From a capella vocals to jazz to folk to classical to urban/hip-hop, your music couldn’t be in better hands.

My involvement with ArtSound began in the early 1990s. At the time, as a young musician honing my skills, playing many live to air concerts and recording sessions was invaluable to my development. Though I left Canberra for Sydney and then New York City, I am happy to have maintained a relationship with ArtSound, a vital organization for arts and culture in the ACT. – Kevin Hailey, Bassist
