You might’ve missed it amidst the celebrity spectacle that is the televised portion of the Grammy Awards, but for the past few years independently-distributed artists have really been representing — many of them winning Grammys, and many more, of course, receiving nominations.
CD Baby is proud to be carrying the following 2017 Grammy-nominated albums, listed here with their award category:
- John Burke – Orogen (Best New Age Album)
- Trio da Paz – 30 (Best Latin Jazz Album)
- Brian Lynch – Medera Latino (Best Latin Jazz Album)
- Jose Lugo & Guasábara Combo – Dónde Están (Best Tropical Latin Album)
- Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars – Gulfstream (Best American Roots Song, and Best Regional Roots Album)
- Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands – The Hazel and Alice Sessions (Best Bluegrass Album)
- Vasti Jackson – The Soul of Jimmie Rodgers (Best Traditional Blues Album)
- Ladysmith Black Mambazo – Walking in the Footsteps of Our Fathers (Best World Music Album)
- C.F. Kip Winger –Conversations with Nijinsky (Best Contemporary Classical Composition)
Congrats to all of these talented artists! And a special word for Jose Lugo who passed away last year from cancer, and who was honored in 2017 with a win in the Tropical Latin Album category.
