From its first show 25 years ago, Texas Music Cafe has focused on the singular mission to give artists, at all levels, a platform to be heard. Since then hundreds of musicians, from Texas and beyond, have recorded literally thousands of hours of live performances. Some of these shows have been seen on broadcast television, but much of it has never been released.
2022 will mark our 25th anniversary, and as a part of that milestone we are releasing, for the first time, audio singles and sets curated from our catalogue of over 10,000 hours of live recordings. In the process, we are also creating the Texas Music Cafe Artist’s Fund.
35% of all revenue that Texas Music Cafe generates through digital streaming, downloads, and master use licensing will be placed into a fund that will be distributed equally among the artists who have contributed performances to the first 25 years of Texas Music Cafe and who elect to participate by signing this letter of agreement. Existing agreements for performances on Texas Music Cafe do not require any compensation, but we believe that passing along a portion of the revenue to the performers is a fitting way to celebrate. These funds and a membership report will be distributed twice a year (April and October).
