About Austin Music Foundation

divider2

Austin Music Foundation (AMF) strengthens and connects the local music community with innovative programs that empower musicians and fuel Austin’s creative economy. AMF provides programs to help local artists navigate opportunities in the music industry and services to unite the local music community through:
– EDUCATION specifically tailored to today’s music business climate including one-on-one music consultations at our Creative Media Center
– OUTREACH efforts to determine artists’ concerns combined with public awareness initiatives to inform the wider audience about music-related issues
– UNIFICATION of local artists and music businesses to foster a sustainable music community

“The Austin Music Foundation is such an inspiring place.  As someone who was new to town, AMF took me under their wing, and I am so grateful.  Since the first day I went into AMF, the organization has given me invaluable feedback about where I am as an artist and the kind of promotional tools I need to expand my audience and build a name for myself in Austin.  I told them I wanted to concentrate on booking shows, and they not only sat down and highlighted all of the places that would be perfect for me and my music, but also personally reached out to their contacts to help make sure I would get a chance to play on an Austin stage.  Their staff is super friendly and readily available.  If you’re really ready to put yourself out there in the Austin music scene and not sure how to, make a trip to the Austin Music Foundation.  You won’t regret it.” –Drew Davis
