“ALL ATX is an Austin music education based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that, in addition to its education outreach, provides exposure and training to Austin-area developing musicians through an annual live performance concert and a related musical album compilation. In addition to featuring these musicians on the compilation and at the concert, it raises money for Austin’s music charities who aid musicians in the areas of health care and income support.
Currently, ALL ATX benefits the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), The SIMS Foundation, Austin Music Foundation (AMF) and Black Fret. Through supporting these organizations, ALL ATX is striving to make Austin the place that provides professional musicians with the resources needed to not only succeed at their craft, but to also maintain a healthy livelihood. ALL ATX helps Austin musicians with education and affordability solutions so that Austin continues to be “The Live Music Capital of the World.“
