After establishing themselves as a do-it-yourself entity on their own terms, Snarky Puppy, the band that "stands out with a furious commitment to defying musical categories" (LA Times) has entered a joint partnership with UMC as the exclusive distributor of all releases under GroundUP Records, the label owned and operated by award-winning bassist/guitarist/composer/ arranger Michael League, whose creative grassroots approach with the band has been admired as a model for independent artists. The first release - Family Dinner - Volume Two is a follow-up to the Grammy-winning Family Dinner - Volume One (2014), and the band's latest offering following their acclaimed UMC release, Sylva; a collaboration with the Metropole Orkest that garnered a #1-chart debut on both Billboard's Jazz and Heatseekers Charts simultaneously.

Syndicated on over 300 stations in 38 states, Canada, Cambodia and New Zealand, Global Village also reports to CMJ, Roots Music Report, JazzWeek, Living Blues, and the Transglobal World Music Chart.
