What is Live Vision:
Music has always been limitless and unbiased, resonating in the ear of every person regardless of age, culture, or upbringing.
We; LIVE VISION are the collective, the conglomerate; the industry professionals who lead the blind into the light. LIVE VISION was built to help further develop musicians in this ever-evolving music industry. Our full service team specializes in the macro management of artists along with their management, giving them the direction to further their own movement. Our talented and knowledgeable team collectively has over 18 years of industry experience.
Setting the bar and raising the standards, LIVE VISION is overcoming the plateau and bridging the gap between the music industry and the artist. We have designed foolproof plans designed to push the indie artist to the ultimate level of success via: viral, newspaper, magazine, touring, and full-out exposure.
Too good to be true? Who the hell does LIVE VISION think they are, Def Jam? Not at all. We are not trying to portray ourselves or follow the same path as the great Simmons, but instead take the well-oiled tools our country possesses and create a universal hub for all indie artists, promoters, managers, fans, music lovers, industry haters, and those that are just interested in a buzzing name floating the airwaves.
LIVE VISION have worked with and work for an abundance of world class artists including Dutch Robinson, D.O., Slakah the Beatchild, Moka Only, J Bru, Mic Boogie, Son Real, Glen Lewis, Genetically Modified Beats (Taiwan) and DJ Coco Fresh just to name a few.
With our +900 blog roll, online magazine (getlivemag.com), and social network savvy we have the resources and outlets to limelight any artist’s talent. Our company contains the very valuable assets that most large corporations pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for, while we have it at the tip of our fingers.
LIVE VISION services include and are not limited to:
Music Video production
Viral/ Social networking
Mix tape and album development
LIVE VISION understands the challenges of an indie artist, wearing the many hats (manager, advertiser, writer, etc.) while still trying to maintain their creative artistic side. From packed clubs and large festivals to empty bars, LIVE VISION has been there and is here to offer the support and guidance to take your career to the next level.
You must understand; you are more than just an artist, but a business in your own right. Never forget, this is not the music industry, but the industry of music.
Press Kit Preparation and Design
The purpose of a PK is to help promote your music to DJ’s, Promoters, and Management. As an artist, you put too much energy into your music not to be noticed. Your press kit should leave the best impression possible. Live Vision PK’s help you make an impact on key industry insiders.
While you may be tempted to just use one or the other, it is very important that you always create a physical press kit.
Not only are these more likely to be received by booking agents and A&R reps from record labels, but they can be customized in a way that the EPKs cannot, which is essential to making your press kit as attractive as possible. Not to say that EPKs are bad, because they are still a very helpful tool for promoting your music to bloggers and other online publications. But if you do decide to make one, make sure that it
does not completely replace your use of physical press kits.
One of the biggest advantages of working with Live Vision is that we are capable of completing any project undertaken from beginning to end. Live Vision aims at providing services focused on effectively communicating our customer’s ideas through design solutions that are creative and impressive without compromising on the more practical aspects of marketability and usage, and at the most reasonable rates possible.

The importance of image has become one of the biggest factors in success for anyone selling a product. If you’re a creative artist, be it in the form of an actor, dancer, model or musician (singer, DJ, producer or part of a band); then YOU are the product.
Having a selection of quality photographs for use in press packs, magazine interviews, online galleries and websites is a must. Your photos are not just being sent out to close friends and family. They will be in public circulation for promotional purposes. You need to impress.
