An Organization Founded to Help, Educate,Sustain,

Develop and Support Urban Artist.

Empowering Artists Since Day One.

UAA Founder Terrany Johnson is a 2015 Nominee of KLRU and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for The American Graduate Champion!

Those organizations and individuals whose work is having an impact in their communities, and offering hope for even greater progress on critical issue as drop out rates and education.

We have been fighting "Pay 2Play" (which charges artist obscene amounts of money to perform on stages for very short periods of time with no actual benefit to the artist ) Some charging artist as high as $2,ooo for a 20 minute set.

Now we have some results!

On February 27th the Austin City Council passed an amendment to the Downtown Density Bonus Program,that will ban “pay to play” in new venues that offer live music as one of their community benefits in order to qualify for benefits under the DDB program.

This amendment just means the City itself WILL NOT FUND a new downtown live music venue through the DDB program, if the venue does p2p. This is where you CHEER!

Voices were heard & History Was Made!

A foundation built to help educate, nurture and support the urban music community in central Texas by focusing on new methods for success such as brand building,strategic planning,career consulting and becoming a sustainable business.
