Red & Black Music was created in 2012, in response to the lack professionalism in business, especially in the arts. Often individuals working in the arts are talented at what they do, but do not have the professional and business skills that are so essential in this field. Many individuals are inefficient, incapable of communicating, and assume that by simply not answering messages, people will conclude that they are not interested. Many individuals talk brilliantly about what they do, but are incapable of providing dates and quotations upon request. Many individuals are simply disorganised or do not have time because it is ironically their inefficiency that renders them without time in the first place. Many people advertise their wares, but do not leave a link or a means of contacting them; they wave a flag, and disappear without a trace, leaving behind a trail of inconsistency without resolution. Many individuals cannot say yes or no (and, in some cases, cannot even say maybe), and simply let unanswered questions proliferate into obscurity.
Red & Black Music is unique from other artists, because we take a radically quantifiable, purely logical, straightforward approach towards business. With us, every question is answered, and no solutions are left unresolved. If we do not hear back from you, then we refuse to accept this as a lack of interest. We will provide information, dates, quotations on request. We have time for everyone even if we do not believe in it. We will not make false promises, and we will not disappear unless we are defeated (in which case we would let you know). We will say yes or no to everything, and provide feedback and referrals if the answer is maybe.
