The Nature of Truth is becoming a monthly digital album featuring 20 recording artists featured in radio shows produced for national distribution to noncommercial broadcast radio stations.

The Nature of Truth

As a record label representing songwriters and recording artists, you are aware of the valuable role noncommercial radio stations play in the careers of emerging and established musicians.

We invite you and your artists to participate in a grassroots project to establish the power of music's role in sustaining noncommercial broadcasters through the hard times ahead.

Public broadcasting is facing elimination of federal funding.

Artists for Media Diversity, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 2008 by songwriters and musicians to support community radio stations facing federal funding cutbacks.

We are calling on our fellow recording artists to contribute music downloads of one song to a Nature of Truth community digital album. Proceeds from sales will be distributed to noncommercial radio stations by Artists for Media Diversity's fiscal sponsor Media Alliance.
