PreSonus Audio Electronics Inc., a leading supplier of high quality professional audio recording and processing products, sponsored the most recent “Meet the Recording Academy” event in Baton Rouge, La. During the event, the Academy’s Senior Executive Director John Hornyak spoke to attendees about how to join and participate in the Recording Academy’s programs, as well as the Grammy Awards process.

A short film was presented covering Louisiana musicians, including an excerpt on how the name "Grammy" was created. In a national contest to name the award, Jay E. Danna of New Orleans was chosen as the winner for submitting the name "Grammy." She said she came up with it because when she used to listen to her gramophone (record player), her mother used to tell her to “Turn down that grammy!”

In addition, Baton Rouge–based band the Benjy Davis Project announced that they have signed with Rock Ridge Music and plan to release their album Dust nationally (with distribution via Alternative Distribution Alliance or ADA) on November 4, 2008.

“PreSonus is very proud to support the Recording Academy,” says PreSonus' director of marketing, Brad Zell. “They have done so much through MusiCares for musicians that were victims of Hurricane Katrina, and continue to focus on developing and preserving the art of music for all of us.”
