The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will be held February 12 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast live on CBS. For the first time in six years LL Cool J will step down as host so that late night television personality and viral video superstar James Corden can take the reigns. Today, The Recording Academy revealed the 2017 GRAMMY nominees. You can view the full list of contenders here.
We wanted to take a moment and celebrate the more than a dozen talented performers and groups who received GRAMMY nominations today after relying on Haulix for their promotional distribution needs. We have clients nominated in every single genre, including some of the biggest names in music at the moment. Chance The Rapper, Blink-182, Metallica, Weezer, Korn, Periphery, Sia, and Highly Suspect, and just a few of the artists have used Haulix in the last twelve months to ensure their albums were securely and discreetly shared with members of the industry at large.
Everything in this business is connected. The albums that receive GRAMMY nominations are often the records that have strong promotion behind them, and that is only possible if the records are bringing in money and getting a positive word of mouth. We play an integral role in ensuring that happens by providing a platform that connects industry professionals from all corners of the planet with new and unreleased music in a manner that is safe and secure. By keeping leaks to a minimum and helping artists to fight any unwanted sharing of their material online we have helped hundreds, if not thousands of performers find success in this business and we hope to continue doing so for many years to come.
All that said, this post is not intended to be all about us. We do what we do because we love music, and it makes us extremely happy and proud to see the artists who believe in us receive the recognition we have long known they deserved. Congratulations to everyone. Here’s hoping at least a few of you bring home shiny gold statues in February 2017.
