Ziggy Marley + Allen Stone are Looking for This Year’s GRAMMY Amplifier
This Sunday, Feb. 8, music fans across the country are celebrating some of the greatest artists in the industry at the 57th GRAMMY Awards. And while everyone loves seeing their favorite band receive a coveted GRAMMY, there's no denying that there is a huge pool of talent that has yet to be discovered.
Until now. Ziggy Marley, Allen Stone and the Band Perry are partnering with Mark Ronson to find the this year's winners of the annual GRAMMY Amplifier program.
Ronson serves as the 2015 GRAMMY Amplifier Ambassador while Marley, Stone and the Band Perry are curating the talent. So where does the talent actually come from?
That’s simple: You. Or, someone you know. You submit your track to GRAMMYAmplifier.com for consideration, and the more amplified it gets -- the more plays and shares it receives -- the higher you’ll be elevated. The Top 25 most amplified tracks will be reviewed by the GRAMMY Amplifier curators, and then they’ll pick their favorites. After that, Ronson will whittle the list down to the Top 3.
If you're lucky enough to be one of the Top 3 winners of the GRAMMY Amplifier program this year, you'll receive one of the following:
- A studio recording session with a GRAMMY winning producer
- Filming and starring in their own music video with a noted director
- Securing an opening spot for a noted musician and/or at a music festival
This year’s edition of the GRAMMY Amplifier program marks the beginning of a new three-year relationship between Hyundai -- the official vehicle partner of the GRAMMY Awards -- and the Recording Academy. Artists have already been submitting their music for about week now, and if you want to get in on the action, head over to GRAMMY Amplifier's official website at this location.
If you're not sure whether you're ready to submit your music, let us help: Do it! Take the chance and let your music be heard. Who knows, you might end up like last year's winners: Bonavox, Jessica Faith and Eyango. Check out their stories in the video below and get amplified!
