For Immediate Release
“Hip-Hop Organization G.A.ME Pays Artists”
Grassroots Artists MovEment (G.A.ME) has raised the standard of supporting artists by creating several new initiatives to help artists create meaningful recordings and performances. In their ninth year, G.A.ME has begun taking on the huge responsibility of addressing radio rotation and making the job of being an artist more hospitable. The organization begins with covering transportation and food costs for artists performing at events around the country whenever the promoter or organizer is unable pick up the tap.
“You don’t ask sanitation workers to pick up your garbage for free, nor do you ask your painter to paint for free. Why do some expect artists to perform for free.” said Executive Director, Omowale Adewale.
G.A.ME is committed to revamping how the music industry treats Hip-Hop and other recording/performing artists. Through this organization artists can find studio access, video producers, album duplication services, and a whole lot more. Artists debuting new music can receive grants for album mixing and mastering and funding for live showcases through G.A.ME’s no-interest loan program.
On Saturday October 9, 2010, G.A.ME wants to hear from the public. A mixer and networking party will begin at 6pm, followed by a 7pm meeting, and then a return to mixing and networking at 8:30pm. This is a free event at Avalon Rooftop at 11 E. 1st Street & Bowery in Manhattan, NY. Food and beverages will be served free. Artists and supporters of Hip-Hop are encouraged to attend. Attendees must RSVP to email@example.com or call 718-690-3393 for more information. Donations are greatly appreciated.
