The Indelible Niche Collective

1520823_580517795375544_719129669_n

 

The Indelible Niche Collective is a collaborative home for like minded artists that focuses on creating and highlighting what we believe to be creative and enduring art. We do not limit ourselves to any certain musical genre or artistic style. Simply put, the INC strives to provide a place where artists may grow alongside those who seek the same creative stimulation. In essence we are a do-it-yourself label that wants to provide a more professional type of service for artists; but more importantly, we want to be recognized as a collective of respectable up and coming (as well as pre-established) talents in our own artistic pursuits. We welcome any artist or fan who identifies with this goal, as well as any questions concerning what it is we do.

WAKE_MAGAZINE_logo-1024x354

 

Wake Magazine’s mission is to support and highlight South Carolina’s unique music scene while reaching out to independent musicians across the country. The ever-changing nature of the music business and involvement of social media has made independent success simultaneously more accessible and much more difficult. We believe it’s crucial to maintain a strong support network for the independent musician while remaining fiercely independent ourselves.

Artisan Tees logo

Andy Natusch, owner and creator of the fashion forward and eco-conscious clothing company Artisan Tees, is truly a creative soul. Mr. Natusch began early in life as a musician and music has continued to be a passion in his life (insert shameless plug for music website- www.solesymphony.com). In his mid-twenties, Andy became a successful self taught painter and to this day he has sold over 250 paintings. When the economy took a turn for the worse and the general public did not have enough disposable income to purchase paintings, Mr. Natusch began exploring new ways to express himself creatively and make art that is more affordable for the average consumer. Finally it came to him after washing a t-shirt that shrunk so bad it became a half shirt, that he would create wearable art of high quality in the most environmentally friendly ways that anyone could afford to buy. Mr. Natusch then bought his first silk screen printing press, taught himself how to use it, and began using his artistic sensibilities to design t-shirts. Before he knew it, he had found a store front/studio space in Charleston, SC, and became a regular on the farmers market circuit. Artisan Tees now has expanded to not only include t-shirts, but also dresses, tank tops, children’s clothing, bags, leggings, skirts, and bathing suits. Andy has sold thousands of shirts via the internet, and currently has his clothing line in stores throughout the country, and will continue spreading Artisan Tees and his concept of wearable art to more stores.
