Maryland music business connecting indie artists with opportunities

COLUMBIA, Md. (March 29, 2023) – TEDCO, Maryland’s economic engine for technology companies, announced a recent Seed Funds investment of $200,000 into aBreak Music, a business looking to support independent music artists. 

“There are so many talented artists who are just waiting to be heard,” said Bruce Tyler, CEO and founder of aBreak Music. “With aBreak Music, we help speed up the process. Through our free new music and discovery platform, independent artists have the opportunity to be heard, not only by the general public, but by the major industry connections we’ve collaborated with.” 

aBreak Music, based in Elkridge, Md., is a business that seeks to support independent artists, bridging the gap between indie artists and the international music industry. Through the integrity, connections and experience the business provides, indie artists are given the opportunity to be featured on aBreak58—a tool for music industry gurus looking for the next talent, this playlist is a rotating list of 58 songs uploaded from indie artists worldwide.

“aBreak Music is providing opportunities for Maryland musicians looking to expand their reach,” said Teddy Gresser, investment analyst at TEDCO. “This expansion supports the growth and diversification of Maryland’s economy, allowing Maryland to be recognized on the map as a place for musicians. This is the type of impact TEDCO looks to support.”
