Rumblefish Services Support the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards®
New York, NY (Feb. 6, 2017) – Rumblefish, the nation’s leading provider of rights administration services for the music industry, has once again collaborated with The Recording Academy®—internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards®—to license on-demand listening services for its voting members.
For the 10th consecutive year, Rumblefish, the successor of the Harry Fox Agency LLC’s Slingshot administration service, has provided licensing research and clearance service for all GRAMMY®-nominated tracks posted for voting member consideration. The time-sensitive process of researching more than 7,500 tracks to provide license clearance for approximately 4,000 songs in 76 diverse GRAMMY categories, ranging from pop to world music, was made possible by Rumblefish’s powerful database, sophisticated industry knowledge and extensive publisher relationships.
“Rumblefish is honored to support The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY voting process for the 10th consecutive year,” said Michael Simon, President, Rumblefish, and CEO of the Harry Fox Agency, LLC. “We are thrilled that our sophisticated data, technology and skills complement the wonderfully diverse group of artists, producers, recordings and compositions recognized by the GRAMMYs®.”
“For 10 years now, Rumblefish has continued to work diligently to ensure licensed music is made available to our voting members for GRAMMY consideration,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “The staff’s capacity to research and clear such a high volume of licenses required for the voting process is simply remarkable, and Rumblefish’s unparalleled network of relationships make them a premier resource for licensing and rights management services.”
