Creative Emissions: Back in the swing of things

By Bryan West

In 2009 my friend, Mr. Jon Jennings, decided to launch a record label and concert promotion organization. I say “organization” because there is very little money to be made in the local music scene. If you break even after a show, it’s a damn good night.

It was sort of like a disco-tech for the modern age. Continue reading
