JARS OF CLAY announced that they are launching the imprint GRAY MATTERS as a part of NETTWERK MUSIC GROUP. Distribution will remain within the PROVIDENT/INTEGRITY DISTRIBUTION system. The band is leaving ESSENTIAL RECORDS after 12 years with the label.
"As we pursue the goal of making more music, and being creative in a spectrum of ways, GRAY MATTERS will be able to facilitate any of the ideas we want to bring to life,” remarks lead singer DAN HASELTINE. "This is such a great way for us to bring more art and music into being. We can collaborate with other artists and take ideas that always seemed to get caught up in the traditional label mire, and make sure those projects have a chance to be heard. This is the beginning of a very creative season. GRAY MATTERS will be a fantastic way to share our artistic philosophy, by giving other artists and creative thinkers an outlet for their ideas."
The first release will be a CHRISTMAS project, entitled "Christmas Songs," set to release OCTOBER 16.
The band has been managed by NETTWERK MANAGEMENT since 2003.
