicians through a collection of the standards he grew up listening to in his childhood, as well as his own original composition “My Valentine.” Live Kisses is an intimate and charming concert film which offers an insight into the music and songwriters that inspired Paul to go on to become the most successful songwriter and performer in modern history.
