Pop Rock singer Gavin Degraw is teaming up with his brother Joey Degraw to form their own lablel National Underground Records. If the name sounds familiar it’s because it shares the same name as the popular New York night spot owned by the Degraw brothers. The family affair doesnt end there for the brothers Degraw. Joey is planning to use the new label to boost his already popular independent music efforts. Like his brother Gavin, Joey has released music and played promoting it around the world. His efforts have paid off. Joey ended up selling 40 thousand coppies without the help of a record company.
“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.” “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.”
Expect the first label supported effort from Joey Degraw to be released August 18th.. In the mean time, if you find yourself in the New York city area, be sure to stop in to Gavin and Joey’s night spot!
