We have now expanded into the label business, forming our own record label entitled
Wommusic. Our vision for the label is to be able to support our clients and their careers
360 degrees by being able to release their music (when it makes sense for them to do so)
in addition to setting up the tours to promote the albums etc. So far we have 2 releases on
the label, both by Kurt Rosenwinkel, entitled The Remedy - Live At The Village Vanguard
and Standards Trio: Reflections.
