TALISMAN MUSIC GROUP

Talisman Music Group is an independent artist consulting group that elevates artists to their maximum potential by working with them to build a powerful foundation of support in New England. It's an honor to be on their roster.

The Secret bureau of art and design

Jenny Bergman and her collective of talented designers, videographers, stylists, and more are an artistic force to be reckoned with. Their strong focus on storytelling has made them a trusted collaborator among the Boston music community. The Secret Bureau also offers mini-sessions every Tuesday for those who need a new set of head shots, like, right now.

REVOLUTION SOUND STUDIO

Dave, Aaron, Andy, and Matt at Revolution Sound in Charlestown, MA are top class. Flexible and affordable for independent artists, the studio has a great collection of gear and most importantly: knowledgeable, easy-going staff. I'm proud to have recorded When Reality Calls there.

QRST's

Peter and the team at QRST's are always my first call when I need a new order of t-shirts and merch. Located in Somerville, MA, they've got deep roots in the Boston music scene, are members of the Fair Labor Association, and make meaningful donations to organizations like Right Turn and The MS Society of New England.

Union press

Eli at Union Press handcrafts posters and prints the old fashioned way. Located in Somerville, MA, the shop specializes in handset wood and metal type and hand carved imagery. He also offers workshops and collaborates with local businesses to bring traditional letterpress printing into the community.

Fasten

Fasten is an alternative to popular, ethically-questionable ride-share services. Operating in Boston, MA and Austin, TX, Fasten is a socially-conscious way to safely travel to and from shows. The company puts their drivers first: rather than charge the typical 20-30% commission, Fasten takes only $1 per ride. And for the riders? No surge pricing means late night trips are cheaper.
