Rumblefish Services Support the 61st 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 12th 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 5,800 tracks to provide license clearance for over 3,000 songs in 76 diverse  GRAMMY categories, ranging from pop to world music, was made possible by Rumblefish’s powerful database, sophisticated industry knowledge and extensive publisher relationships.

In addition, Rumblefish leveraged its connectivity with independent music publishers to track down shares in varied categories that spanned from rap and blues to instrumental and new age.

“Each year, the Rumblefish team works seamlessly to ensure licensed music is made available to our voting members for GRAMMY consideration,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “Their passion and knowledge, along with their unparalleled resources and reach, not only accelerates the intricate process but solidifies their position as best in the business for licensing and rights management services.”

“Rumblefish is proud to continue its tradition of supporting the Recording Academy’s GRAMMY voting process,” said Michael Simon, President and CEO of The Harry Fox Agency. “As the trusted service provider for more than a decade, the alignment reinforces Rumblefish’s position as home to the world’s largest, most diverse and authoritative database of musical works, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the project.”
