The Recording Academy® and OneOf, the green NFT marketplace built for music and backed by 28-time GRAMMY Award® winner Quincy Jones, have teamed up for an exclusive partnership to release NFTs that will commemorate the 64th, 65th and 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards®. Details on the NFT collections will be revealed in early January 2022 ahead of the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards, taking place on Jan. 31, 2022. The NFTs will be released as collectibles and experiences celebrating the GRAMMY Awards, nominees and recipients, including tokens designed by world famous crypto artists using the iconic GRAMMY Award itself. A portion of the proceeds of the NFTs will go to the Recording Academy’s scholarship fund.
"In considering an NFT partner, we were committed to working with a like-minded organization that had an artist-first approach and we have undoubtedly found that in OneOf," said Panos A. Panay, Co-President of the Recording Academy. "As an Academy, we are always looking for ways to help artists discover new forms of creative expression, while also creating new ways of income generation and ways for fans to interact with the artists that they love. OneOf shares that vision, and we are proud to work with a sustainable NFT company."
"For 63 years, the GRAMMYS and the Recording Academy have been the premiere representation, celebration, and advocacy partner for the artists, songwriters and professionals who create the music we love," said Lin Dai, Adam Fell, & Joshua James, Co-Founders of OneOf. "If used to their full potential, NFTs will empower the music industry in a way few other technologies ever have. It is our great honor to work with this prestigious organization to help shepherd this bright future to the industry."
"I’ve been advocating for artists my entire career, so any technology that serves to help musicians make a living is something I fully stand behind," said Quincy Jones. "It excites me to know that OneOf is working to bring more money into the ecosystem, and simultaneously, I’ve been with the GRAMMYs/the Recording Academy since its inception. So, it makes my soul smile to see OneOf partnering with this wonderful organization, and I look forward to seeing the good they will do for artists."
