Victor Wooten Announces VIX Records, Re-Releases “A Show of Hands”
Victor Wooten will be expanding his musical footprint as he launches VIX Records, his self-owned label on which he will release all of his future albums. The new record label will give Vic “complete control of his creations,” as well as help others keep their voice.
“We aim to provide, by example, a different standard and model for record labels and artists, as well as for how they relate to each other,” the five-time Grammy winner explains. “Following my successful approach of creating Music that focuses on filling my soul rather than my pockets, I’ve found that this is the best recipe for doing both.“
To celebrate the move, Wooten is re-releasing his solo debut with bonus material. Available in March, A Show of Hands-15 contains the re-mastered versions of the original songs from the groundbreaking album along with three new tracks, including two with drummer JD Blair plus another unedited live solo by Wooten.
