GameRunnaZ Records & Music Publishing has signed a direct publishing deal with Facebook Music in gearing up to re-launch the independent record label in its new home of San Diego, CA.
“Like many others in 2020, it’s been a challenging year as an independent record label, and most of our plans have been on hold since March of this year. This is a great step in recovery and continuing on with our plans from before the pandemic,” says Jacoby “J.T. Pender, founder.
The direct deal will allow GameRunnaZ to directly distribute and manage its incoming releases for first quarter of 2021 which include J.T. as an artist, and an expanded roster of San Diego artist to the world’s most popular social platform and its subsidiaries, which include Instagram.
In January of 2019, J.T. began working on his album “Existence,” which was began out of necessity in needing to vent the struggles of losing his mother to cancer and brother to a car accident during a hard week in November of the previous year.
What began as an EP that was supposed to cover the struggle between dark emotions and re-building the label in San Diego turned to a full album as the content kept flowing. Often dubbed a selfish album by J.T. album due to it being primarily for self-reflection, and not tailored to the listener, Existence will prove to touch areas of life that most mainstream music doesn’t.
In the upcoming interview, J.T. explains why he postponed the album release due to the 2020 pandemic, and what has changed in outlook and his artistry. Stay tuned…
