Since this time, the platform has evolved into a community of independent artists, moving towards a common goal, and provides publicity through an online magazine, playlists and YouTube channel, as well as providing periodic workshops and resources to support independent and emerging artists.

“Independent Discovery (Volume 1)” is available for pre-order now and will be available for streaming and purchase on all major platforms starting February 1st.
