We’ve gained a reputation in the music industry for all the right reasons, and while we don’t like to boast (who are we kidding?!), we’ve supplied large festivals like Bestival and numerous high caliber artists - see some of these here.
But enough about us, let's talk about you... Musicians come in many forms - Youtube artists, small bands doing local gigs, and even those touring the nation, or many nations. The common theme among them all, is that it’s becoming increasingly harder to make money in the industry.
However merchandise can be a very different ball game, and can be an amazing way to generate that much needed revenue. In fact numerous significant clothing labels have been formed by musicians:
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz – Clandestine Clothing
Liam Gallagher – Pretty Green
N*E*R*D’s Pharrell – Billionaire Boys Club
Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes – Drop Dead Clothing
Kanye West – DW, Yeezi, Yeezy
Kings of Leon – Surface to Air
Wu Tang Clan – Wu Wear
The list goes on….
Additionally, the rise of merchandise as a viable income source has been further validated by the latest introduction of merchandise to Spotify.
So whether it’s band merchandise, your own line of branded products, or something else - printed and embroidered clothing is a great route to take.
So the question now is what clothing to choose, there’s all kinds of products available, from ethical t-shirts, to organic hoodies, and even Fairtrade tote bags.
