It is such an honor to share with you the news this August. September will mark six months since buying The Music Factory building. It has been a complete joy working on repairs and upgrades, always exploring new ways to best serve the community. Having such a positive and beautiful dream unfold has inspired around the clock work planning our next steps. One area of focus has been developing a record label under the same umbrella: Music Factory Records.

Since February, we have received dozens of positive reviews! Read a few at https://arijoshua.com/recent-press, or visit the blog page. So much has transpired! It means the world to me when you all show support by listening to the music, visiting the website, and even buying merch to share the LOVE as I continue to pour my heart and soul into this work!
The best way to get involved is to sign up for music lessons via The Music Factory. You can improve your life while signing up yourself, your kids, or your loved ones for instruction on all sorts of instruments. This fall, we will offer special deals during day-times and weekends.There are 3 ways to sign up; at our location, online via zoom, and in some neighborhoods we are offering weekly in-home visits! www.musicfactorynw.com/sign-up
The next BEST way to support our efforts is to visit the online store https://musicfactory.creator-spring.com. New items becoming available each week: this link will continue working while our new online store is under construction. GO buy MERCH!

Jambase's Andy Kahn shared a nice article on Help On the Way this week:
Music For All Magazine's Luanda Myers is a nice read, be sure to translate to English though :) it's a Brazilian publication:
Kambo Wambo is now released, starting today, Friday 8/18! It features the Vermont Duo most known for their work with Trey Anastasio, and Soule Monde. This original music has an Afrobeat groove and it's a 20-minute extended jam! Read More.
Dragons Layer has that Adult Swim, cartoon theme song vibe to it. It features two of my all time favorite musicians of all times. MMW's John Medeski, and Billy Martin and it also features my longtime friend Jason Fraticelli, bassist for Matisyahu, and Cyro Baptista. Read More.
Thank you so much for being here with me, for staying in orbit with my dreams, and I wish you all the best of health and fortune this year! Below are a few more links to some write-ups. Remember, your support means the world to me!
