So Phenomenal Entertainment, LLC is a independent record label, reigning out of The Bronx, NY. Founded in August of 2011, CEO Jason Pagan had a vision of renewing creativity in the music industry. He sensed that the industry had been infiltrated with mainstream artists, who mostly developed music for radio play. Jason coupled this passion; along with the various opportunities that emerging technology has allotted to create a resource for artists to have a voice. Unlike major record labels, he wanted to host an environment where artists weren’t indebted to the label and forced to comply with unnecessary rules. Jason believed that freedom exposed the greater realms of creativity. Thus, ready to take the stand, So Phenomenal Entertainment, LLC was established.
As of June 2012, So Phenomenal proudly boasts releases by its first two artists. The artists, CEO Jason “Phenom” Pagan, and Orlando “Oz” Ortiz, have received high accolades on their works. Both were reviewed in mainstream magazines, each reaching various audiences. Through these artists, So Phenomenal has been able to maintain a social media presence on YouTube and Facebook, with a release of an official website soon expected.
So Phenomenal has also been able to collaborate with other artists outside of the music industry. iCEEphotography has integrated with the label for photography services. iCEEphotography was founded by Crystal Santiago in 2011 as well. Crystal is a freelance photographer, who has teamed with So Phenomenal. She has been featured in Alwayz Therro Magazine and Parlé Magazine from her collaborations with Phenom.
So Phenomenal has boasted artists all under the age of 21. Even CEO Jason “Phenom” Pagan began the label at 19 years old, and has used his youth to reach a global audience. They have reached international audiences; Oz was featured in a digital magazine in the UK. While, Phenom has worked with producers from Germany, Europe and Asia.
So Phenomenal Entertainment’s mission as a independent record label is to continue to relate, encourage, and cultivate generations in music; including but not limited to writing, producing, managing and distributing, photography, managing and developing artists, and providing exposure though Social Media, digital magazines, iTunes, etc. So Phenomenal provides access to the music industry for artists, listeners, entrepreneurs and specialists who are dissatisfied with the current music industry, the quality of music, and treatment of artists. Unlike typical record companies, we believe in growing and developing our artists and business partners to provide an overall creative and open atmosphere that will allow us to grow with our audience and vice versa. As a result, we will provide exposure for our company and affiliates into the desired market(s) inside the music industry.
