Helpful Music wants to help. We want to help listeners. We want to help artists. We don’t really think about music in terms of genre: our first few releases range from acid techno, to rap, to outsider art rock, to ambient electronic, etc. etc. Instead, Helpful Music just wants to put out great music from all corners of the present landscape. Every artist has a different path to the truth, we just want to chart a map with a bunch of these paths, to help contemporary listeners find the work they need in their lives. Further, the goal over here is to empower fellow artists with what we've learned about the music industry. To help people get up on their feet and get their music out to a bunch of people and hopefully build on this to get stuff like: record deals, managers, booking agents, etc. All the stuff you need to have some infrastructure so you can focus on making your art and discovering/inventing yourself as an artist. In a word, Helpful wants to help people who love music by digging and protecting a trustworthy well: we think you'll find the artists we put out very helpful in your life. Above all, though, Helpful wants to help artists become the artists they want to become.
