Introducing This Is New York, Vol.5

Today, GrandLife Hotels releases the latest volume of its famed music compilation, This is New York, Vol. 5.

Since GrandLife’s foundation, serving guests and bringing them great music have been at the core of everything we do. We’ve hosted some of the world’s greatest bands, served up weekly DJ sets for over a decade and thrown some of downtowns most notorious parties both at Soho Grand and The Roxy. Pop, rock, jazz, blues, indie, hip-hop, soul, funk, electronica – you name it, we’re likely playing it.

To celebrate our affinity with music, we created “This Is New York” – a series of albums devoted to identifying musicians who we see as innovators, icons, and game changers. This is New York (fondly referred to as TINY) has been a passion project led by GrandLife Hotels’ President, Tony Fant, who this year hand selected each song on the compilation.

This is New York, Vol. 5 features tracks from artists like Angel Olsen, Warpaint, Blood Orange, Holy Ghost!, and Chairlift – musicians whose respective sounds evoke everything that downtown Manhattan represents.

Treat yourself (and your ears) this week and digitally purchase the mix via Google Play and Amazon Music.

Keep an eye out for the official launch of TINY 5 which takes place in September during New York Fashion Week. Full details will be made available closer to the day.
