Deciding to pursue a career as a recording artist is a life-changing commitment. Successfully navigating through an industry where only the strong and savvy survive requires much more than talent and hard work. As technology and consumer trends continue to diminish the role of major labels, independent artists have more opportunities than ever to build a fan base and get their music heard. Seizing these opportunities, however, sometimes requires help. This is where IXiiV Records comes in…
Over the past 6 months, the Boss Ladies have been working extremely hard behind-the-scenes to bring you a revamped, redesigned, and re-energized IXiiV Records. While IXiiV is no longer signing artists as a traditional record label (though, was it ever traditional?), it continues to be an innovative music company dedicated to helping recording artists achieve their professional goals. Best known for its urban, hip-hop style, IXiiV is now open to all genres of music!
What is the new IXiiV?
IXiiV is dedicated to empowering artists through one-on-one consultation, industry education, and creative distribution services. With the right guidance and resources, artists can successfully carve out their own path in the industry, a belief encompassed by IXiiV’s motto: Damn the man. Play the music.
New Services for Artists:
After years of supporting and advising artists, it’s only natural that the Boss Ladies parlay their experience and passion for helping artists make it on their own into part of the IXiiV business portfolio. Through personal consultation sessions, Vic and Suz will provide artists with the knowledge and tools they need to market, promote, and distribute their music to the masses. Including everything from writing press releases to outlining a business plan to copyrighting music, the Boss Ladies can help all artists get their next project off the ground. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
While other companies may have jumped on the physical-meets-digital bandwagon in recent months, IXiiV was the FIRST to introduce this format with the debut of Hoodies™ back in the summer of 2009, after developing the idea for a senior thesis in 2005. Hoodies™ are the only music format that offers fans both digital and physical content in one package. IXiiV is offering this innovative format in a new and improved way to allow artists to distribute their own music through IXiiV’s Hoodies™ brand without signing an exclusive recording contract. Your music is yours to own!
Another first credited to IXiiV is introduction of our University, the only educational system that caters specifically to the independent recording artist. Taking consulting to a new level, IXiiV will be rolling out online classes in time for the Fall term for artists to enroll in and walk away a one-person entertainment juggernaut. The Boss Ladies will guide artist through a variety of subjects and provide them with invaluable materials such as reports, presentations, and templates.
Class subjects include:
- Digital Marketing
- Offline Marketing
- Performance and Publicity
