News from HDMG: 501c(3) Designation Arrived!

Welcome to Howlin’ Dog Music Group -
Same Great Music, and More!

At Howlin’ Dog Music Group, or HDMG, we believe in the power of collective action to find new and sustainable ways of supporting the music we love – we can't imagine a world without these troubadours and the color they bring to our world!. Our mission is to create a new model of how to keep music alive and thriving as old avenues are no longer viable, and we invite you to join us in making a lasting impact.

Why Support HDMG?
The music business is an ever-shifting maze that changes and gets more complex every day. The goal of Howlin' Dog Records has always been to help artists we love get their music out into the world. But that ever-changing landscape requires new methods and capabilities to continue to work today – therefore we have launched the non-profit Howlin' Dog Music Group. By becoming a donor to HDMG, you're not just giving a donation – you're investing in the future of the music industry and the artists you love.

Here's why your support matters

Recorded music has morphed from something that we purchase to a service that we expect, like turning on a tap to get a glass of water. Artists love the worldwide reach that provides, but none of the artists in our sphere can live on the income streaming services provide. We will continue to explore alternative and supplemental ways for artists to support themselves and get their music out, as well as help them navigate the current complex world of digital distribution. Our network includes industry leaders who provide a learning community so that independent artists and others can build skills to succeed.

Music is everywhere in our world – TV, movies, advertising – HDMG will also help artists learn and explore the world of licensing in order to take advantage of those income streams. CDs still continue to be important for our independent artists, and it's critical that fans purchase CDs! We support artists to produce high-quality CDs and other physical media at low cost.

Another focus of HDMG going forward will be to create an archive of the music of both our artists and of music of the region in general, to preserve access to this music for generations to come.

This new structure of HDMG will also allow our organization to be sustainable into the future, when the founders must step back.

Join Us Today!

By supporting HDMG, you're not just giving to a cause – you're becoming a part of a movement. A movement that believes in the power, heart, promise, and legacy of regional music and its critical importance in our world.
