Spotlight: Justin Tranter

Featuring Special Guest Performers Sofia Carson, Shea Diamond, and YDE

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Justin Tranter for an intimate conversation about their astounding career, impressive list of GRAMMY-nominated and GRAMMY-winning projects, and more. The conversation will be followed by performances from Sofia Carson, Shea Diamond and YDE.

Justin Tranter is one of the most in-demand songwriters in music today, an ACLU Bill of Rights Award-winning activist, and founder of Facet Records & Facet Publishing. With over 50 million single sales, 50 billion streams on Spotify and YouTube alone, multiple diamond-certified songs, and dozens of honors including GRAMMY® and Golden Globes® nominations, 15 total BMI Pop Awards and two consecutive “Songwriter of the Year” titles at the BMI Pop Awards, Tranter has lent their talents to several of the most iconic albums in recent memory, including Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next (2019), Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia (2020), Lady Gaga’s Chromatica (2020), The Chicks’ Gaslighter (2020) and Selena Gomez’s Rare (2020), as well as Bieber’s Purpose. Tranter’s unparalleled creative fingerprint can be felt across music, film, TV and theater, as they have written regularly with some of the biggest names in music including Demi Lovato, The Jonas Brothers, Leon Bridges, Janelle Monae, Cardi B, King Princess, Camila Cabello, Kesha, and more. They co-created the heralded musical Wild directed by Diane Paulus, written by V (formerly Eve Ensler) and starring Idina Menzel, and served as the executive producer for the soundtrack to Happiest Season, the acclaimed holiday film that smashed records as Hulu’s most-watched original movie debut ever. With several major film and TV projects in development, they will next serve as executive music producer for Billy Porter’s directorial debut Anything’s Possible, co-wrote several original songs for Netflix’s upcoming film Purple Hearts, and is currently writing new original music for the highly anticipated forthcoming Grease prequel series Rise of The Pink Ladies that will be arriving on Paramount+ this year.  

Their songwriting career thus far spans generational songs ranging from the diamond-certified smash “Sorry” (Justin Bieber) and “Believer” (Imagine Dragons), to Selena Gomez’s “Good For You” [feat. A$AP Rocky], Halsey’s “Bad At Love,” Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries,” DNCE’S “Cake by the Ocean,” and Maroon 5’s “Cold”, to name just a few! So far in 2022, Tranter co-wrote Maneskin’s chart-ascending new single “Supermodel” as well as Imagine Dragons & JID’s new single “Enemy” featured in the acclaimed Netflix series Arcane: League of Legends, the latter of which has claimed the #1 spot at Top 40 Radio, Alternative Radio, Hot AC Radio, and overall radio.
