A2IM’s diverse community includes music labels of all sizes and staffing levels across the United States, from Hawaii to Florida, representing musical genres as diverse as our membership, including bluegrass, blues, children’s, classical, comedy, country, dance/electronic, gospel, folk, Hawaiian, jazz, hip-hop, Latin, metal, new age, pop, R&B, reggae, roots, soca/caribbean, traditional American, world, and more. “Independent” doesn’t refer to a specific genre of music, nor does it mean lesser-known artists: A2IM member labels have issued music releases by artists including Taylor Swift, Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, Adele, Alabama Shakes, Arcade Fire, Run the Jewels, Bon Iver, and many others.
