    Warner Music Finland´s Artists Score a Record Breaking 43 Nominations in The ‘Finnish Grammy’ Awards

    Warner´s artists hold all the nominations in the categories “Song of the Year” and “Female Artist of the Year”

    Artists signed to Warner Music Finland represent almost half the nominations for the 2017 Emma Awards, the local equivalent of the US Grammy Awards. 

    All of the nominees for Female Artist of the Year and Song of the Year are Warner Music artists.

    Jonas Siljemark, President Warner Music Nordics, says: “Congratulations to all our artists nominated for an Emma Award.  It’s an incredible achievement for them and for the team at Warner Music Finland that works so hard to support them.  To have our artists account for almost half the nominations reflects the ongoing success we are having in this exciting market.”

    Niko Nordström, Vice President, Warner Music Nordics and Managing Director of Warner Music Finland, adds: “I’m so proud of all our artists who have been put forward for Emma Awards.  To have our artists account for almost half the nominations, spanning genres from hip hop to schlager, shows the strength in diversity of our local A&R activity.  Good luck to all our nominees.”

    Warner Music Finland’s success is also reflected in year-end figures from Spotify showing that JVG are the most streamed local act and have the most streamed local track with ‘Hehkuu’.  Other successes included the fact that Cheek’s Alpha Omega was the most streamed local album, SANNI was the most streamed female artist and twenty one pilots were the most streamed international artist in Finland in 2016.
