“As an artist, who is based out of L.A. & the Middle East, I’ve seen the struggles and limitations artists experience trying to get themselves heard through media outlets relevant to the Middle East region.  I felt it was necessary to create a place where Middle Eastern artists could be found and recognized for their work.  With our goal is to not only provide artists a place to have their music showcased, but we also hope to create celebrity around them and help break them into the regional & international markets,” says founder, Deen.

Using as a tool to break mainstream artists into the Middle East region and vice versa, the site will have spotlight and contributors from major labels to assist with scouting efforts and placements.
