What Part of Independent Are You!?

Just finished posting in Facebook and of course on Twitter about our return to opening the doors for folks to get out there in Japan.  It's been 10 long years and alot of bruises along the way, but hey WE'RE STILL HERE!

There was alot of talk recently from artists wanting to squash what we've been building and I can't speak for their actions, but I can say that we've been doing this thing and loving it regardless to the "haters".  It's cool when people think we're too small because maybe our house is not roomy enough for you.  It's cool when people think that we don't charge enough or maybe too much because maybe you have someone who'll give you just what you need.

However, when we started, we did it out of pure love for the artists and not so much about the industry and in the end we're still here and still being heard.  Now, for those independent artists who are out there struggling to make ends meet and who stare at the videos on tv and wish that was you then definitely stick with us because if you're willing to learn we're willing to teach and design resources that you need to make you a little more independent and not sell your soul for a mic and a dream from a major label!
The only thing we promise is to make sure we unlock what we know to help you grow and then help to grow the opportunities.  So, if you're in....we're here!

To be truly independent is to make the choice first to do that and then assembling all the resources and relationships to make what you have sell.  When someone whom you connect with tells you what they charge, why is it that many artists gasp in disbelief because they can't believe the price.  People it's more about going independent than depending on someone else and if they have something that could potentially open a door for you then why not look at the value rather than just a price.  In many cases, what they're offering is not something that you could get on your own so don't just gasp either try them out or move on.

For the most part, we didn't feel the need to charge because there are times when we take on other larger projects in order to help the independent artist get a lower price (not lower quality) and then utilize those resources that we retain when doing business with well known more established artists in Japan then bring that to the independents and help YOU.

All in all we've been successful with this model and will be opening the doors for more folks to come in.  Stay with us if you'd like and more importantly use this as your resource because we'll be offering more services while helping you to grow!
