HOW WE DO IT
Our first step was to identify, understand and effectively overcome the inherent challenges the independent artist faces today…as well as answer some unanswered questions.
How do I get better gigs and attendance? How do I attract a reliable booking and press agent? How do I land a distribution or record deal, or get more out of my current label? How do I grow beyond where I'm at right now? Etc etc…
We've answered these questions by providing something different than the traditional record deal, or dated DIY effort.
As an independent artist with or without a label, the artist often must pay exorbitant amounts of money to hire a complete team or do nearly everything themselves.This is simply not sustainable.
Instead, Bread and Circuses' deploys a 'one stop shop', campaign-based approach allowing our artists' to enjoy a competent and seasoned team, for a fraction of the typical investment.
Also, our 'one stop shop' approach vastly improves team communication and accountability over the typical practice of hiring multiple entities.
The aforementioned, coupled with field-tested and proprietary strategies is how Bread and Circuses' clients are able to blaze a sustainable path.
