Another Grammis nomination for Salem

Along with Vincent Pontare, Magnus Lidehäll and Seinabo Sey, Salem has been nominated in the best composer category at this year's Swedish Grammis awards which will take place on Wednesday 24th February.

This nomination is of course for their work on Seinabo's album "Pretend", which has also been nominated for best album, whilst Seinabo has a nomination for best artist and best pop.  I have a good feeling that she is going to do very well at these awards.

Magnus is also nominated in the best producer category, whilst I also want to mention that two songs co-written by Salem and Vincent are also nominated in the best song category: "Waiting For Love" by Avicii, and "Sun Is Shining" by Axwell and Ingrosso, the latter which also featured the vocals of Salem and Vincent.

Good luck to all of you at the awards!
