This is Basement Bars

We aim to change the meaning of a record label, from just a brand or name on your music, to a team that believes in your music and is dedicated to supporting your message. 


Basement Bars is the name that collectively describes Basement Bars Entertainment (media/entertainment company), Basement Bars Records (record label, management group) and Basement Bars Music Group (artists that represent our brand through their brand and their music). Our founder, Jacob Hoffman, noticed how hard it was to make it as an artist. Even if you did, labels would not treat you the way that they should. Basement Bars is here to change that.


The Basement Bars team wants to make music while managing artists that we truly believe in. While doing whatever we can to improve an artist's career, Basement Bars will be using social media as a platform to speak about unbiased opinions on the music industry. Also, we'll be covering news and important topics about the music industry, its culture, and its artists.

Mission Statement: Basement Bars strives to help artists who started from nothing, and work with them until they are more than something; while covering un-biased and factual news about music and its culture.  


Vision Statement: As we grow our empire, Basement Bars will become the leading brand and label within the music industry that treats artists how they should be treated, changing the way the industry works while sharing content in music, television, movies, gaming and all of its culture with everyone throughout the world.
