THIS IS WHO WE ARE
root·stock: a primary form or source from which offshoots have arisen; often an underground part, from which new above-ground growth can be produced.
The heart and soul of Rootstock Republic is founded on and steeped in connection—to musical principles, its artists and its partners. At Rootstock, we are deeply committed to nurturing partnerships and forging relationships in an effort to cultivate new artistic landscapes that challenge the use and sound of strings, and to further expand the definition and shape of what it means to be a string player. The nature of our work is expansive, and is representative of artists and creative consultants whose contributions are exemplified in Film, Music and Television.
THIS IS WHAT WE DO
Rootstock Republic is a boutique, broad-based music production company that specializes in consulting, contracting, music preparation, live performance and studio recording. Our complete suite of services is designed to help you not only meet but exceed your project goals. We have shared creative partnership with Red Bull Studios NY; Beats by Dre; VH1, and Interscope Records; and are continually cultivating opportunities to push the envelope in contemporary performance through dynamic, collaborative partnerships. We’d love to add some #rootmagik to your project.
THIS IS WHY
Rootstock’s founder, Juliette Jones, established Rootstock Republic to further invigorate the efforts and initiatives of ally institutions, organizations and projects focused on changing the landscape of what is means to not only be a string player in the vastness of the creative community but also as a string player of color on a global spectrum. Rootstock’s core initiatives are founded on:
(1) social justice by using the arts as a vehicle for activism;
(2) the cultivation of unique, sustainable relationships with allies who center and uphold the value of arts education, with a focus on young string players of color;
(3) international collaboration and immersive programming, focused on building platforms for cultural discourse on diversity in the arts and;
(4) centering community engagement and accessibility to the arts through the curation of new performance opportunities dedicated to those who are often marginalized.
