Key Deal Facts

The goal of this offering is to fund the recording, packaging, manufacturing, and marketing for a 10 to 11 track album of original music. This record will be produced and marketed independent of the major label system which creates a better return of investment than that offered by major labels. Management will put together a team of independent experts to produce and package the record, produce videos, and oversee worldwide marketing.
