NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today EDGEOUT RECORDS announces the opening of their Nashville office. Located at UMG’s Iconic East Iris Studios (former House Of Blues Studios) in Nashville’s Berry Hill neighborhood. The Nashville office will be managed by EDGEOUT’s Los Angeles staff, based out of UMG’s Santa Monica office. Jena Yannone, EDGEOUT’s Senior Director of Digital Media & Content, has relocated to Nashville to oversee day-to-day operations.

EDGEOUT Records signs young rock musicians that successfully complete an exclusive artist development program, “THE STUDIO.” The label’s mission is to develop aspects of an artist’s career including their overall sound, song structure, live stage performance, image/branding, personal wellness, and the art of the music business. EDGEOUT also signs established rock artists with specialty projects.

The label is home to revered guitar-dance artist ASHBA (the founder of GDM, a sub-genre of electronic music), pop-rock band The Revelries, pop/rock-blues psych rock band Bluphoria, alternative rock band The Jacks and pop-punk band Stratejacket.
