No-Nonsense Tiers

While music industry, as we used to know it, fades a bit more every day, new pr services and new ways arise literally every day. Never has it been easier to thrive in the new music industry and expose yourself, but not all services out there work for any artists. We used to burn our own budget on services that did not pay off. That made us understand what works and what doesn’t. We are excited to share our knowledge now by offering flexible, no-nonsense tiers that will save you money yet help you set the sails.

    

 

 

Slower Faster can develop your strategy and navigate your project in full through the complex and time-consuming process of releasing and promoting music, or we can help you on a short term basis and just show you the most efficient route.

Our Consultation Services

Crowdfunding

Fundraising is crucial for maximizing budget. It’s time-consuming work but launching your own camapign should be no. 1 priority on your way to releasing an album. We’re here to guide you throughout the pros and cons.

Together we will develop your personal strategy and guide you throughout the campaign to secure you’ll reach your goal.

“There’s always a certain risk of one-shots not working out, but the Deltahorse aren’t looking for easy answers, just the questions that burn.
