Give Fans the Credit!



Last month, the Recording Academy officially launched a campaign to "Give Fans the Credit". In short, most digital music services provide very little information about the music they distribute. Consumers can see the artist name, song title, corresponding album...and that's about it.

WHERE ARE THE DIGITAL LINER NOTES? 

For so many fans growing up listening to physical music products (vinyl, cassette, CD, etc), liner notes were a major part of the experience. They helped fans discover music by connecting the dots between artists, producers, songwriters and musicians. The Recording Academy wants to bring this experience into the digital age. Fans benefit from knowing who the key "players" are behind their favorite music, and these "players" benefit from increased exposure through the work they have such an integral role in creating.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Sign the Recording Academy's petition and spread the word to every fan and musician you know. Help give producers, engineers, musicians and vocalists the well-earned credit they deserve! http://www.grammy.com/credits
