The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will take place this Sunday (January 25) featuring all of today’s favorite performers and then some. Well as far as I am concerned – it is not the fact that Madonna will be performing live at the event but the fact that crowdfunders from global platform Indiegogo have a pair of nominees.
Last spring “Help Hiatus Kaiyote Get To USA” crowdfunded $16,225 on a goal of $15,000. Hiatus Kaiyote is a band from Melbourne, Australia that formed in 2011. They were looking to expand their audience and reach by performing at SXSW where they had the opportunity to connect with industry players. I guess things are working out for the group.
The other Grammy nominee is the band Geneseo. Their first and only release was nominated for a Grammmy and they needed the funds to make it there. Their campaign closes tomorrow but they are well past their $3000 goal.
Best of luck to both of the groups.
