About

The First Print Magazine For Artistpreneurs.

The Art Has Been Missing In Music Journalism—Until Now!

The music scene is booming with a new hybrid of artists and entrepreneurs we call Artistpreneurs™, but there’s currently no publication in print that caters to this growing group. STUDIO BUMS™ is designed to fill that void with a print magazine dedicated to music lifestyle for people who are serious about their craft and business.

Behind STUDIO BUMS™ is a solid background of music professionals such as Ivan “Orthodox” Barias, a Grammy nominated songwriter/producer. Combine that with Jef Fortson aka Def Jef, an ASCAP award winning songwriter and producer. As well as co-founder Theodore Perry, aka Swell, a producer/journalist who has been documenting the music production scene since 2004.

Above: The Black Eyed Peas video titled "Yesterday" featuring the classic DEF JEF vinyl record of "Here We Go Again". Check out the official STUDIO BUMS™ interview with DEF JEF.  DEFYING THE ODDS Part One.

We are living in an era of the music business where the Artistpreneur™ wears many hats. And, while technology continues to become more digitized, we’ve chosen to go back to the basics in the form of a print publication designed to complement these hybrid lifestyles.

Above: Ivan Barias (produced Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Estelle, and more) talks about H.R.1283 Songwriter Equity Act of 2015. The goal is to amend two sections, 114 and 115, of the Copyright Act. The current law prevents songwriters and composers from receiving royalties which reflect the fair market value of their IP (Intellectual Property).

We Need Your Support, Ideas, and Excitement!

Quality magazines are expensive to produce, and technically more challenging than launching just another one-of-a-million websites in cyberspace. Our mission is simple: To document music culture in ink. Kickstarter is an excellent platform for us to introduce the STUDIO BUMS™ magazine to the world.

The premier issue of STUDIO BUMS™ print magazine can be produced with your pledges. We have some great packages that include a premier copy of STUDIO BUMS™ delivered to your door. Check out some of the rewards you can receive from pledging to support the STUDIO BUMS™ Kickstarter campaign.

The Magazine is packaged in a Special Edition logo box with every reward level $80 and above. 

STUDIO BUMS™ two-tone classic logo 16 oz. ceramic mug—matte outside with gloss finish inside and on rim for a sleek color-coordinated look.  

Every cap is presented in a STUDIO BUMS™ custom hat box.   

STUDIO BUMS™ authentic "Artist Athletics" NEW ERA 9FIFTY Snapback.

STUDIO BUMS™ official logo Tee (100% cotton crew neck).

 

When your music takes you places we’ve got your back.   

The ŌDIO Backpack (17.23” x 7.25” x 13.60) is a vintage rucksack travel backpack, constructed of military-green canvas and trimmed with rich coffee-brown leather.  

The versatility of the main compartment is perfectly suited for carrying portable studio gear (midi keyboard, laptop, headphones, small audio interface, mini hard drive, etc.)  

The interior includes one zippered pocket and two small pouches for smart devices. 

"ONE LOVE" 3D art print of Bob Marley was illustrated by renowned graffiti/award-winning artist, Steve Cas.

Bob Marley’s iconic dreadlocks, fittingly represented as music notes, symbolize how steadfastly his spirituality was woven into his music. The influence of his legacy remains an inspiration to generations new and old.

The "ONE LOVE" art print of Bob Marley will be featured in the premier print issue of STUDIO BUMS™.

Risks and challenges

Quality printing, photography, hiring writers, organizing promotions, sourcing distribution, web design, etc, is expensive, Being Artistpreneurs™ ourselves, we’ve done an extensive amount of research in preparation for the anticipated challenges typical of a Kickstarter project such as this, as well as for putting the infrastructure in place to make this an ongoing venture.

However, with Kickstarter, it’s ALL or Nothing. Your contribution will be rescinded if we don’t reach our goal.
