About the Chapter

Since November 1995, The Recording Academy Florida Chapter has been representing the Florida and Puerto Rico music communities and connecting artists with the shared vision of making their own unique mark in music. Since then, the Chapter has been an integral part of the region's music industry, expanding its presence throughout a state that has one of the most diverse, talented, and fastest-growing music communities in the country.

While the Miami area brings a wide range of Latin American musical influences, the Chapter reaches  music communities throughout the state including Gainesville, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa.  Traditional and southern rock roots grow deep, anchored by artists such as Creed, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Matchbox Twenty, Molly Hatchet, Tom Petty, the Outlaws and more.  Adding to Florida’s music mix is a constantly evolving urban scene represented by nationally-recognized artists including Flo Rida, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and T-Pain.  Florida is also a key market for the EDM community and boasts both the Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

The Florida Chapter, in partnership with its local elected leadership, delivers programming and networking opportunities to artists, musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and other music industry professionals throughout Florida.

On the right you will see our upcoming events. Please take a few minutes and explore not only what the Florida Chapter is doing, but what all the Chapters have to offer in the way of professional development and opportunities for our members.
