The Recording Academy is introducing an informative video series, GRAMMY 101. The first episode, “Start Here,” features the Academy’s Senior Vice President of Awards, Bill Freimuth, and Senior Managing Director of Member Services & Industry Relations, Laura Segura Mueller, who offer a quick guide to the nominations and voting process. In the short 3-minute video, Freimuth and Mueller cover everything from online entry to voting, citing several key dates, including the imminent July 31 deadline, when eligible musicians must join or renew in order to submit product in the 58th GRAMMYs online entry process.
The series comes as part of The Recording Academy’s move to demystify the awards process.
“We’re standing here with open arms saying, if you are a music creator, we would love to have you join The Recording Academy — no matter what genre you specialize in or country you live in,” said Freimuth. “To make this a peer award, we need as many qualified people raising their voices as possible.”
