As the nominations for the 64th Annual GRAMMY® Awards were read today, a collection of early careers has been established for many artists and labels, including Explorer1 Music Group / EX1 Records. The full-service label – in partnership with their chart-topping artist Mammoth WVH – earned a Best Rock Song category nomination for the # 1 Active Rock radio single “Distance”. The nomination is the first for Explorer1 Music Group / Ex1 Records as well as Wolfgang Van Halen and Mammoth WVH. The nomination video for the category is available here: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CWoNk0uga3A/. The winners of the 64th edition of the GRAMMY® Awards will be announced on January 31, 2022.

“We immediately knew Distance was a special song the first time we heard it,” said Paul Woolnough, Founder and CEO of Explorer1 Music Group. “Over the weeks, then months, it became clear that the personal message and heartfelt emotion were undeniable and identifiable to anyone who had suffered a loss or heartache. We could not be more proud to partner with Wolfgang as we congratulate him on his appointment and celebrate this journey together.

As Wolfgang Van Halen shared his enthusiasm on social media, he exclaimed: “Holy shit! I have just been nominated for a GRAMMY.

By writing all the songs and performing all the instrumentation and vocals from the debut album Mammoth WVH, Wolfgang Van Halen decided to establish his own musical identity. From the opening rocking guitar riff on the opening of the album “Mr. Ed” to the catchy bass and drums on the closer album “Stone”, Mammoth WVH showcases the various musical influences that inspired Wolfgang. Songs like “Resolve”, “The Big Picture” and “Think It Over” are all sonically different from each other but unique to what Mammoth WVH is. The album has spawned two # 1 Active Rock singles to date: his father’s tribute “Distance” and the rock anthem “Don’t Back Down”. Mammoth WVH made her television debut of the first single “Distance” last month as an electric performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and an exclusive acoustic arrangement on NBC News TODAY.
