Welcome to VICE News’ new culture series “Currently Obsessed,” where tastemakers from the worlds of music, film, TV, art, and public life tell us what they’re consuming — or what’s consuming them — right now, and why.

How Grammy Nominee Brent Faiyaz Built His Music Career Off Streaming (HBO)

When Grammy nominee Brent Faiyaz and his manager, Ty Baisden, were offered a record deal with a quarter million dollar advance, they walked away. Instead, they opted to go independent.

New artists usually seek notoriety by signing with a major label. But the contracts often leave them with few rights to their music and little-to-no longterm earning power. In recent years, however, more and more artists have decided to buck signing with a label and pursue their independence, according to veteran music attorney Richard Grabel.

The best contract that Faiyaz and Baisden reviewed, for example, gave them 18 percent of the royalties — money paid by the record label to the artist for each time a song is played or purchased.

After scooping up a Grammy nomination for his performance on GoldLink’s “Crew,” Faiyaz and Baisden chose the indie route. They set up their own company, Lost Kids LLC, and invested $30,000 out of their own pockets for a debut album. Now, they use data from streaming platforms like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music to build their fan base. Knowing who plays Faiyaz’s music — and where — helped the duo sell out a tour across the United States and Europe.

We Talked To Nothing More, The Grammy-Nominated Band Nobody’s Heard Of

If you want a Grammy nomination, your best shot is to either be a veteran (see: Bob Dylan), or be so popular at the moment that your music is inescapable (see: Cardi B). But those guidelines don’t seem to apply to Nothing More.

In fact, nobody seems to know who they are.

Despite that, the four-man hard rock outfit from San Antonio, TX have managed to snag nominations in all three Rock categories – putting them ahead of fellow 2017 nominees Foo Fighters, Metallica, and Chris Cornell.

Most of the music press was caught off guard by their nominations. VICE News Tonight visited the band in their hometown to find out why this was the first time most people were hearing about them.
