Give Fans the Credit

Nick's picture

The Recording Academy has started a new campaign to enhance fans' discovery of new music by ensuring all music creators are credited for their work on digitally released recordings.  This means you can look at who the producer or mix engineer on a particular recording on your iPod (or other player) right from its screen.  You could discover other albums by a particular producer you like or discover several of your favorite albums are by the same producer and find other recording by him.  As physical copies of recording become less and less common, so do the liner notes where this information is usually found.  That's why it is important to have this informaiton included in the tracks downloaded form which ever service you choose to by your music from. 

 

The honorary ambassadors from the Recording Academy include, 12-time GRAMMY-winning producer T Bone Burnett; GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lamont Dozier; singer/songwriter/percussionist Sheila E.; singer/songwriter Skylar Grey; five-time GRAMMY-winning producer/songwriter Jimmy Jam; two-time GRAMMY-winning producer/songwriter RedOne; and three-time GRAMMY-winning producer Don Was.
