Here's a letter from the Grammy's endorsing ICSG. We are now the Tri Chord Music Group. Our goal is to bring to you the same integrity and service as we have been noted for. We look forward to serving you.
As Senior Executive Director of The Recording Academy, a member based organization comprised of music professionals and music makers, I couldn’t be happier to learn about the International Christian Songwriters Guild.
While most are familiar with The Recording Academy because of its history celebrating music through the GRAMMY® Awards for over 50 years, The Recording Academy continues its rich legacy and ongoing growth as the premier outlet for honoring achievements in the recording arts and supporting the music community.
The GRAMMYs are the only peer-presented award to honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency, and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position.
But similar to the International Christian Songwriters Guild’s mission, The Recording Academy works within the music and recording communities addressing its needs through education, advocacy, professional development, and events. In addition, the Chapter serves as a conduit for other members to meet, network and tackle the concerns of the recording industry both nationally and locally.
We look forward to working closely with ICSG’s members and co-producing Professional Education and Networking Events with this esteemed group. Ultimately, as our membership reflects more inclusivity within this thriving music community, we can continue to grow the GRAMMY Awards categories in this genre. This is a very exciting time and the opportunities are endless.
We support the International Christian Songwriters Guild and extend an invitation to all of you to join our music family. The Recording Academy is the preeminent music organization for all music makers representing every style of music. Consider our organization - YOUR organization. One Community – One Voice.
