Appearing on Texas Music Cafe®
Perks of Performing at TMC
Did you know that TMC holds one of the State of Texas’ largest music archives? TMC has more than 10,000 hours of video archived and is made available to the Center for Texas Music History at Texas State University in San Marcos Texas.
By performing, your recordings are added to the archive. This archive will be preserved, studied, and protected for generations.
TMC has a 25 year track record generating income and exposure for artists appearing on the program.
When you perform as a featured artist on TMC we edit your video and remix the audio before adding the final videos of your performance to our 25 year archive and showcase your performances on our streaming channels(YouTube etc.). Each live video recording carries significant costs in terms of the camera crew, editing, and the final rendering of the video. The video product we create would cost an artist around $5k to purchase and as a featured artist you pay nothing for production of the video.
After your performance, we remix the audio into a digital live album for distribution through our partnering record label on the top 28 streaming platforms (at no cost to the artist).
The Artist keeps 100% ownership of their songs. Every time your song gets played on more than 28 different TMC associated platforms, you get paid by your performing rights organization (ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC) for those plays.
TMC splits the streaming royalties evenly from the recordings we make.
1/3 to the Artist, 1/3 to TMC, 1/3 to the record label that distributes the money.
Airplay and Promotion
Airplay is the lifeblood of musicians and TMC is working for you around the clock. TMC continues to provide airplay opportunities for musicians for years after their initial appearance. We promote your music at no cost to you, leveraging the power of all artists appearing on Texas Music Cafe®.
Artists such as yourself get discovered by appearing alongside other artists (Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Slaid Cleaves, Ruthie Foster, etc.) appearing on TMC’s playlists.
It will be an easy gig. The PA, Stage Monitors, Microphones and Lighting are all provided along with a professional Sound Technician. All you need to bring are your instruments and small amplifiers(if required),
