Peruvian musician Gian Marco was nominated for Best Singer-Songwriter Album and Song of the Year at the 2015 Latin Grammys.
Gian Marco’s 2015 album “#Libre” was nominated for Best Singer-Songwriter Album and the album’s top hit, “Vida de mi Vida,” was nominated for Song of the Year.
“Very happy and grateful!!! Thanks to all of you for accompanying me on this journey of music!” Gian Marco posted to his Facebook page after the announcement.
Gian Marco has won three Best Singer-Songwriter Grammy awards for “Resucitar” in 2005, “Dias Nuevos” in 2011 and “20 Años” in 2012. “Vida de mi Vida” will have to beat nine other nominees for Gian Marco to win his first Song of the Year award.
Gian Marco is not the only artist representing Peru at the 2015 Latin Grammys. Andean-style guitarist Ciro Hurtado’s 2015 album, “Ayahuasca Dream,” was nominated for Best Folk Album.
Mexican singer-songwriter Leonel Garcia led this year’s artists with six nominations including nominations for Best Singer-Songwriter Album with “Amor Futuro” and Song of the Year for “¿Recuerdas?”. Fellow Mexican recording artist Natalia Lafourcade comes in second with five nominations including Song of the Year contender, “Hasta la Raiz.”
