Take A Bow, 57th Grammy Award Nominees!


grammy-2015T’is the season… of awards! With that, Grammy nominations have just come in — and we couldn’t be more excited for our highlighted Orchard-repped artists and labels.

Between Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Ruthie Foster, The Stanley Clarke Band and more, so many great releases were unleashed into the world this year. The San Francisco Symphony gave us an incredible rendition of the musical classic West Side Story, Light In The Attic took us back to the late 60s with Lee Hazlewood, and Round Sky, Raveolution, Domo and Sounds True rep’ed hard in New Age. These (as well as many more who didn’t get nods this time around) deserve every bit of praise they get.

The awards go down February 8, 2015. Until then, here’s the full list of nominees from The Orchard:
