Music Department

Our Founder, Kellee Maize, is also a rapper/singer/songwriter. We have work with a team, employing viral marketing techniques to grow her following. Since her second album, Aligned Archetype was released in January of 2010, she became the #1 downloaded hip hop and dance album on Amazon and Frostwire with over 400,000 downloads, she released 15+ music videos, and she has had over 150 articles written about her. If you have an interest in the music industry, this is a great opportunity to learn how to make it big, without the help of a record label. An interest in hip hop or dance music is preferable but not required.
