The Creatives Factory, originally known as C-Factory Productions, started out primarily as a Music Production House with a goal of catering to "all genres and all styles." We grew up listening to and being interested in everything from Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Latin, Electronic, Experimental, Jazz, Classical and so much more and we brought together that love of different genres to begin producing artists. From the beginning, our emphasis was always first and foremost to take time with an artist to help them find THEIR unique sound, as opposed to telling them what their sound is before they've even had a chance to explore it. We felt that by doing this, we could give every artist the joy of being able to say, "That sounds exactly like what I wanted to make." Since then, we've had the joy of working with countless artists across different genres who have had success with songs reaching millions of streams across platforms, official Spotify Editorial playlists around the world, as well as producing music that has found its way onto movies and television.
It's no secret that the music industry has changed drastically in the past 20 years. More and more of the responsibilities that once fell on the record label, are now in the hands of the independent artist. Where once the artist was only responsible for writing the song and then the label would do the rest, now most artists have to take care of everything from content creation, photoshoots, music videos, branding, marketing campaigns, publishing, and so much more. Unfortunately, we saw a lot of artists see this change as an insurmountable mountain. For years we saw great artists finish great songs, only to ask themselves the same question; "what do I do now?" The COVID-19 Pandemic really brought this new world to light, as it forced artists to realize just how important the responsibility for them to be content creators really is and many artists found themselves unprepared to face this change because they either didn't fully understand it or didn't have the tools or resources available to them.
At The Creatives Factory, we've built a space to equip artists with the tools they need to not only create great music, but also to quickly and efficiently create content that will help get that music noticed. We also help the artist connect the dots in their journey through the music industry by helping them understand everything from music publishing to music business and marketing. We've done this by adding to our multiple music production rooms a 2,000 square foot creative space, complete with professional lighting, movable walls for set creation, multi-colored photo backdrops, live performance multi-tracking capabilities with studio quality sound, large scale projectors, as well as providing label services such as a music publishing arm, educational and artist development resources. What we've built here is a creative playground for artists to bring their musical and visual ideas to life. Most artists think those things are unaffordable or unattainable, but we want you to know that here at The Creatives Factory, they're just a few steps away.

Christian was also part of the team that launched the first show of the largest global music kids brand, KIDZ BOP, as their live show music producer. He worked closely with the NYC based brand and their producers, the assigned choreographers to design the show, as well as recording the KB Kids in the studio for their live performances. Christian continues to do periodic vocal coaching with the KIDZ BOP brand on their ever expanding tours to date. KIDZ BOP is noted for having sold over 20 million albums and generated over 3 billion streams since the family-friendly music brand debuted in 2001.
