It’s an interesting pairing for both label and artists. Eastwood is a Louisville, KY-based company that, despite being in the Bluegrass State, have not worked with bluegrass artists in the past. They take an interesting approach for an indie label, in that they also provide booking services for their artists with an in-house agent on staff. With an artist service-centered approach, they believe they can win acts away from larger labels by providing opportunities the bigger companies don’t offer.
