The Voices of the Underground Artist Movement organization (TVOTUAM) was created in early 2005. The movement was born from the realization that Canadian record labels have turned a blind eye and ear to the grass roots Canadian urban artist. Instead, the labels have opted to focus their energy on those that fit their cookie cutter expectations of an artist. The purpose of TVOTUAM is to help â€œjump startâ€ artistsâ€™ careers by giving them the exposure and support required to break through to the next level. The goal is to help the artists control their own future by assisting them as they fight for exposure and gain their own notoriety without depending on the record labels. As an organization, we are resolute in that goal and we refuse to bend to the rules of the record labelsâ€™ industry. Although TVOTUAM started in 2005, it began to gain momentum during the summer and fall of 2006.
Currently its artists perform weekly at Chinadoll in Little Italy. Our ultimate goal is to revolutionize the Canadian music industry. Our message to the industry is that they have, to their own detriment, ignored the grass roots Canadian urban artist for too long. We will stand up and take control of our own future. The question is â€œWill you stand up for the music, and fight with the movement?
