The 56th Annual Grammy Awards are happening this Sunday night, and a couple of Indiegogo crowdfunders have been nominated!
Hiatus Kaiyote crowdfunded its U.S. tour last year, including funding their way to SXSW. They are nominated for Best R&B Performance for their single Nekamarra, which features Q-Tip from the legendary group, Tribe Called Quest. They are self-described as “multi-dimensional, polyrhythmic gangster shit.” Check out their campaign on Indiegogo!
Geneseo’s album, Automatic Music Can be Fun, is nominated for the Best Recording Package, and they’re currently using Indiegogo to crowdfund their way to the Grammys. They have surpassed their goal, and they’re up against David Bowie, Metallica and Jay Z! According to The Buffalo News, Geneseo “may be the indiest indie record ever to be nominated for a Grammy.” Get a taste of their eclectic sound on their current campaign page.
We wish both the best of luck at the Grammys!
