Where It All Began
Born in 2008 – in a Northern California home studio. Founder & Managing Director William Robinson envisioned a new business model. He wanted to keep creating, while fullfiling physical and digital releases. Having to save time and resources so that he could focus on his art. This began the shift towards independent artists administration and commerce.
UNEARTHED HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED BY 25 YEAR MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN ROBINSON. TO COMBAT IMMORAL PRACTICES OF DISTRIBUTORS. ATTEMPTING TO PLACE VENDORS, ARTISTS, LABELS AND SUPPLIERS IN DEBT. APART OF THE ONGOING VALUATION OF SEVERAL CONTRACTS BETWEEN CLIENTS & DISTRIBUTORS. ROBINSON FOUND A MERE RELUCTANCE TO PAY. AND OR DISCLOSE PROPER INVENTORY, DESTINATION AND PERTINENT INFORMATION NEEDED. LOPSIDED WIN/LOSE AGREEMENTS IN FAVOR OF THE HOUSE LEAVE VENDORS AND SUPPLIERS IN THE COLD. “THIS IS UNBEARABLE, EXTORTIONATE, MANIPULATIVE AND MORALLY BANKRUPT.” ROBINSON EXCLAIMS. UNEARTHED DOES NOT ASK FOR ANY UN-AGREED FEES OR PAYMENTS AS A PROMISE TO CONTINUE MANUFACTURING OR DISTRIBUTING. NOR, REFUSING TO PAY INVOICES OR RETURN GOODS UNTIL SAID FEES WHERE PAID. UNEARTHED DOES NOT DISRUPT MANUFACTURING, PACKAGING, SELLING AND PAYOUT OF PROCEEDS FROM EVENTS. THE JIZA PROGRAM IS BASED ON CLEAR, TRANSPARENT AND UPFRONT RECORD KEEPING.
