Bad Cop Bad Cop

"We build Artists with guts, personality, issues and resilience. Earn skills worth a lifetime."

“The Voice” can shove it.

MISSION

Anyone can claim to 'make a record'. Great. Now what, you have a pile of CDs with your name on them. So does THAT other guy...

As Artisans, it's heart-breaking to let our own and Talent's hard work disappear in a dead-end alley. Not everyone is likely to succeed at an Industry career. That's Okay!!! There is so much more to it. Recording can be a wonderful self-awakening journey, of introspective blossoming, of demanding ethics, and a garanteed improvement of musical, dextrous, and social skills. We offer EDUCATION by other means. Careers take decades to build, we offer all the short-cuts that combined years of experience can offer, and save you thousands of dollars on the long-run... and the knowledge that you, a friend or loved one did it RIGHT.

What does "Bad Cop Bad Cop" mean?

A binomial team, beyond roles. Although always respectful, we are brutally honest and won't stand for any teenage excuse... If one of us gets on your case, there's a good reason. We often debate, but when we do agree: you're in trouble. Now let's get to work.

METHOD

Assess strengths and weaknesses in respect to project's ambition, then devise a customized gameplan. From short-term to long-term. Perhaps Talent isn't yet ready to get into the studio, and need to improve their basics (and we're here for that). Or perhaps it's time to make a few phone calls, and get cranking. We strive to deliver a positive experience; won't feed you grandeur and illusions. Being realistic and honest is the best ticket to real progress, while appreciating the journey and its rewards.

  • Critical thinking, improved discernment
  • Ear training
  • Leadership skills
  • Project management
  • Writing and composing crash-course
  • Industry short-cuts
  • Career guidance
  • Competitive product (if non-demo)

Psychology

If it wasn't for positive and constructive outlets, where would so many of us be? We understand creative minds can find it difficult to 'fit in'. We've been there. Making a demo; album; show; or whatever, is more about the process. You can always showcase a song, yet what is learned and acquired in the process outlasts anything.
