A unique way to express feelings. A smart way to start a movement. A powerful way to make oneself heard. A form of art.
Music is one of the most powerful forms of expression. Since the very beginning, this art form is used to motivate soldiers and even help people start a movement. Many people dream about paying their part in the music industry, but things do not work in their favor, because becoming a well-known music artist is not simple, and it requires a tough skin. One of the biggest reasons why many aspiring music artists give up midway and fail to succeed in the industry is the lack of opportunities. Most of the record labels and agencies are looking for already successful artists and are skeptical about giving young artists a chance through their label. Even if a young artist lands on an opportunity, music labels try to mold an artist into something they are not. It damages an artist’s originality, which prevents them from making a mark on the listeners.
Mohammad Yasar Nasir, professionally known as Yazz Nasir, realized there was a need for a platform that could help the aspiring and struggling music artists get a chance to succeed in the industry. As he is a ghost songwriter himself, he understands the challenges young artists have to go through. He founded “Ghost Recordz” in the United Kingdom to represent young artists and help them establish an influential entity in the world of music and entertainment.
