*Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas is searching worldwide for artists to join his new Los Angeles-based record label Jeepney Music, which is founded on the principle of giving back – to both Apl.de.Ap’s homeland of the Philippines and the global community.

Jeepney Music will not only feature emerging recording artists, but will also highlight the growing number of DJs and collaborative artists as he continues to build his label on the forefront of the digital transformation of music, the label announced.

“I now have the chance to share a dream I was given when I was brought from the Philippines to the United States,” said Apl. “I want to give other artists the chance I had, particularly those from developing countries who may not have the opportunity to share their talent on a global scale.”

The online submission at www.jeepneymusic.com allows artists to track what projects and talent are being used for collaborative initiatives with Apl and other artists.

Jeepney Music is currently featuring artists from the United States, Korea, South Africa, India, and the Philippines.
