(JTA) - JDub, the innovative Jewish music and events promoter best known for launching the career of Chasidic reggae singer Matisyahu, is closing.
The company which was responsible for Balkan Beat Box, the Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists, and jewcy.com, cited financial troubles for its closing.
“The collapse of the music business in the decade that JDub has existed, combined with recessionary effects and aging out of the cohort of Jewish ‘start-ups,’ made securing the necessary operating support an insurmountable challenge,” the statement read.
JDub, which has sold 1.6 million records, said it will wind down its operations slowly and try to find homes for its programs and assets.
