Do the right thing with music.
“I started Artists Without Labels because I noticed many Indie artists, including myself, were not very business literate and didn’t really have access to high quality recording and production due to time and financial constraints. I wanted to help them find a way to get these important knowledge assets that make or break success along with having a brand and marketing plan when releasing music that I’ve learned along the way, so that instead of waiting to be discovered artists discover themselves and define their musical tribes or audience as part of the process.
I enjoy connecting music artists with the vast network of professional musicians, producers and recording engineers in the different art & music scenes I’ve traveled in over several decades. Seeing the high quality and positive outcomes of these collaborations is very fulfilling for me. Indie artists all have a 360 degree record deal with themselves and we now have the tools develop tangible, successful music careers once we tap into available technology.” -Thomas Hutchings, Founder/Creative Director, Artists W/O Labels
