Rachel Heston-Davis GC Alumnus Wins Big at the Grammys

Andre Anjos ’09 won the award for Best Remixed Recording at the 2017 Grammys on February 12 for his remix of “Tearing Me Up” by Bob Moses.

The win was an exciting victory for Anjos, who was nominated for best remix last year for his version of Odesza’s “Say My Name.”

Anjos is the solo artist behind RAC, which has produced more than 200 remixed songs from artists such as Lady Ga Ga, Bob Marley, Ella Fitsgerald, Kings of Leon, Katy Perry, The Shins, Bloc Party, Chromeo, Lana Del Rey, Two Door Cinema Club and more. His work has been featured in advertising for high-profile companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google, Citibank and others.

Anjos formed RAC while still a music business student at Greenville College. He completed his first remix, The Shins’ “Sleeping Lessons,” as a sophomore. He remembers the music scene at Greenville College fondly, including the level of support and camaraderie between music students.

His success in the industry since graduation also yielded Strangers, an album of original work released on Cherrytree/Interscope Records.

Anjos’ co-collaborator, wife Liz (Derstine ’07) joined her husband on the red carpet at the awards ceremony. She helps to produce RAC cover songs.
