Recording artist GAVIN DEGRAW is teaming up with brother singer/songwriter JOEY DEGRAW to launch a new independent record label, NATIONAL UNDERGROUND RECORDS. The new label will be a brand extension of their successful lower MANHATTAN rock ‘n roll bar of the same name, which has been providing a platform for up-and-coming local musicians to showcase their work since opening its doors.
"I have been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to make the kind of music that I love," GAVIN said. "With NATIONAL UNDERGROUND RECORDS, we will be able to give other talented artists the same opportunity."
JOEY DEGRAW’s "Say Something Strong" will be NATIONAL UNDERGROUND's first release, set for AUGUST 18th, 2009. "My brother and I want to show off the truly credible artists that perform in our venue," JOEY said. "With the NATIONAL UNDERGROUND brand, credibility is paramount. We want to provide an outlet for real artists to get exposure."
