UMPG says it has a writerly interest in no fewer than 80 Grammy nominations in 35 categories among this week's batch. Where to start? Well, how about Adele and Justin Bieber? then there's Keith Urban, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Demi Lovato, Alabama Shakes, Metallica, Coldplay and other high-profile artists, not to mention writer/producers Jeff Bhasker and Benny Blanco. UMPG tunesmiths contributed to four of the five Album of the Year contenders.
Quoth Jody Gerson (pictured here with Bhasker): "I’m so proud of our artists and writers who have been recognized this year with nominations from The Recording Academy. The artistic integrity, strength, and breadth of our roster is reflected across the genre-spanning categories we have represented. I wish all nominees much luck on Grammy night."
