YOUR MUSIC. YOUR CALL.
Golden Poppy is an artist focused alternative to a traditional record label or management deal.
"I saw the distrust that had been sown between musicians and music executives over decades of mismanagement and lack of respect in the music industry. It is almost a cliche at this point to to see a manager take advantage of a musician. I have been a professional musician since I was 13 and have been working for record labels for years; so, to me, there had to be a way for the two sides of the industry to meet in respect and harmony. I had the opportunity to work for Ropeadope Records before I moved to Los Angeles. I loved how they put their artists first and, as a musician, I wanted to start a company that held onto that spirit and also offered musicians an alternative to a traditional record label and management structure."
- Founder; Michaela D. Jordan: Shoutout LA Interview
Golden Poppy provides everything an artist needs including representation, career strategy/consultation, social media management, marketing, promotion, booking, distribution via Symphonic, sync licensing via our alliance with Missing Link Music Publishing and more.
However, unlike a traditional 360 record label, management structure or anything else that provides similar services, the power and rights to all of the work remains with the artist.
Golden Poppy charges a flat hourly rate for our services; the amount being set by the artist based on their needs.
This system was brought about by 13 years of experience in the music industry as an artist and working for various record labels. Our founder, Michaela D. Jordan created a way to provide artists with the vital services that they required without the dilemma of them sacrificing the rights to their music, their royalties or their performance fees.
Above all else: Golden Poppy is by artists, for artists and in the service of artists; empowering them to forge their own path in a rapidly changing industry.
