THE TRUTH TO POWER PROJECT

Dallas-based Eastwood Music Group has joined forces with the Dallas Mavericks and FirstCom Music UMPG to curate a "Soundtrack for Empowerment."

The Truth to Power Project is a creative endeavor working to engage people with inspiring new music and multimedia content to encourage community involvement. Let’s bring truth to the light so that we can heal, grow, and prosper together. 

Hip-Hop, Soul, Psych and Jazz artists with a shared commitment to racial equity have donated their time and creative energies to produce exclusive collaborations, including Grammy Award winner Leon Bridges, Grammy Award nominee Black Pumas, BADBADNOTGOOD, Keite Young, Ghost-Note, Sarah Jaffe, Holy Hive, and many more. And it hasn’t taken long for this expansive, nonprofit musical endeavor to transcend its DFW roots and grow into Austin, New York, Detroit, and Toronto.

A percentage of the revenue generated from this project will support the next generation of emerging musicians through the Music Forward Foundation. This national nonprofit organization is dedicated to transforming young lives, inspiring careers, and championing a more inclusive music industry. 

On a local level, Eastwood is working with the Dallas Mavericks and FirstCom Music UMPG to identify nonprofits in the DFW-area that are aligned with their vision for supporting communities that have been damaged by inequitable structures.

Mission

WE EXIST TO AMPLIFY RESILIENCE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY THROUGH THE POWER OF COLLABORATIVE MUSIC AND FOCUSED GIVING.

We drive intersectional funding into the hands of community-based nonprofits who are directly impacting their neighborhoods.  

The Truth to Power Project is more than an album—it's an initiative. Eastwood Music Group, in collaboration with Music Forward, work to encourage and energize DFW residents to positively engage with underserved areas of their community. 

EMG founders Luke Sardello (co-owner of Josey Records) and Jeff “Skin” Wade (The Ben and Skin Show and The Dallas Mavericks TV Broadcast) have been deeply involved in the DFW music scene for over 30 years. Recognizing the enormous role Black Artists have had on shaping their perspectives, but heartbroken by the relentless tragedies of 2020, they were compelled to do more.  

Having witnessed the limited access to funding and opportunities that prevented Black Artists and Black Organizations from achieving their visions for their communities, Sardello and Wade saw an opportunity to connect these leaders with musicians, athletes, and donors who share their dream of a unified, equitable, and inspired common culture. 

And we’re just getting started.
