DFI Arts formed to develop careers of emerging singer/sonwriters
Houston, August 30, 2009
Daniel Follette, Inc. today anounced the launch of DFI Arts, the company's new arts management arm. The new label will offer branding, marketing and production expertise to the music industry. DFI Arts will give select, emerging singer/songwriters business, marketing and creative support to enable them to find their audiences more quickly and build viable careers. The organization will provide a full range of advice from career planning, A&R, marketing and publishing, to branding and production.

Jon Hogan, the Austin-based singer/songwriter known for his original scorch-folk and American-genre music is DFI Arts' lead artist. His music and performance have been described as “Woody Guthrie meets Townes Van Zandt and the Carter Family to pick guitar with Kurt Cobain.”

Jon currently has three projects in development with DFI Arts, "Oil Town," an album of original songs; "Townes 'a Blaze'n," Jon's treatment of select songs by legends Townes van Zandt and Blaze Foley. A portion of album proceeds will go to support the Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe in Galveston. The tracks on a third album with the working title of "Old Time," will show just how contemporary traditional Appalachian ballads can be.

Jon's work reflects traditions that range from gospel rectitude to the gut-wrenching howl of the itinerant, freethinking cosmic refugee. Add righteous anger at anyone who ever took advantage of a decent soul, and there stands Jon Hogan. Austin producer, John Litherland, called Jon Hogan "A Will Rogers for a future generation."

Other client artist include the singer/songwriters David Fahl and Ashton Taylor.
