2015 GRAMMY Amplifier Winners Announced
The dreams of three music-makers came true when the winners of 2015 GRAMMY Amplifier program were announced. Each winner will partake in a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.
Chinah Blac, who won the Alternative category, will receive the "Music Video” experience — which means she gets to film and star in her own music with a notable director. Americana winner Wes-Tone will receive the "Studio Recording Session" with a GRAMMY-winning producer. Cramer, the R&B winner, earned the "Opening Slot” for a noted musicians tour or a festival.
All of these opportunities are absolutely incredible — just ask one of last year's winners! Eyango, who won the Studio Recording Session in 2014, collaborated with GRAMMY Award winning producer Mark Ronson.
“As an artist to innovate, you need to surprise yourself. Getting to collaborate with Mark Ronson… I couldn’t have imagined that one year ago,” Eyango said.
The 2015 winners were announced on March 17 during a performance at the Rolling Stone Stage: Austin music showcase at SXSW. This marks the third year of the GRAMMY Amplifier: A Hyundai Music Initiative.
Three-time GRAMMY winner Mark Ronson served as the 2015 GRAMMY Amplifier Ambassador. Along with the Band Perry, Ziggy Marley and Allen Stone, Ronson helped determine this year's winners.
