Some artists we’ve worked with
"From the moment I began working with GV Evolutions I felt I would be taken care of. They were hands on and cared about the success of my business and I recommend them to my peers every chance I get."
~ Todd Sapio, Language Room
Austin, Texas generates few bands that are truly memorable. Language Room is one of those bands. Their story is no different from most but they’re attitude towards their business is what sets them apart from the vast array of competition. They came to GV Evolutions very interested in creating a calculated plan moving forward. As it was a period where they were making meaningful changes, getting serious about their direction in the new, evolved industry became increasingly important to them. Together we developed a comprehensive business plan that emphasized control and innovative thinking on their road towards being a self-sustaining company. They are now signed to Pazzo Records, an independent label based in Austin, and have received numerous accolades for their latest release produced by Blue October’s Matt Noveskey.
"Taking the time to build an entire outline and goal-orientated plan in ANY business is absolutely essential. That being said, the necessity of having it available for a group of musicians is just as important, if not more so. Working with GV Evolutions in their 6 month program to create such a valuable tool has allowed us to comprehensively break down a strategic approach to the ideals of our success. In addition to this, it has given us a better understanding of our fan base, our market appeal, and added clarity to our values not just as a band, but as a business offering a product to loyal customers. Not only do we recommend to any musician the possession of a plan moving forward, but wholeheartedly endorse GV Evolutions over any other business to those musicians looking for an edge, a path, and a focus in their career.”
~ Mike Tate & Tyler Wood, A Letter of Warning
With enough entrepreneurial ambition and tenacity to take up a city block, A Letter of Warning was a perfect addition to our list of clients. With a concentration on building a career in such a unique environment, they are effectively competent towards their surroundings and have a knack for knowing exactly what their audience wants. Our time together consisted of defining business as an art form and transferring the massive amounts of creativity they had to a new medium. Whether it was networking strategy, social media, or basic sales skills, they had the ability to truly think outside the box and make whatever resources they had available, work for them. Today they are continuing to expand on their support base, touring, and making enormous strides by taking advantage of all the opportunities that this evolving industry has to offer.

~ Brent Allen
Texas is obviously known for its well-developed and affluent country music community and Brent Allen has made it his business to set himself apart in such an incredibly competitive market.
