"There are so many artists we believe in and different styles of music we love, having an outlet for that has become really important to us," Walker & Royce said in a press release. "A lot of artists can be put in a box and we want to break those rules, this is the way we are going to do that. We want to encourage artists to make what they love and express themselves without feeling the pressure to fit into a specific genre."
