They proclaim it and it’s true! “Founded in 2020, SO FIERCE MUSIC is a new kind of music & entertainment company for artists marginalized and disadvantaged by the mainstream music industry because of gender or sexual identity. Founder and CEO Velvet Code (internationally acclaimed, award winning Artist/Producer) states, ‘I have experienced first-hand how difficult it is for an LGBTQ+ artist to be seen and heard, not only in the music industry, but in the world. It’s time for change’.”
“The change is now,” they continue. “SO FIERCE MUSIC provides Artists’ professional direction and a proven path forward, guiding artists while providing an established platform for success. All while celebrating the diversity of our client roster and their individual talents. We are perfect as we are. In fact, WE ARE SO FIERCE.”
