Nicholas Jennings, Words & Music, Summer 2014

HIS WORK HAS won Grammys, JUNOs and an Emmy, and he's been nominated for an Oscar. He's an acclaimed solo artist, frequent collaborator with Arcade Fire, composer for ballets and symphonies, and the music industry's go-to guy for lavish orchestral arrangements. On top of that, Brian Eno is one of his biggest fans.
