Incubated from the 2014 Cape Breton Creative Economy conference, Buds Entertainment Inc. provides a platform for young emerging artists to cooperatively pursue and develop their businesses in the arts and music industry through a practical and socially driven entrepreneurial process. We have started a movement called Young Superstars, which encompasses our vision. In October 2015, Buds Entertainment organized a Hip-Hop Canada showcase and panel featuring 11 Nova Scotian artists at the renowned A3C Festival & Conference in Atlanta, GA.
SXSW Music is the largest music festival of its kind in the world, with more than 2,000 acts as of 2014. The music event has grown from 700 registrants in 1987 to over 28,000 registrants.
Mitchell Bailey, 18, of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, is a co-founder of Buds Entertainment Inc. and began his hip-hop career at the age of 15 when he released his first mixtape. Mitchell has performed at various showcases across North America including Pop Explosion in Montreal, Canada, the A3C Festival in Atlanta, GA, along with headlining his own tour across Atlantic Canada this past fall. He just released his fourth album "Young Superstars" which includes features from a selection of established Canadian rappers. Mitchell is now spending lots of time in the studio as of late working on his new project, which is yet to be titled and scheduled for release later this year.
Brendan Lyle aka Moose, 17, is a video director, editor, and camera operator out of Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. He started his own video production company at the age of 15 and since then has worked on videos for artists such as Dr. Dre, Father, Matthew Good, Quake Matthews, Mitchell Bailey and many more. Moose has also directed, shot and edited the official music video for Universal Soul's "All Out (The Anthem REMIX)" which placed in HipHopCanada's Top 10 Nova Scotia Rap Videos of 2014.
Risks and challenges
Traveling from Cape Breton, we always have to be mindful of the winter weather. We often receive serious storms in March, which may affect our travel, however, we have allowed for potential delays in our travel plans. If Snowmageddon hits us, it is possible that we may not be able to leave the province during this time...Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
