Journeyman LLC, the newest endeavor between Blues Rock icon Joe Bonamassa and his long-time manager Roy Weisman, is a full-service artist management, record label, concert promotion, and marketing company that builds awareness for independent artists worldwide. Journeyman provides the infrastructure needed to jumpstart the careers of exceptional independent artists, who are too often overlooked by the major labels or concert promoters while circumventing the resistance of typical “gatekeepers” who don’t support indie acts. Bonamassa is passionate about leveraging his experience to pay it forward and help other artists navigate the industry’s murky waters, setting Journeyman apart as the true market maker for its roster.
Under the Journeyman Records banner, Bonamassa and Weisman utilize the same savvy tactics that they perfected in building Bonamassa’s career to launch artists like Joanne Shaw Taylor and Robert Jon & The Wreck, overcoming the industry barriers that typically hold back artists. “This is about an Independent label breaking music industry trends,” Weisman reflects. “Helping these artists develop and nurture a fan base builds a connection so that when they release their album and go on the road, the stage is set.”
A partnership with Journeyman Records affords artists the opportunity to work with the world’s top producers and release a steady stream of high-quality music on an ongoing basis, cutting through the industry chaos. The first to join the label was British-born blues-rock sensation Joanne Shaw Taylor, whose talents are poised to make the company’s entertainment division the most successful since Bonamassa and Weisman’s creation of J&R Adventures. Using Journeyman’s keen concert promotion and music marketing skills, Taylor has transitioned from clubs to theaters, and tickets for her 20-date US Spring tour, launching March 19th in Clearwater, FL, are selling well across the country. These same tactics helped launch Bonamassa’s career, bringing him from small clubs to the world’s most prominent stages, and catapulting him to stardom as a recording artist and touring act.
2023 is shaping up to be another gangbuster year for Journeyman and its roster, whose breakthroughs in the studio and on the road will transform them into highly recognized and respected artists. The latest single released on the label was the Americana-infused “Who Can You Love” by Robert Jon & The Wreck. Produced by the legendary, multi-GRAMMY Award winner Don Was, the song will be featured on the band’s new EP ‘One Of A Kind,’ slated for release in March via Journeyman Records. Robert Jon & The Wreck’s new partnership with Journeyman affords them the opportunity to work with the world’s top producers and release a steady stream of high-quality singles on an ongoing basis, cutting through the industry chaos and ensuring new music is accessible to fans as intended.
