New York, NY – August 9, 2016 – BalconyTV, an online video channel of musicians performing on balconies around the world, announces the creation of BalconyTV Records, a label dedicated to producing compilations of the best live recordings from BalconyTV performances around the world.

BalconyTV Records is launching with a compilation series titled Live from the Outside. Each installment will focus on a specific genre, pooling recorded performances from BalconyTV’s 60+ international locations. The collection’s first release, Live from the Outside Vol. 1, focuses on indie rock and is now live on all digital stores and services. Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 are due out later this month.
“BalconyTV is always focusing on finding new artists and showcasing them to a worldwide audience,” said Jeff Clyburn, President & GM of BalconyTV. “Live from the Outside allows us to highlight the finest performances from up-and-coming musicians of all genres and share them with the world in a new medium.”

Launched in 2006 on a balcony in Dublin, BalconyTV has grown into a 21st century online music network. Our producers scour the globe for the best local talent, tape them performing a single song live on a balcony and post the performance online to be enjoyed by a worldwide audience. We post over 50 performances per week from over 60 stunning locations in 30 different countries spanning the globe. Notable artists who have appeared on BalconyTV include Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Mumford & Sons, Kaiser Chiefs, Joss Stone, Little Green Cars, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and many more.
