Background: “I have been in the music business as a musician since I was 17. At that age I started in the business as a drummer.

I do a lot of band merchandising and charitable runs. I have also started merchandising for other bands. I teach kids how to do their own merchandising and how to run a music business. I am a one-stop operation for musicians, where I offer merchandising, production, recording and video production all in one place. We have a 600-square foot studio. We also do graphic design and website design. There is everything under the sun for your music label.”
