World Media Group has announced its role in the manufacturing of Reckless Kelly's album Good Luck & True Love. The album has received a nomination in the Best Recording Package category for the 53rd Annual GRAMMY awards.
"This nomination reinforces World Media Group's commitment to providing quality products and services that add value to all of our customers," said Jeff Mellentine, President and CEO. "Over the last 25 years, we have built our reputation upon consistent quality and we take pride in executing the designs of talented artists from all over the country."
The Recording Academy defines the Best Recording Package category as newly created recording packages, in any configuration, released for the first time during the current eligibility year, even if the contents were previously released. Only original artwork is eligible.
World Media Group brought to fruition the amazing design of artistic directors Sarah and Shauna Dodds of Backstage Design Studio. The duo successfully created a visual complement to Reckless Kelly's signature sound. The album cover harkens back to the posters of the snake oil salesmen and traveling side shows of late 19th century America.
Other 2012 nominees for Best Recording Package include Jay-Z & Kanye West's Watch the Throne, Arcade Fire's Scenes from the Suburbs, Chickenfoot's Chickenfoot III and J. Viewz's Rivers and Homes. The award will be presented to the winning album's artistic director. Michael Carney won in 2011 for his design of The Black Keys' album Brothers.
