May 20. Two members of The Glass Hammers have been selected to attend the  Grammy Camp this summer. Analise Malick, 16, of Mooresville and Patrick Dukes, 15, of Huntersville are among the 142 students from 30 states who were selected for the live-in music industry camp. Participants will meet recording artists, write and record new music, and perform in a professional venue.

They have performed at Bella Love’s Open Mic night in downtown Cornelius.

Malick has been singing more than half her life and plays guitar, banjo and piano. She performs in many genres, including classic rock, country, opera and pop. A Lamon Records recording artist, Malick has traveled to Nashville to hang out at the Grand Ole Opry, play with professional musicians and record at Quad Studios.

Malick’s CD “1000 Things” was released in October 2013 and is available on iTunes, Amazon and YouTube.

Guitarist Patrick Dukes began playing at age 8 after becoming hooked on the “Guitar Hero” video game. In less than a year, he was entertaining audiences and playing Jimi Hendrix and Van Halen tunes.

In 2015, Dukes was accepted by The JAM Advanced Music Camp in Nashville and accepted by exception as a 14-year-old into the Berklee School of Music’s Guitar Sessions summer program with a scholarship based on video auditions. In addition to the Grammy Camp, Dukes is slated to return to both Nashville and Boston for the The JAM Camp and Berklee’s guitar program this summer.
