WE ARE A TEAM of BUSINESS-MINDED MUSICIANS WORKING TOGETHER for SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS WITHOUT A RECORD COMPANY.
Celebrating 12 years | Established 2006
1. ALBUM RELEASE PROGRAM
Immersive, unique, cooperative…and new! Artists work in teams, under the guidance of ArtiSans Label, for 12 months.
We provide a comprehensive strategic plan, based on real data, with continual guidance and project management. You provide a great album, play live, and hustle every day. We’ll find your fans, engage ‘em, and bring them to you.
You get a coach, a champion, a team, a playbook, merch, tools, and the chance to make your next album matter to way more people than before.
The Album Resource for Independent Artists (ARIA) is our curated collection of helpful articles, videos, how-to’s, etc., easily searchable and hyper-focused only on releasing your own albums. And it’s free!
3. MUSIC & ARTS PRODUCTION STUDIO (MAPS)
Our flagship production facility in Fullerton, CA has been named “Best Studio in Orange County” by OC Weekly readers (2011), and artists who record here have garnered 58 OC Music Awards nominations since 2010.
4. DO-IT-YOURSELF SERVICES
Like to do it yourself? Looking for great deal on reliable services like mastering and disc manufacturing? After releasing hundreds of albums, we’ve learned who the reliable vendors are. Which services are worth it. When to pay for the add-on thingie. At our DIY Services site, you’ll find we recommend only vendors and services we have used and believe in.
5. PERSONALIZED HELP
Need royalties explained? Guidance on how to split songwriting credit among your mates? Need to know how to best market your new album? Looking for conflict resolution in your band? We’ve seen it all throughout the years, and we’re happy to get you unstuck. Hourly hire rates available, as well as larger ongoing consulting contracts.
