Steve Tramposch‘s A&R signing Nothing More continues its meteoric trajectory, as the band received three Grammy Award nominations this morning – the most in Rock – including Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for “Go to War,” as well as a Best Rock Album nomination for The Stories We Tell Ourselves.
The band currently has the #1 rock song in the US – “Go To War” – rising above releases from such artists as Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars, Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica.
This adds to the tremendous success the band has seen in the last few years since his discovery, including four straight Top Ten songs at rock radio and being named SiriusXM Octane’s #1 rock song/artist for two years in a row.
Steve discovered the band in Mid 2013 and immediately started the process of signing them to Eleven Seven Music through his role as VP A&R for the label, continuing his strong history of successful international artist signings, including past Grammy Award winners and nominess across genres, notably rock and alternative.
“Once in a generation comes a band who change perceptions on what can be achieved. The last one was Linkin Park, the next one is Nothing More.” – Chris Ingham, Publisher, Metal Hammer (UK)
