We are an independent record label, and we plant a tree for every album sale.
By providing our artists with the proper resources and tools, we are turning their passion into a career. Forest Entertainment was started by music industry majors at Fredonia State University that are fed up with how record labels are run. We provide artists with friendly deals, teach them how the industry works and help them manage their career - all while doing good for Earth.
The Forest Initiative is our pact to planet Earth. For every album sale, around 2,000 streams, we plant a tree. We believe that giving back to Earth is just as important as the artists we are working with. But, we also have more opportunities to give back to this planet that has given us so much.
We run initiative campaigns where we may plant a tree for every newsletter signup, follows, retweets, likes, etc.
We have partnered with One Tree Planted, one of the largest non-profit 501(c)3 environmental tree planting organizations, to work with us to plant trees.
We need your help! Forest Entertainment is founded by current and former college students who just want to help out artists and Earth. In this economy, especially with events as of recent, acquiring a loan through a bank or lender isn't feasible for our business model. That is where you come in!
Half of the proceeds for this GoFundMe campaign will be used to plant a tree!
That's right! If you donate $10, then 5 trees will be planted!
Where the funds are going:
1. Half of our funds will be used to plant a tree, at $1 per tree.
2. Marketing & promotion efforts for our brand.
3. Funding artists in the production of music.
4. Upkeep costs such as bookkeeping, software, web and domain services, etc.
5. Acquiring a team to help us and our efforts!
The typical record label offers its artists something called "360 Deals". These deals will often give a large sum of cash to an artist upon signing, but in reality, it is misleading the artist.
The artists will not make a single penny in royalties until all of the money is recouped, essentially making them a slave to the label. Also, the give up all of their ownership to the label. Imagine spending 6 months of your life working on an album, just to not own it when you complete it.
Here is where we are different:
1. Artists will retain all ownership of their intellectual property.
2. Royalty cuts in favor of the artist.
3. No long term commitments or options that lock them into a label.
4. Artist retains the final say in their artistic work.
5. We plant a tree on the artist's behalf!
