Boarded Up Foundation
Boarded Up Music
Boarded Up Music was the initial program started within our foundation. Boarded Up Music focuses on music video production, promotion, and preservation.
Through Boarded Up Music, we accept 3-4 artists a month to be featured on our Youtube Channel and produce a live music video series for them. (For more information on this program and to submit yourself for consideration, check out our Submissions page). These videos are filmed at Louie Louie's Piano Bar in Deep Ellum of Dallas, and are then edited in-house by our team. Once their series is ready to promote, we upload them to our YouTube channel, as well as across our various social media platforms. We work our hardest to promote the artists; their new music, future shows etc. for the indefinite future, not only for the scope of time that we are actively uploading their series.
Working on broadening our ability to promote artists, Boarded Up Foundation has implemented a system to create basic websites for artists that do not have one, in efforts to establish and promote their brand.
Additionally, our YouTube channel allows us to catalog and preserve all of this music for future generations of music lovers to explore and enjoy.
All of these elements allow us to provide what we can for independent artists to aid in their careers. We are always brainstorming and planning new ways that we can do more for artists and we hope to add more elements to our services as our foundation grows. We personally feel the importance of our foundation because we understand the reality of expenses that come with doing all of this work yourself, especially for independent artists. We also trust that leaving these artists with their own live music videos provides them with a vital resource that can lead to more opportunity and growth in the future.
