Outlanders Productions is an independent company with the purpose of supporting and promoting emerging and established artists. Based in Finland, the company operates also in Europe and the main activity includes artist management, promotion, concert production and event organizing.
The company was created in May 2013, when moved by our deep love for music, we decided to join the sinking business and try to live our dreams. Not an easy path, but surely lot of fun.
A song inspired our name, but its meaning was part of our history before. None of us is living in the country we were born in. We left behind borders and boundaries a long time ago and music helped us in that. It is time to pay back.
These days, many artists and creators are struggling due to numerous problems in modern music business. There is lack of transparency, unfairness, inefficiency and low payout for artists. However, there are number of people and organization that recognize these problems and try to change that. We share this vision and the direction to fully support instant and transparent payments and to create open-source platform for artists as well as try to reduce issue of piracy.
Now, at the end of 2015, we are adding new chapter to our story - we are starting "New Stars - Fair Trade music business for every artists" platform and services. We want to make life more easy for emerging artists and more fair for established artists and we strongly believe that intermediaries should work for the artists, not the other way around.
Outlanders Productions proposes a new digital platform and services for artists, record labels and publishers in general, based on the above-mentioned principles of what we suggest to call “Fair Trade Publishing” and which is based on the emerging blockchain technology. The services offer transparency of payments (including royalties, based on so-called smart contracts), fast and secure payments and artistic freedom, which are applied to digital distribution.
The outline of such platform is presented on the next video
