The Company

Octavia Multimedia Group Ltd.  (www.octaviamusic.co.uk) consist of a group of companies under the heading of (Octavia Multimedia Group) as a One Stop Shop Music Platform.  It aims is to establish a platform in the music industry.  To support up and coming and existing artists, musicians, to achieve success or make a living in the music industry.  And to have the mind set as plumbers, electricians and bricklayers in the building trade.  In doing so give jobs and support to all the other services that are important to getting, supporting and promoting an individual to have a career and make a living in the music industry.

Observation

In our experience, we are aware that there are very talanted individuals, young and old, existing and up and coming, who are making such commitment to their art, and are struggling to get any return moneywise for that effort.  Especially in this digital era.  In every industry, we realised there a percentage that would never make it, or benefit for from what they do.  No matter what help or support given to them.  But in the music industry, the percentage of failure is very high.  And we believe its because the lack of support. 

Yesteryear

In the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and sisties, there were more of a chance of making a living, be in just gigging locally or nationally.  And a few make it to international fame, but there were also a very strong middle group, that played at wedding, parties, holiday camps and business functions.  And they got paid and on a very basic standard, they made a living.  Be it with a dream, that one they they would hit the big time.  And some did, because it became the feeding trouft for industries to feed from, when they needed a new icon, to earn them the bigbox.

We are no way against that sort of system of by gone days, although lots of people suffered.  But it produced memorable icons and at least more artists, musicians, singers and performers, had a chance and got paid.  In todays digital era, less and less artists, musicians get paid when they perform.  Some drive long distance to play on a promise.

One Stop Shop Music Platform

Octavia Multimedia Group Ltd.  (Octaviamusic) is working towards creating a One Stop Shop Music Platform.  With its subsidary companies, Octavia Records Ltd., Octavia Artist Management Ltd., Octavia Music Publishing Ltd.,  Octavia Artists Ltd.,  Octavia Studio Ltd.,  Octavia Music Magazine Ltd.,  Octavia Music Shop Ltd. And will work in colaboration with these music industry companies for the benefit of the artists and musicians.  But these services would only be accessable to those that register and subscribe to our artist management section of our One Stop Shop Music Platform.  That is the start, the entry, to our support and promotion.

How it Works

And this is how it works:  You (the artist) would register to get an account with the company (octavia Multimedia Group) (octaviaMusic).  Then, Subscribe to one of the management section in Octavia ArtistManagement.  (Standard, Premium, Gold and Full Management)  From that point, the artist would recieve the services related to that section.  Then, depending of the artist's ability, skills and attitude.  They would be giving a recording contract. (Octavia Records). And get taken into the studio; (Octavia Studio) to do a record.  And if the artist is a songwriter, they would be given a publishing contract; (Octavia Music Publishing) where their music would be publish and distributed in all available formats.  If the artist needs professional coaching.  They would be registered with (Octavia Artist) where they would be given training in any are they require training or to refresh their skills and build up their confidence.  Then, from then on, the artist would be featured in the magazine; (Octavia Music Magazine) and most of their activities would be featured in one section or multiple areas, either to sell them to the public or promote their events and products (CDs, DVDs, Records, Tours, Videos, Appearances, Merchandise and life stiyle.)  Also newsletters and blogs.  Then, everything associated with the artist is sold on the online music shop; (Octavia Music Shop) and working with distributers, high street shops and major stores.  Selling merchandise at gigs, events, tours etc.

In Conclusion

We understand this is a very tall order.  But we believe its something thats needed to be done.  For our future generation, for music, and for speading love and good vibes around the world.  But seriously, we've been looking into this for many years and believe it needs to be done.  For all those who goes to school, colleges and universities.  Spend thousand of hard earn money to learn, gain knowledge and skills.  Thereafter, spend an equal sum of money getting the equipment, transport and other services.  Then go about giving away their CDs (Products).  Playing events for free.  And struggling to maintain themself and worst still, when they fall in love and have a family.  Ask any other trade to give their services under these condition and you and I know the answer they would give.                                                                                                                      


 

The Story Behind this Thinking

Michael Alexander  (Managing Director MD)  Also Singer/Songwriter/Composer.

Nathan Alexander   (Director)  Also Singer/Songwriter/Performer

The Directors, (Michael Alexander and Nathan Alexander) is father and son, both singer/songwriters with a passion for music and performing.  Michael started writing songs at the age of fifteen and went through all the usual practice in getting his songs published, when he finally got the publishers interested in his writing, he became astonished by the sort of contract they wanted him to sign and resorted to writing and putting his songs in a cupboard for the time when he know enough about publishing to publish his own songs himself.  In the meantime he tried to be an actor, but could not get the work, because of the attitude towards people of colour at the time.  And so he went into modelling and were trained at the (London school of modeling) but again he could not get the work and ended up managing a band who were on the brink of success, but then started infighting.  Michael then joined the PRS-MCPS as a member where he has been very vocal for change.  Anin the are very proud of his participation as an activist that brought about the changes, that are more acceptable to its members. 

Nathan Alexander seem to have taken a rib from his father when it comes to music, after leaving school and deciding to make music his career he spent sometime in college and then went to university to learn amongst writing and playing instruments, Music technology and management.  And so it felt right to set up Octavia Multimedia Group Limited, with it several parts.  The idea originated by him,

The Directors felt is was the prefered vehicle towards achieving their aim in the music industry.  Having everything they need in house to further their careers in the music industry and entertainment management industry.  As well as the careers of other Artists assigned to the "Artist Management," section. The record label and the other subsidary companies.  Offering the complete package in supporting and promoting artist and Musicians.  Record label, music publishing, artist management, artist developement, recording studio, music shop and music magazine for promoting not only their careers  and creativity of artists assigned to the company, but to promote the  "Octavia©," Brand and Trademark, in merchandising, advertising, fashon and events.

Nostalgia

Anyone who lived through the 60s, 70s and 80s era, with the mixture there was of, soul music, rock music, pop music, funky music and disco music, and even country music and punk music.  Would have more of an idea of what it felt like to be filled with the feelings that music and the people who wrote, produced and performed these music.  They were much more a part of their wellbeing, culture, asperation and reasons for living than just entertainment.  And it seems that every generation since then, has taken inspiration from what went on back then.  The Artists, writers and musicians through their writing, singing, music and performances were somehow able to reach their SOUL, and gave meaning hope and inspiration to the lives they were living. From the rock musicals theatre productions to the open air festivals, even the flower power followers.  Those involved were able to take the listeners, viewers, and attendents to their concerts on a journey.  And for those of us who were lucky to have experienced it, still live it as if it were yesterday.  That journey does not end.  And "Octavia® ,"wants to add a chapter or footprints in the path of that journey.
