Since launching the first televised concert in 2009 with singer/songwriter Patty Griffin, Artists Den Entertainment has succeeded in producing intimate and unique experiences with over 75 cutting-edge, contemporary musicians at historic venues including Graceland, a 1930s silent movie theater, the world’s oldest merchant sailing vessel, the New York Public Library, The World’s Fair and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The series is known for identifying emerging musicians before they become major superstars such as Adele, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Mumford & Sons, as well as established artists like Norah Jones, Tim McGraw, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello and John Legend. Recently the Artists Den kicked off experiential and merchandising initiatives.
Six years ago Artists Den produced the live concert Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den at the Wiltern in Los Angeles in support of their album King Animal. That 29-song, two-and-a-half-hour performance has become the best-selling Soundgarden live show for an official release. To honor that performance after the death of frontman Chris Cornell, Artists Den reunited the existing members and produced national immersive experiences in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. The immersive events surrounded fans with footage from HD cameras capturing 12 different angles of original concert footage as a one-night-only global IMAX screening along with a live remix of the original multitrack 48-channel audio in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound. Artists Den also released the limited-edition Super Deluxe box set of the concert on Blu-ray and vinyl with bonus materials and more.
Live from the Artists Den airs nationwide on public television in the U.S., as well as on international networks in the U.K., Japan, Germany, Australia, Canada, Israel and Latin America. The series is also available on 10 international in-flight entertainment systems. Filming for Season 14 will begin fall 2019.
