"The energy of the industry professionals of LRT Entertainment / LRT Music Group, their creativity combined with the diversity and creativity of the artists they represent has made LRT successful in this "business of music" world. The LRT Entertainment staff has creative and informative philosophies they strategically apply to helping artists. It allows the artists represented by LRT Entertainment / LRT Music Group an opportunity to further succeed, especially within the Mega- Internet super highways of today. LRT has a great family of artists and sub-labels under their umbrella and we are very excited to be a part of their family," stated Jones.
Today, LRT Entertainment / LRT Music Group is a successfully, independently owned and operated entertainment company. A contract between LRT Entertainment / LRT Music Group and INgrooves/Fontana (Universal Music Group) allows strategic marketing and global music distribution worldwide for their artists. This allows LRT Entertainment / LRT Music to maximize their impact within the music industry in order to increase fan bases, radio airplay, music purchases, music publishing, film and commercial exposure and many more opportunities for the artists they represent. INgrooves/Fontana is one of the world’s largest leading independent music distributors through Universal Music Group Since March 1, 2012 INgrooves/Fontana has had three albums debut in the Top 10 of the Billboards 200 Chart including Marilyn Manson’s Born Villain.
"LRT also offers worldwide media distribution to major and independent film studios including VOD, a TV placement program for films of all genres from documentaries to full theatricals. Universal is the largest independent file distribution exclusively through Vivendi Entertainment. During the week of June 12, 2012 alone, INgrooves/Fontana watched their distribution of Rock of Ages (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album) enter the Top 200 @ #15, a week before the film was scheduled to open. June also brought five 'New Preferred Partners' to INgrooves/Fontana bringing the company’s preferred list to nearly 20 including such well know companies as Topspin, ReverbNation and SoundCloud. To be a part of the LRT family who can put the music and videos of Asphalt Messiah before the powers to be is an exciting time for us" stated Bruce Vanderveer, Lead Vocalist and Co-Music Producer for Asphalt Messiah. www.INgroovesFontana.com
"Asphalt Messiah will be releasing their single "Let's Get Dirty 2Nite" January 2013 through LRT. It is an amazing feeling to know so many musical opportunities are presenting themselves to Asphalt Messiah. "Let's Get Dirty 2Nite" is a refreshing take on a steamy monogamous encounter cleverly fused with antidotes using current digital and social networking terminology. InRage Entertainment is proud to begin its journey with the first single by Asphalt Messiah officially being released through LRT Entertainment" stated Vanderveer.

“The official signing of the contract with LRT Entertainment / LRT Music Group was delayed due to my father having a heart attack and a stroke shortly after the performance at the Federal Bar. He was hospitalized for several weeks and unexpectedly passed on September due to complications of pancreatic cancer. The past month has been a very trying time and roller coaster of emotions from one extreme to the other. It taught me everything I try to instill in youth of today is still very deep rooted within myself.. Always do what is right first and foremost, everything else will fall into place if it is meant to be. It meant so much to spend the last month of my fathers' life knowing I had the support of my friends, band members and professional associations supporting me during that time.” Kacy Jones, Founder & Lead Guitarist, Asphalt Messiah
At this time, we would like to thank the staff of following companies for the musical opportunities afforded to us which led to this enormous opportunity: ReverbNation, Interscope/Aftermath Records and All Indianz Promotions. Your patience and support during this time was top shelf. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges of the future,” Asphalt Messiah.
