Rumblefish Services Support 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards®

Rumblefish, a division of The Harry Fox Agency and 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 11th consecutive year, Rumblefish 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 6,000 tracks to provide license clearance for approximately 3,500 songs in 75 diverse GRAMMY categories, ranging from pop to world music, was made possible by Rumblefish’s powerful database, sophisticated industry knowledge and extensive publisher relationships.

“Once again, Rumblefish is honored to support the Recording Academy’s GRAMMY voting process,” said Michael Simon, President, Rumblefish, and CEO of the Harry Fox Agency, LLC. “Our passion for the music industry, along with our unmatched resources and sophisticated data, make us uniquely positioned to oversee a project of this magnitude.”

“For more than 10 years, the Rumblefish team has worked diligently to ensure licensed music is made available to our voting members for GRAMMY consideration,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “Their commitment, coupled with content diversification and global reach, solidifies their position as a trusted partner for licensing and rights management services.”
