It was revealed earlier this week that world famous Canadian singer, Carly Rae Jepsen used to fund her band’s wages through selling t shirts. The singer, best known for hit, “Call Me Maybe” has spoken about her financial struggles prior to her recent success and has explained how during this period she would have to rush from her caravan to her merchandising table to keep her career on track.
The revelation is not an uncommon one for up and coming artists in the spotlight and 8 Ball, the nation’s leading retailer of custom made t shirts, received the news with particular interest. A representative of the company offers their thoughts on the matter.
“It’s always intriguing to make discoveries about other peoples’ connections to our industry. Carly Rae Jepson is not the first example of a pop star selling t shirts to fund their career. What’s interesting is that some of these famous icons later appear on the front of t shirts themselves.”
The team at 8 Ball comment further on the close relationship between the two industries.
“There has always been a significant connection between the fashion and music industries so it’s always interesting to hear stories like this. At 8 Ball we place a large emphasis on popular culture, particularly the music scene and we’re always expanding our collection.”
