Last night we went out to the Music Garage to watch as artists signed on with the record label Chicago Creed. We were particularly thrilled for Featured Rapper Lil Kaotik, who we’ve been watching for some time now. It was a very joyous occasion as these artists took a major step in their careers.
Joy Management & Chicago Creed came together to bring in these artists & help take them to the next level. As the Joy Management mantra goes, “It’s about to go down”. These talented individuals will be able to really make a living doing what they love.
Along with Lil Kaotik, artists Uneqka (Unique), Chas (Chase), DJ Lady Cherry & Just Flo also signed deals with Chicago Creed. All were artists under Joy Management, who also manages legendary group The Whispers. There to welcome the artists was Chicago Creed senior partner Joan Sullivan & director Michael Towns.
Chicago Creed is a partnership between Urban Ideas & The Music Garage. The idea behind Chicago Creed is a membership based platform for packaging, placing, and promoting local artists. Their motto is artist drive music solutions. Many know that The Music Garage is a major fixture in Chicago’s music scene welcoming major artists both locally & all over.
Joy Management grew organically from the entrepreneurial spirit and quest for excellence of Pamela J. Blackman. Having achieved five under graduate and graduate degrees in the areas of education, human behavior, and society, psychology and social work, Ms. Blackman has a keen perspective on society, its trends and needs and how artists can best flourish in this environment. She has owned Kiddie Academy Learning Center’s I and II for the past 22 years. It was there that she developed a sincere interest in people and their talents. Watching and nurturing children and their families has lead to a desire to facilitate young talented artists, including ‘below the line’ technicians who bring the artists talents to life.
It was a great event. We’re sure we’ll be seeing & hearing much more from this label & these artists. Congratulations to all involved. Doing Chicago proud.
