With several artist development companies, studio production facilities and vocal and instrumental companies in the Detroit and surrounding areas, Marita saw that artist are getting information and training to grow their craft physically but not the skills to get their “foot in the door” with record labels, production companies, gain sponsors, build support and become either a signed artist or a successful independent artist.
