Congratulations to the 49 ReverbNation Artists recognized by this year’s GRAMMY Awards, with nominations in 29 different categories. From genres as diverse as Best New Age Album, Best Alternative Music Album, and Best Recording Package, there are few areas where ReverbNation Artists were not recognized.
One Artist, Miami, Florida’s PALO! was nominated for the Best Latin Tropical Album, in addition to grabbing a Latin GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Tropical Album of the Year. Keyboardist Steve Roitstein says that PALO!’s “Afro-Cuban Funk” was “never created to receive industry accolades, but the recognition from the Grammys is an amazing honor for us.”
Despite such a wide array of recent success, Roitstein is quick to note that “as an independent band, we have no financial backing. Any radio, TV, or media coverage comes from individuals who want to share our music and story with their audience.” Fortunately, “companies like ReverbNation make this communication much easier with time-saving and user-friendly tools.”
We’ve put together a playlist of a few of the nominees to demonstrate the range of music and the talent represented, so check that out and then tune-in to the GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, February 8th.
