Posi-Tone, with its innovative and future-oriented approach and its roster of creative players and composers, is a label that blends passion, business acumen and respect for artistry. Free echoes this attitude: "With so many talented musicians on the scene today, with so much new and creative music to make, we are excited about the future. ...We believe it's equally vital to help younger musicians grow and mature as it is to revitalize and document the careers of the established musicians if the art form is to grow and thrive."
