“We are a small boutique label that strive to make quality music and thrive in today's competitive music market. The ability to sell our goods and successfully capitalize on the digital market is often at risk at the hand of the rampant piracy sites who unashamedly post our entire catalog on their websites for users to adquire freely leaving us with very little revenue which impact our business. We like to think that each legal purchase of our music is honoring our artist and their livelyhood. Music is a labor of love, sweat and tears and needs to be recognized. ”
