MEDIA & PROMOTION
Via our website, Tik Tok, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook we do an array of features to highlight the up and coming talent in Country Music. There are many different layers to our features. Some are once a year like UPstar. Music's "Artists to Watch" and the "Top Songs of 2022" whereas others appear on a regular basis - like posting a variety of artist content, "New Music Friday"playlists, "Saturday's Rising Picks" etc. We try to find creative ways to promote artists in an effort to promote exposure to fans, as well as the business side of the industry. Our goal is to get creatives noticed and help them stay relevant doing what you love.
Our motto is "Family Over Everything", because we truly care about every individual who is trying to make it in this crazy industry. The work we do is never about clout chasing or getting in with the hottest artists, it's about giving each person a voice and opportunity to be successful. We strategically work with Country Music creatives to find the right path for them. UPstar. Music is a community set up to be able to network and meet other like minded individuals. As we progress on the business aspects of UPstar. Music, our top priority is to develop an effective "Country Music LinkedIn" for both creatives and business folks to network with one another and put everyone in a position to win and further their career. The methodology of UPstar. Music may be different than most because we don't believe in give and take... our goal each is to provide every opportunity we can - big or small - and not ask for anything in return.

We work with artists on the ground floor when things aren't always glamorous and work to provide opportunities when others won't. We are not a paid Artist Development company and do everything we can to help rising artists find success in a variety of ways and work with them over time. At UPstar. Music, we firmly believe every artist has their own path and reaches success at their own pace. Whether an artist is the hottest rising star in the genre or going through ups and downs, we are always there. Nothing makes us happier than to work with an artist for a few years and watch them grind everyday to finally find success. That's why we do what we do.
