Some exciting company updates for BYOD would include Kaleb’s album dropping. In addition to an amazing response from his project, his short film was also selected for a film festival, moving him towards dropping his deluxe album, giving him a full album cycle which is super important to us.
In addition to that, we just planned and executed a music festival in ATL in less than 3 months. It was such a success and everyone truly enjoyed themselves!
Lastly, were dropping a Lofi project and t-shirts to sell as well to directly benefit out BYOD fund and send creatives to therapy! Lofi music directly benefited our President and made her feel less anxious. That’s our goal for everyone else.
