On Saturday, May 11th, API Co-Founder Saul Walker (1969-2016) was honored with the Recording AcademyTM Technical GRAMMY® Award for his life-long achievements in the music industry as an exceptional designer, engineer, teacher, and mentor. In attendance at the Hollywood Dolby Theatre ceremony were API President Larry Droppa and Mr. Walker's family, including his daughter Yren Berry who accepted the award on his behalf.
Although Mr. Walker founded API 50 years ago in 1969, his designs remain the backbone of API and continue to influence the music industry. API could not be more honored to continue his legacy 50 years later. API would like to thank the Recording AcademyTM and the GRAMMY® Awards for recognizing Saul Walker's influence and accomplishments within the music industry.
