BILLBOARD DEBATE: Does Adele’s Historic Sales Performance Mark a Turning Point for the Music Industry? Billboard published a debate that explores Adele’s historic record sales and whether they mark a turning point for the music industry. They explore the the fact that “roughly half of Adele’s first-week sales were in physical form” and that maybe “soul never goes out of style” (also referencing former number 1 album, “Traveler” by Chris Stapleton). But does that really mean a change for the industry?
Do206 listed their “15 Favorite Albums of 2015” and ReverbNation CONNECT rockers, The Grizzled Mighty, made the cut with their February release of “Closed Knuckle Jaw.”
Keeping in the “Best of” theme, Gorilla vs. Bear revealed their picks for “Best Songs of 2015,” and Kentucky-based, rising electronic producer, Ellie Herring, makes the list for her single, “Why’d You.”
GRAMMY nominations were announced this week and ReverbNation CONNECT’s CFCF has been nominated for “Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical,” for his rendition of, “Berlin By Overnight,” by Max Ritcher.
