Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The US is the biggest market for digital music consumption, with average yearly revenue at $6.7bn US dollars. (Music Wave, 2021). However, the majority of artists find it very difficult to make a sustainable living from their profession. Live music sales have dropped by 77% since 2019, leaving artists in a difficult position to find paid work. Many professional musicians and emerging artists alike have been forced to leave the industry altogether. Dallas is home to exceptional artists with the potential for major success. We realize that not every artist will be signed by a major label or land a major deal. We strive to help artists become more sustainable at every level and to give exposure to those who may just land that big deal.

Dallas Music Network Show

The Dallas Music Network Show is a professionally recorded and produced music show that features gifted artists primarily from the DFW area. Each artist is featured performing original tunes. The featured artist also has a sit down interview with our show host. Artists are able to use their professionally recorded videos on social media pages, websites, as well as in their EPK (electronic promotional kit). We stream and promote each show. All is done at no cost to the artist. DMN has supported artists of all ages, genres, economic backgrounds. When needed we assemble professional bands for artists and create top notch music arrangements. Through this program we have not only supported DFW artists, we have also connected a wide range of talent through a vast network of instrumentalists, producers, arrangers, sound engineers, editors, lighting designers, graphic designers, and full film production staff from camera operators, switchers, to directors.
