It looks like Aloe Blacc is ready to be the judge and jury…
The 35-year-old Panamanian American singer-songwriter will form part of the voting panel of this year’s CLIO Music Awards, a prestigious international awards competition for marketing and advertising in the music industry. Now in its second year, the competition is accepting entries through April 3.
Blacc is quite familiar with the CLIOs; his single “The Man” earned a Clio Award last year, and he performed at the ceremony last year. He joins 22 other music insiders in the voting panel, including Tom Corson, president and COO of RCA Records; Sylvia Rhone, president of Epic Records; and Daniel Glass, founder and President of Glassnote Entertainment Group.
“CLIO Music is about honoring the incredible work of the people who propel the music business through creative efforts, from artist promotion to the expert ways in which music is integrated in advertising,” CLIO president Nicole Purcell said in a statement. “It’s the talent of these creative leaders that connects people to brands, motivates them to join causes and inspires them to expand their horizons through music.”
The new CLIO roles add onto an already-busy spring for Blacc; he’s set to perform at the Playboy Jazz Festival in early June.
