The launch of NASHVILLE and SIOUX FALLS-based MOSAIC ARTISTY GROUP was announced this week. The group is designed as an alliance to serve artists and musicians as a collective network, not as a traditional record label
Artists that will work with MOSAIC have established fan-bases, a solid understanding of the music industry and a drive to have more control in their own careers.
“I’ve always strived to help artists establish a bigger platform, while helping them focus on partnerships with non-profits,” said founding partner TJ ROGERS. "PETE [EEKHOFF] and I were talking one day, and it turns out that he has had a similar vision and actually already had a business plan for a similar model ready to go. Over the past year, this vision and concept turned into MOSIAC and has grown into something bigger and better than we ever dreamed possible.”
MOSAIC is set up to meet the individual needs of each artist in the network. Projects will be matched with focused investors who are seeking to fund specific styles of projects and distribution will be done direct to the major stores and digital outlets. With the team’s knowledge in all areas of the industry, artists will have the advantages of a label, marketing team, publishing company, management and artist development.
MOSAIC ARTISTRY GROUP is preparing to release its debut artist DANA JORGENSEN and his latest project "EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL" on AUGUST 16th. JORGENSEN's first single, “Let Me Be the One,” is going for adds now. Other artists currently signed to the collective include AARON CRIDER and NEELY along with representation of producer/guitarist BRIAN OAKS.
TJ ROGERS and PETE EEKHOFF are behind the project. ROGERS has been in the music business for over 10 years and worked with some of the largest musical acts and top industry executives in Christian music today. He began his career working as a booking agent for the JEFF ROBERTS AGENCY and formed BRIDGE STREET ARTIST AGENCY. ROGERS met EEKHOFF when EEKHOFF'S band JONAH 33 was signed with JEFF ROBERTS AGENCY. EEKHOFF started out in the music business doing evenings for KDCR/SIOUX CENTER, IA. After leaving the band, he founded a booking and management company that provided services to several touring artists within the Christian music industry.
