Icehouse Music and Who We Are:
Icehouse Music is an Independent Texas music label and distributor. In 2003, our founder and president David Gardner discovered a glaring deficiency in the business of distributing Texas music CDs. He went on to develop a new methodology to establish a much needed distribution link between Texas musicians and their fans; a link that put the great sounds of Texas at the fingertips of the music consumer in new and accessible locations all across the Lone Star State.
Icehouse Music and What We Do:
In response to the exploding Texas Music movement, Icehouse has developed and placed unique CD point of purchase displays throughout Texas. Icehouse also offers our complete catalog of Texas Music in our secure online store with the goal of making Texas Music accessible worldwide.
Icehouse Music Gives Back:
At Icehouse Music we love Texas Music and work with multiple organizations to promote and preserve the Music of Texas. Our goal is to ensure Texas Music and it’s artists have the ability to thrive in today’s competitive music market. Icehouse Music wants Texas Music to be around, now and in the future.
