Congratulations go out to Kris Bowers on his Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media GRAMMY nomination for Bridgerton, the Shondaland/Netflix hit series! This is his first Best Score GRAMMY nomination. Previously, Kris also earned a GRAMMY nom for Best Arrangement in 2020 for “Blue Skies.”
The Bridgerton series soundtrack has been the talk of the Ton ever since the series waltzed into our homes and cast a spell on everyone. Fans of Bridgerton who missed out on the vinyl soundtrack pre-order on the Lakeshore webshop need not worry: you can still order the coveted records at retailers such as Amazon! And in case you’re wondering: both Kris Bowers’ obsession-worthy score and the delightful classical covers of pop songs by Duomo and Vitamin String Quartet are indeed included in this vinyl record release!

“In recent years, film music has undergone yet another transformation, with composers coming to the form not only from conservatories but also from the worlds of hip-hop, rock, jazz, and experimental music. Many work in close collaboration with directors to evoke mood as much as emotion. With programs curated by composers, Reel Change: The New Era of Film Music celebrates this period of increasingly adventurous film music and the wide-ranging influences of its most groundbreaking voices.”
All three composers have recently released soundtracks on Lakeshore Records; listen to their soundtracks below.
