A2IM encourages everyone from the independent music community who performs, produces, mixes, engineers, or is involved creatively with music to join The Recording Academy and, if you qualify, become voting members and participate in this year’s Grammy Awards 1st round nomination process.
If you qualify as a voting member and want to join in order to vote in the first round nomination process, you’d need to be approved as a member by September 15.
Make sure you forward this to your artist, producer, and songwriter contacts as well and encourage all independents to become members of The Recording Academy.
In the last 3 years, independents have experienced unprecedented success in terms of both nominations and awards. Let’s keep that momentum going in 2011. The 1st round ballots will be distributed to voting members of The Recording Academy on October 12.
