Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The landmark musician's showcase "GreenRoots Presents" today announced it has entered into a partnership with Dale Godboldo Enterprises, Inc. (http://www.GodboldoEnterprises.com) and Director Joseph Garner (https://www.facebook.com/jgfilm) to produce a television pilot for a series of concert experiences called "The Sound LAB." The Sound LAB is an extension of the hugely popular "GreenRoots Presents: Blue 'n Green", which was co-founded by Angelique Sheppard and Mikal Blue of Revolver Studios (Jason Mraz, Daughtry, One Republic) to provide a one of a kind environment for artistic expression and collaboration between musicians in Los Angeles. Members of the GreenRoots family and past showcase performers include Bruno Mars, Colbie Callait, Andy Grammar, Ernie Halter, Allen Stone and Tony Lucca (NBC's "The Voice" finalist). "The Sound LAB" will continue the GreenRoots tradition of displaying collaboration within the artist's community, and leverage both television and cutting edge new media strategies capable of reaching millions worldwide.
"The GreenRoots Presents: Blue 'n Green" showcase was launched in 2009 based upon the belief that mixing discerning ears for great sound with world-class talent, will create a community capable of socially elevating the art of music to where it transcends labels of gender, class, or creed, and boundaries of race, culture, age, and musical genre. The GreenRoots family is a growing part of a larger movement emphasizing a return to authenticity in the music industry, while staying rooted in the music and connected to one another. "The Sound LAB" is a multi-media extension of this movement, and the first television series to provide an authentic window into this community of artists, by not only capturing intimate musical performances, but also by exploring pieces of the artists' personal and creative lives.
"This showcase began in our living room, and to see what has become of this community, how it's grown, and the artistic relationships it's helped develop and nurture in a collaborative environment has probably been the most encouraging part for me..." says Angelique Sheppard, founder of "GreenRoots Presents" and Executive Producer of "The Sound LAB,""and that's why I'm excited to work with Dale and Joseph to finally bring this to a world-wide audience."
Production on "The Sound LAB" pilot will begin with the first concert in "The Sound LAB Summer Spotlight Series" on June 30, 2012 at Witzend Live, located in the heart of Venice, CA. The concert will be co-hosted by Angelique Shepard and veteran actor/producer Dale Godboldo, and will benefit Kids In The Spotlight - a program that trains foster care and other underserved youth to create, write, cast and star in their own short films. The pilot will be Produced and Directed by Joseph Garner ("Craigslist Joe," Executive Produced by Zach Galifinakis), and Executive Produced by Sheppard and Godboldo.
"Watching America catch on to this dynamic and unique community of artists has been inspiring to say the least," states Dale Godboldo, Executive Producer of "The Sound LAB. "I was thrilled to be asked by Angelique to work on a project that embodies excellence, is rooted in artistic integrity, and is committed to developing youth in arts via programs like Kids In The Spotlight - an initiative I am passionate about."
"The Sound LAB Summer Spotlight Series" will feature amazing artists from the GreenRoots family performing 30 minute sets each: David Ryan Harris (John Mayer's long-time guitarist and background vocalist, also writing with, playing with and/or producing Dave Matthews, Marc Broussard, Natasha Beddingfield, Santana and John Mayer), Angel Taylor (iTunes' Pop album of the year and featured on NBC’s “The Voice”), Jacob Luttrell (SESAC’s 2011 winner Song of the Year for Enrique Iglesias’ “Tonight" f/ Ludacris, and penned hits for FloRida, David Guetta, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne), Melissa Polinar (YouTube sensation with 6 million views), Dana Glover (recently showcased on Desperate Housewives alongside Dave Koz), and Amanda Dumas (shared the stage with Lalah Hathaway, Ledisi, Tyler Hilton and the late legendary Etta James).

Joseph Garner, Director and Producer of "The Sound LAB" stated, "I've had the honor of working with Angelique and many of these artists over the years, and I'm excited at the opportunities ahead to show the world what we have all known for sometime - that the GreenRoots community is doing something truly special."
