CONCORD MUSIC CONGRATULATES ITS GRAMMY®AWARD-WINNING ARTISTS

Concord Music, one of the world’s leading independent music publishing and recorded music companies, is celebrating its artists who won GRAMMY® Awards this evening at the 60th annual ceremony in New York City. Concord’s diverse roster of artists is well-represented by wins for recordings on the Stax and Concord Records labels.

Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ performed "Duck Diving Blues” during the Premiere Ceremony from their album TajMo. That album went on to win the GRAMMY® a few minutes later for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Lynell George took home the Best Album Notes award for Live at The Whisky a Go Go: The Complete Recordings (Otis Redding). This was her first nomination and therefore her first win.

One of the evening’s most rousing performances came from Concord Music artist and GRAMMY®-nominee Jazzmeia Horn who performed a tribute to American jazz legend Jon Hendricks. "Moanin’”, is a track on the album for which she was nominated, A Social Call on the Prestige label.

"The breadth of the talent at Concord Music, both our artists and our staff, never ceases to amaze me,” commented CEO Scott Pascucci. "Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners in the Concord family. We are proud to be on your team and are grateful for the opportunity to work with each of you.”

Concord Music’s publishing business was transformed in 2017 when it acquired Imagem Music Group and integrated it with Concord’s existing publishing operation, The Bicycle Music Company.

Concord Music also supports a diverse group of current composers and songwriters who are continually creating important and commercially-successful new musical works. With the Imagem acquisition, Concord Music also added Boosey & Hawkes, the world’s leading specialist classical music publisher, and the legendary Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, both of which remain as individual business units under the Concord Music umbrella.
