Music Veterans Launch Philanthropic Record Label

The Giving Groove is a new record label founded by Philadelphia-based music industry veterans with a mission to help artists realize their musical vision while giving back to the community. This independent label is a full-service independent operation that offers artist support at every step of the album release process-from development, recording, and distribution, to package design, to international promotion. The label features a diverse roster of local and national artists including The Dead Milkmen, OOLALA, Hoots & Hellmouth, and DECONTROL, with additional bands being announced this summer. Philanthropy is at the core of The Giving Groove's mission: Under the label's "artist friendly, socially conscious" model, half of album proceeds after taxes go to the artist, and half are donated to a music-related 501(C)3 nonprofit of that artist's choice.
