AMI, along with its artists, is exploring new ways to focus artistic vision, build core audiences through educational and community outreach, and connect to a new generation of fans that listen without boundaries. With this goal in mind, AMI will be announcing plans within the next year for a record label and a New Jersey based music festival. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
