What is Rantcaster?

Rantcaster is a record label and publishing company that focuses on topical music. It is unique in that it provides music and other relevant content, such as spoken word poetry, to print publishers as a way to enhance their readers’ experiences. It also has an “edutainment” live touring component, The Art Of The Protest Song, that – with national, regional, and local artists – presents protest songs as a unique musical genre and powerful form of commentary about the world we live in.

Art of the Protest Song

Art of the Protest Song is essentially “Rantcaster in the flesh”: a series of “edutainment” performances by Rantcaster artists around the country, and eventually in international venues that are focused on both classic protest songs from, e.g., the civil rights movement, environmental and labor movement, to original works on contemporary topics. Prior to the launch of Rantcaster, there have been 21 AOTPS performances over the past four years in California, Oregon, Oklahoma, New Jersey, and Texas. Rantcaster plans to “turbo-charge” this initiative by developing a kit for artists to produce AOTPS events on a large scale, both domestically and internationally.
