A2IM Independent Voter Guide for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards is now here!

It’s that time of year again! First round ballots for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards are available online at GRAMMYPro.com today! For members of the Recording Academy, you have until October 29th at 6pm PT/9pm ET to get your votes in. Final round voting will take place later this year in December. Learn more about this year’s Grammy voting deadlines on their website here.

We strongly encourage those of you who are both voting members of the Recording Academy and A2IM members or affiliates to vote independent. Last year independent labels and artists broke records, marking the seventh year in a row that independent labels achieved a majority of the Grammy nominations.

Once again this year we have created a guide of our independent label members who have submitted for Grammys this year for you to reference at your discretion. You can view this year’s Independent Voter Guide by clicking the link here. If your releases are missing and you would like them added, please see this posting.

If you have any questions, please contact our Marketing Manager Alexandra Rosen.
