The Board of Directors of Recording Artists Development, Inc.
The RAD team includes our Board as well as the many professionals who have supported our non-profit work, the talented artists with whom we work who spread the word of our mission, refer their singer songwriter colleagues to work with us, the donors whose generosity supports our non-profit work, and the audiences, friends and fans of RAD who attend RAD events and support and cheer on RAD artists. There are so many supportive people who have made this work possible and RAD is grateful to each one of them.
“When we began RAD as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2003, we had the goal of helping emerging songwriters who otherwise would not have access to professional recording facilities and a producer to make their music and to get it out there into the world. We promised high-quality, low-cost recordings, along with artistic and career development advice. We have worked hard to meet that mission, and in addition have given away many free recordings, free studio hours, and consultations. Today RAD has served more than 120 artist and recorded over 500 songs, including EP and CD projects, in all genres and styles of music! We have worked consistently in three or more recording workshops a year, provided artistic and career advice, brought industry experts in to our workshops and panels to give advice to our artists and opened these panels up to the public, showcased the recorded music, provided performance opportunities for RAD and other artists, promoted our artists and their music and gave them a forum to promote themselves, including internet radio and tv performance opportunities and interviews, and created a network of emerging artists, musicians, engineers, producers, music industry experts, friends and fans of RAD and RAD artists. We are proud of the work and the music these talented emerging artists have accomplished. And we are proud of RAD’s service and dedication to its non-profit mission. We look forward to continuing to help even more artists: encouraging and developing creativity and providing them with a professionally produced record that they can be proud of and can show the world and use as a way to further a brilliant career! We are excited about continuing and expanding our mission and finding more ways to help RAD artists to flourish!”
