Record Label in a Box supports homelessness charity
May 17, 2016
We love to support good causes here at Ditto Music, so when we had the opportunity to help out a homelessness charity with Record Label in a Box, we jumped at the chance!
The story began last year when unsigned artist Stan Blade signed up to Ditto Music, and after releasing two singles and a live album, he was noticed by independent label Ambiel Music, where he is now currently working on contracts to sign a full debut album deal.
However, releasing his own music and getting picked up by a label just wasn’t enough, so in order to raise awareness of homelessness, an issue by which he has been personally affected, he decided to start his own record label to back a cause close to his heart, naming the label Hidden Homeless Southend Records, aka HHS Records.
As well as championing the cause of the so-called hidden homeless and sofa-surfers, Stan wanted to establish his label in the hope that the music he released can in time fund a charity and run a homeless hostel teaching art, music and skills. What a fantastic idea!
We were so inspired by Stan’s ambition and drive to help those less fortunate that we decided to offer him Record Label in a Box for free!
Charities like Stan’s need all the help they can get, and we believe that Record Label in a Box offers the perfect platform from which to achieve success. And with such good intentions at the heart of Stan’s plan, we felt it was only right to offer it as a gift to him in a show of support!
Stan’s first EP will be released through HHS Records, with 100% of all profits going towards raising the money to start his new homelessness charity.
He’s currently busy promoting his music and his charity work, and you can see Stan Blade live at Chinnerys on 27th May as he supports a Beans On Toast event in his home town of Southend for what's shaping up to be a sellout show!
Good luck Stan, from everyone at Ditto Music!
