As the Official Preservation Partner of the GRAMMY Museum, we have had a long partnership with the Museum, preserving some of their most prized physical artefacts in a climate-controlled vault. And we are thrilled to announce we will now store, manage and distribute the Museum’s media archives using our secure digital content repository technology platform.

As part of our ongoing partnership, Iron Mountain Media and Archive Services and the GRAMMY Museum have created a new series called Live From The Vault that will curate specific archived interviews and performances. It will take fans inside the vaults of some of the Museum's most iconic programs and showcase rarely seen footage.

The series is accessible on the Museum's official streaming service COLLECTION:live and will be free to all viewers. To help further increase accessibility, the Museum is using Iron Mountain Media and Archive Services' Content Localization Services (CLaaS) system to transcribe their archives into other target languages, including subtitles.

Mavis Staples is the first artist featured from her 2010 program in the Museum's Clive Davis Theatre. And a previously recorded program with Ringo Starr will be released on March 4. Keep an eye out as additional artists and special programming is announced soon.

As our SVP and GM Lance Podell explained: “Our mission is to help our customers protect and activate their archives. Our long relationship with the GRAMMY Museum is rooted in this shared dedication to preserve musical history. We’re proud to be the Museum’s Official Preservation Partner to help safeguard their diverse treasure trove and propel it into the streaming age, featuring dynamic artist interviews and performances. We’re excited about sponsoring the Live from the Vault series and its debut episode with musical pioneer Mavis Staples - what a privilege it is to hear in her own words how her upbringing and social justice convictions inspired her music.”
