“Behind every great label... sits an insurmountable pile of paperwork.”

Or so the story goes. We all know what it’s like. With legal and business affairs work, there’s a constant pressure to deal with the big, urgent stuff. So the routine paperwork, like producer/mixer/featured artist agreements, sample clearances, synch licenses and so on, start to stack up.

They need to get done, but finding the time in the working week to plough through them may be a headache you could do without.

We’re a small firm, so we’ve had to build our business by streamlining the way in which we process paperwork. 

We use collaborative technology and a version of the “kanban” methodology (similar to that deployed by software developers and tech businesses), to improve workflow and get stuff done.

It’s a bit geeky, but it’s pretty cool. And it works.

We’re best known for our forward thinking work with independent artists, but we’re delighted to now be applying the same principles of transparency and collaboration to our work with an increasing number of labels and publishers.

If you’d like to arrange a call or meeting to find out more about how we can help your business, please get in touch.
