Cameron Carpenter is a young organ virtuoso/composer/experimenter and the first organist ever nominated for a Grammy for a solo album. He is often described as "smashing," a word that applies in two senses. One, he has smashing, asymmetrical hair. Two, the Los Angeles Times says, "He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And most important of all, the most musical." This is not your minister's organist.
