Heatrage Records (a Division of Heatrock Ent, Inc.)
Welcome to Heatrage where we exist to help you the real artists, the underdog, achieve greatness where others dont believe in you and only want to see you fail!
Heatrage was born due to the frustration we real artists face and go thru everyday, due to the politics govern by the majors corporates, and those that doesnt want us to make it, (damn haters) that set up rules only to benefit them, the rich or the ones with the right connections with no real talent what so ever, and having no one believe in us but us artists with real and rare talent.
So we Heatrage decided to break every rule, law, regulation, company code or whatever stood in our way of our dreams in order to get to where we are and going and you know we artists are what makes it works! For every hater out there in metal, hip hop, rock, punk or pop there are dozens of fans and supporters. Heatrage we are here to stay...
Heatrage's interest is rooted in the primary social development and economic advancement of the indie community, by providing cultural enlightenment and opportunities via the arts and entertainment; Music (record label/publishing, recording studio/production), Television/Film Production (actors, writers, voice-over Artists, Producers & Directors), Marketing/Advertising (newsletters, site blogs, corporate sponsorship of events), and by providing & assisting the indie community with development via business management, investment, real eastate (business & property ownership), and by providing a non profit organization (heatrock.org) for the less fortunates & hoping to bring attention to the lack of opportunities within the underprivileged community and countries.
Co Founders / President:
Established by three Entrepreneurs/Artists/Songwriters/Producers. by the name of Ricardo "Sky Dalimit" Pierre, Gregory "Joe Dessa" Faustin, and Victor E. Warren. who are artists, songwriters, and producers as well, and that still believes in developing artists, which is something the majors forgot how to do these days, "now the major labels just invest in singles, not building careers by focusing on long-term album sales. "They dump hundred of thousands dollars into an act and then hope it hits big. if it doesn't they drop the artist who is still on the hook for huge recording and touring costs" says Ricardo "Sky Dalimit " Pierre Co-CEO of Heatrage (a division of Heatrock Ent, Inc.)
Truth be told, the odds of hitting it big are quite small. Of the more than 27,000 CDs released since 2002, only 404 sold more than 100,000 copies. About 25,000 sold fewer than 1,000 copies. Heatrage (a Division of Heatrock Ent, Inc.) as an independent label can and will offer artists the opportunity to build a following while putting their artistic stamps on all aspects of their production-from the recording to the CD cover art.
Just like their parent comany Heatrock Ent, Inc. they still believes that as an independent label corporation Heatrage is more than sympathetic to what an artist is trying to do and can help them get there. They won't be shipping 40-50 thousand units they may be shipping 2-3 thousand units-but their margins are different. Not to mention the way artists are treated (we treat them more as partners). Heatrage (Heatrock) gives artists the support they need, believe in what they're doing, and see the niche for them, we will get the music to their audience, and the artists end up making more profit than they might be making on a major label.
At the end of the day with their visions and savvy skills in the Entertainment business, those three young entrepreneurs Ricardo "Sky Dalimit" Pierre, Gregory "Joe Dessa" Faustin and Victor Warren are looking foward to and will make HEATRAGE an all-inclusive entertainment company.
