Our company is focused on remaining independent while building a fan base for our current and future artists. Many of our musicians do not need to depend on mainstream culture for acceptance or validity. Our team strives hard to create high-quality products and events in line with our brand.

We work hard to independently build and maintain excellence in all of our business and product developments. Our company was inspired by the following independent firms:
