November 13, 2012 by David Weiss
We’ve covered Brooklyn-based producer/musician/label owner Matty Amendola before in SonicScoop – no one works harder, and his enthusiasm for all things music is palpable.
Now Amendola, who founded the indie label 825 Records, has just rolled out FRODUCTIONS, a music production company that offers “label-like services” for independent artists on a global scale.
Services offered by FRODUCTIONS include music production, artist development. composing and scoring. In addition, Amendola and his team are making these services available not just to artists, but also to other industry professionals including music supervisors, managers and producers.
There are a range of core offerings coming out of FRODUCTIONS, including:
Indie Add-On: Provides efficient and effective marketing and publicity packages for artists. Independent artists are provided with a team of industry professionals to assist them with development, promotion and long-term marketing and digital strategy. The objective is to help to build fan bases, create dynamic campaigns and provide tangible results.
Tracks Via FTP: Allows artists to send their music “via FTP”, after which FRODUCTIONS can add on to it, with everything from a single instrument to full band instrumentation, vocals, mixing and more.
Clients of Indie Add-Ons and/or Tracks Via FTP have included Vinnie Zummo of the Joe Jackson Band, and the Middle Collegiate Church album Welcome composed and produced by stage and screen actor Tituss Burgess.
“My label, 825 Records, is still moving strong and we already have scheduled releases for early 2013,” says Amendola, “but FRODUCTIONS is now allowing me to work and help more independent artists on a grander scale. I am not only helping them with their development of their sound as an artist, but I am utilizing all of my knowledge as a label owner to consult with them on everything from sending press kits to media to licensing placements.”
