Weathervane Music

25 Jun
Like many great arts & cultural initiatives it all starts with a vision. Singer-songwriter and producer Brian McTear came in to my office about 6, maybe 8 months ago and laid out a very basic concept: to start a non-profit dedicated to supporting the independent music community by collaborating with independent musicians to produce and promote music and video productions. To harness the power and the opportunities that the growing community of independent artists had in front of them as a result of the ever-changing music business environment. I was down with the idea immediately, told McTear he was a genius and to go forth and do more good work. Over several months McTear baked the idea with some colleagues (including myself) and launched Weathervane Music.

To say they’ve been busy is an understatement. This month, Weathervane launched their first two projects with the Philly band East Hundred and the Austin band Sunset. Songs and videos were produced from these sessions produced by McTear and Engineer Amy Morrissey along with Quentin Stoltzfus formerly of the band Mazarin who produced the Sunset session.

Tonight at Kung Fu Necktie Weathervane Music is holding a benefit with Philly bands Papertrigger and The Armchairs. The party starts at 8PM.
