ACADEMY ADVOCATES FOR CREDITS PROJECT

On 10/14 Academy members will meet virtually with members of Congress to discuss legislation that would have a direct impact on America's recording artists, songwriters and studio professionals; with nearly 200 meetings with congressional offices anticipated, members will focus on ensuring that the people behind the records are fairly compensation for their work.

A day later, artists will be encouraged to celebrate their collaborators' behind-the-scenes work on recordings. This year's campaign features a short film, narrated by Academy board Secretary/Treasurer Om'Mas Keith, illustrating what goes into making a record.

“It takes a village to create a recording and as an organization that serves to support all music creators, we invite our peers to join us in spotlighting the many music professionals behind our favorite songs," said Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy. "While we celebrate the music professionals behind the scenes, we also recognize the importance of fighting for fair treatment of creators. We're proud of the evolution of Behind the Record to include an advocacy element this year as we continue our ongoing work to ensure that all music creators flourish."

Artists can create Credit Covers for a single track or album. Covers will live in a gallery here.

For the third year, Jaxsta is providing credits for Warner Music, Sony Music, Universal Music Group and Merlin releases.
