In 2017, I met two young creatives in Machakos, Kenya, Anthony Yawe and Doris Wairimu. They had this dream of starting a recording studio, but didn’t have the resources to do so.
This didn’t deter them and they had started recording artists in their living room.
I promised I’d help them set up their online presence.
I saw them again this year, about 4 years after we first met. They have made progress with their work, and still have the vision of setting up a state of the art recording studio. In the meantime, they continue to make it possible for other young people in Machakos to get their voices heard by recording podcasts, music tracks, and videos.
We’ve been in communication since we first met. I kept my promise to them and slowly, their online presence has come together. In June this year, their website was finally complete.
They are now preparing to begin an effort to crowdfund for their dream studio.

I believe that every serious artist should be able to make a living from their work if they want to and I’m on a mission to find the best tools, ideas, and resources to help artists succeed. I experiment with business models, monetization ideas, and new technology in my own creative process as part of this journey of discovering.
