REDDING, Conn. -- Redding musician Paul Avgerinos won his first Grammy Award on Sunday night for Best New Age Album.

This was the second nomination in two years for the New Age composer and his first win. Avgerinos runs Studio Unicorn on Sanfordtown Road.

He beat out the following competitors:

  • Madi Das for "Bhakti Without Borders"
  • Catherine Duc for "Voyager"
  • Peter Kater for "Love"
  • Ron Korb for "Asia Beauty"

According to Avgerinos’s website, the winning album, “Grace,” is his 24th. It features Laura Sullivan and Kevin Braheny Fortune.

In 2015, his album “Bhakti” also was nominated for a Grammy.

According to Wikipedia, the 48-year-old owner of Studio Unicorn also produces music for film, TV and commercials. He is recognized as “One of the Giants of New Age Music,” by All Music Guide.

A graduate of The Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University, Avgerinos went on to be the principal bass violin in orchestras in Italy, Hong Kong and Venezuela. He also toured with Charles Aznavour and Buddy Rich before opening his own studio, the Wiki entry said.
