Online music hub, likeZEBRA, is on a mission to rekindle the indie music flame, one independent artist at a time. On Thursday, July 1, 2010 at 8 p.m., likeZEBRA will debut their newest breakout artist, Wildwood Music Co., with an EP release party at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California. The performance marks a significant achievement for the Los Angeles-based band, as well as an exciting moment for likeZEBRA’s indie music movement.
Long-time independent musicians, Wildwood Music Co. members are no strangers to the obstacles of the highly crowded and competitive music industry. The band decided to turn to likeZEBRA, the innovative networking hub for independent musicians and fans, for help. In partnership with new media company Stripe Entertainment Group, likeZEBRA provided the members of Wildwood Music Co. with the tools to record, produce, promote and distribute their music while accessing a larger fan base of listeners who crave independent music.
“likeZEBRA aims to create sustainability for our artists in the music business,” says Jon Taggart, likeZEBRA Director of A&R. “By providing the tools necessary to thrive in such a difficult arena, likeZEBRA really is reigniting the independent music movement.”
With a mission to reignite the indie music movement, likeZEBRA has garnered a cult following among fans who crave undiscovered music. Currently hosting the world’s largest independent music database, likeZEBRA provides unsigned musicians and artists with the competitive edge they need to showcase and promote their music to an extensive audience. The company’s recent partnership with Stripe Entertainment Group was just one more way of augmenting the indie experience for both artists and fans. For Wildwood Music Co., the access and reach provided by likeZEBRA and Stripe Entertainment Group proved to be invaluable.
Wildwood Music Co. was also able to leverage Stripe Entertainment Group’s resources to do a professional band photo shoot, design merchandise, posters and promotional items, and book a performance at a famous Los Angeles venue. Now, Wildwood Music Co. is ready to release its highly anticipated self-titled EP and prove that independent musicians can thrive and monetize.
“Social media and likeZEBRA’s various new tools have made it possible for independent musicians to thrive,” adds Taggart. “We know this is the right direction for the future of music and independent artists and are excited to see them utilized to their fullest.”
