WATCH: Father and son open new recording label in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man and his son have opened a new recording label, and they’re looking to help young people who may feel like they’re the next big thing. It’s a way to help young people in the community, especially to deter them from violence.

“Particularly since Memphis is my hometown, it saddens me to see the rise in crime and violence here. Music soothes a savage beast and music has a way of being the glue that connects people,” said Recording Artist Larry Dodson.

Larry Dodson says as hundreds of people have been lost to gun violence this year in Memphis, more resources are needed to get young people off the streets and away from violence.

He says he’s giving young artists an opportunity to be a part of his new label Music Moves Records. It’s a label he started with his son. He says in addition to shows he’s having, he’s hoping to help others.

“We invite everybody from Memphis who has the aspirations of being the next big thing,” said Dodson.

He’s also celebrating his new single called “I’m Good” and he has a pay-per-view concert Saturday. He says during these unprecedented times, the songs, the video, and the concert will help to put a smile on a lot of people’s faces.

“This is a family business and our doors are open to Memphis talent man.”
