The 55th Grammy Awards are scheduled to take place on February 10th on CBS.  This year, as in years past, artists on the Earbits roster are strongly represented as nominees for awards in various categories.  The Earbits artists nominated by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences come from diverse backgrounds and genres— from pop superstar Paul McCartney to jazz percussion mastermind Bobby Sanabria.  We even have an artist nominated for “Record Of The Year,” the award ceremony’s highest honors.  Check out the entire list of Grammy-nominated Earbits artists from this year below, and click to listen to each one.

Lots of new albums coming out this Tuesday.

Bahamas— Barchords

Feist’s touring guitarist writes and records under the moniker Bahamas.

Die Antwoord— Ten$ion

South African hip-hop crew returns with a disc full of horror/party songs.

Dr. Dog— Be The Void

It’s hard to believe Dr. Dog has released so much music, but Be The Void is their 7th album.  It should be good.

The Fray— Scars & Stories

My go-to braggy celeb story is that I once drove the drummer of The Fray from L.A.’s Galen Center to Burbank so that he could buy drumsticks.  This is his band’s new album.

Most artists struggle to master one genre.  Since the late 1960s, Steve Gadd’s been consistently tackling them all.  Gadd is a professional drummer, perhaps one of the world’s most well-renowned players of the instrument.  He’s appeared on albums with Joe Cocker, Paul Simon, Paul McCartney Kate Bush and hundreds of other popular and critically-acclaimed artists of various styles and ages.
