Support Talented Bay Area Musicians


Project Background:
"91% of all artists are completely undiscovered." -Digital Music News 

The SF Bay Area has tons of extremely talented musicians. However, the reality is that you will probably never see or hear most of these artists' music since they don't have the coaching, resources or network to make their career in music possible. Below, is how we plan to support local musicians in launching careers and how you can get behind us. 

Who We Are:
We are a collective of local business specialists, content creators, and music artists. We carry decades of collected experience in areas that are crucial to an artist's success in music. We are committed to developing and supporting local musicians at no cost to them, so that they can continue to live here, produce great music, and get discovered. 

What We Are Doing:
For our first campaign, we are focusing on SF Bay Area hip-hop/rap musicians. On July 15th, 2019 we are launching our artist application  through Facebook, Instagram and through channels of music community leaders like Hip Hop For Change , BlncdBrkfst , Music City SF , and others to reach as many Bay Area musicians as possible. The application will be open for 1 month before moving on to the selection process. By August 31st, 9 artists will be selected to participate in our curriculum and workshop, which provides musicians with a team and supportive structure where they will be coached by our soon to be announced specialists and be exposed to opportunities to develop their craft, create high quality content, and to perform. In late October, these musicians will perform at a large local venue (TBD) before the local community and earn a cut of the revenue generated from the event.

We wish to garner enough support to repeat this initiative at least twice per year, across different genres of music, for different local communities, so that as many Bay Area musicians as possible can have access to this opportunity.

Why We Need You:
This initiative requires support from the entire community, in order to promote the artist application, book venues for the artist workshops and live show, hire specialists, and cover overhead expenses for the entire operation. We hope that besides donating to our campaign that you will help us spread the word and get other people behind this initiative.

If you or your organization would like to support us in any way, please email us at .
