“We know feminism, we do music business …”
Since the beginning of 2019 our label boss has participated in the “Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs” program of the EU Commission and works for and with one of the most successful punk rock labels in the world: SBÄM Records from Austria.
SBÄM does the artwork for almost all punk rock bands in the world (NOFX, Sum41 and Offspring, etc.) and organizes their own festival and various club shows twice a year. The label is also trying to book more artists for the SBÄM Fest – and works for the feminist band “Bad Cop/Bad Cop”, among others.
Since working with us, SBÄM Records has been labeling the third “female band”* in a row and we have set up an awareness concept** for the festivals, which is an isolated case in Europe.
In brief: We support each other to achieve our goals and to make the music business a little better.
*the term “female band” should generally not be used. This does not contribute to the desired “equality of the sexes” and in this case has to be considered in context.
**an awareness concept consists of measures to avoid any form of border violation, violence and discrimination through sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic or transphobic acts and attitudes.
