Where It All Began - Matthew Morrison

Actor and singer/songwriter Matthew Morrison recently visited The Recording Academy's headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., to participate in an exclusive GRAMMY.com interview. Morrison discussed collaborating with the late 14-time GRAMMY-winning producer Phil Ramone and Smokey Robinson on his new album, Where It All Began.

"The late Phil Ramone was an absolute genius," said Morrison. "He really brought the best out in me. We dug deep and he brought me into Capitol Records to record with 'the Frank Sinatra' microphone. It was a really cool recording process."

Although known for his portrayal of optimistic glee club director Will Schuester on the hit TV show "Glee," Morrison first gained fame performing in several Broadway musicals, including "Footloose" and "Hairspray." A California native, Morrison released his self-titled debut album in 2011, peaking at No. 24 on the Billboard 200, with duets featuring Gwyneth Paltrow and GRAMMY winners Elton John and Sting. In 2012 Morrison became the first artist to sign with Adam Levine's record label, 222 Records.

Released June 4 and produced by Ramone (Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Paul Simon), Morrison's sophomore album, Where It All Began, features a collection of 12 Broadway standards, including the lead single "It Don't Mean A Thing," " Luck Be A Lady" and "Ease On Down The Road," a duet featuring GRAMMY winner Robinson.
