State of the unEARTH Address – March 2014

Hello unEARTHicans,

My name is Ben Kashuk and I am a co-founder of the Orange County-based media group, unEARTH Music Hub along with Josh Davis and Michael Klein. This “State of the unEARTH Music Hub Address” is coming to you due to our drive to be transparent in all things we do. We have been a company for over a year now (a year and 4 months to be exact) and we strongly believe in the notion of full disclosure. More specifically, making you, the followers/supporters, aware of what we have been up to, where we came from, and telling a few success stories. Our goal is to keep you updated with not only the local music scene, but with what we are doing to continue to provide the freshest, most consistent, and reliable information on local music. Here at the unEARTH Music Hub, we feel there is something to be said about your source for information, and herein lies our need for transparency, so that you may not only enjoy the content we put out, but trust it as well.
