Investing in Life, Love and Local Music

The Heart Journey Local Music Foundation believes in the power of local music to inspire, to heal and preserve our unique culture here in Texas. 

In a changing music industry, local artists face steep costs to bring their music to life, tour and get noticed.

We award a financial scholarship to one Texas artist/group/duo to cover expenses from recording to promotion: everything our local musicians need to kick-start their careers.

Heart Journey Local Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donations go to artists, never to administrative costs or salaries. 

How We Help


Invest in Fort Worth’s best local and underrecognized red dirt country artists.  


Promote local artists through sponsorships, advertising and community events.


Foster mentorships between established artists and new talent throughout the DFW Metroplex.

Mission Statement

The H.J. Local Music Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created to help and support local music artists to further their careers and to support various local nonprofits organizations.  The foundation raises funds by way of sponsors, donations, and special events. The foundation’s board holds a special meeting to nominate and then to select one artist each year that will be the recipient of the H.J.L.M.F. scholarship.
The recipient of the scholarship is based on a multitude of different factors. The artist selected will have the funds available via the scholarship to help them advance in their career. All proceeds go directly to the H.J. Local Music Foundation.

God bless and thank you from #TeamHeart
