To Everyone at Blue Pie:
The best part about working at Blue Pie was the people I got to work with during my time in Sydney. They made it a pleasure to come to work each day. Despite being one of just two legal interns at Blue Pie, there was a family atmosphere amongst all the interns, and it made even the difficult days a little bit easier. Oh, and free beer on Friday afternoons didn't hurt either.

To Blue Pie Staff & Team:
Interning at Blue Pie as a designer has been a great experience. The whole team was incredibly nice who would go out of their ways to make sure you felt welcome and was never too busy to answer any questions that you may have. I felt part of the Blue Pie family from day one. The tasks I was given varied from day to day and exposed me to areas of the music industry you would otherwise never have a glimpse of! It was a quick three months that I would recommend to anyone!

To the Blue Pie Management and Staff:
My internship at Blue Pie was a great and very rewarding experience. Coming from a completely different background (in Nursing) and looking at a career change, it felt a little daunting to start with but Blue Pie instantly made me feel welcome and like I was a part of the team. The friendly environment made me feel comfortable to both ask for help and to help others as everyone worked in a team dynamic. I learnt an abundance of new things while working here. From insight into the music industry and how a label works to new skills which led me to confirm that this is definitely the kind of field I’d like to be working in and the type of people that I’d love to be working with. The intern mentor gave me a lot of control in the tasks that were assigned to me which were always challenging and interesting. I always got feedback for my efforts and felt good about what i had learnt and achieved.
I am grateful to Blue Pie for this awesome opportunity and extend my appreciation to the whole team!

"My experience with Blue Pie over the past few months of working with them has been absolutely wonderful! They are such good people who really know this business and put 100% of their time and talents into everything they do. I am tremendously impressed with the results so far, and I feel confident that my music and I are in good hands!"
I have learned so much from Damien since being part of his team at 'Blue Pie Records'. His guidance has helped improve my guitar skills, which meant learning to play scales blindfolded. When I started playing gigs five days a week , his words really changed my performance: " Look forward to each day as you may NEVER EVER EVER see that person in the crowd again. THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MOMENT .......you connect for a few moments and then nothing for ever". Cathy’s advice and encouragement has been really incredible in helping me believe in myself and my songs. Thank you both!
Blue Pie has been an asset in the growth of my company, AIN MUSIC & DISTRIBUTION by handling all the administration and sales reports for our artist roster. Blue Pie allows provides our team with greater opportunity and real growth to develop our our business with no real stress or worries. I would recommend any label, major or indie to consult with Blue Pie on how to take a step in the right direction for success!

“As an independent artist releasing my projects via my own label over the past seven years it was a major and long thought out decision to sign on with Blue Pie Records this past summer. The primary reason I did sign on was their honest belief in my songs and me as an artist as well as their very forward knowledge of the current state of the music business world-wide. I feel strongly that my partnership with Blue Pie greatly benefit my career. Blue Pie really has been brilliant with the process of transferring my full catalog and content into their systems seamlessly as well as the complete re-branding of me on the web. These guys have been hands on and very aggressive in a short period of time. I believe that any artist whom Blue Pie shows interest in should heavily consider signing on.“

I just wanted to let you know about our experience with Blue Pie Records. We regularly have business development meetings with Artists in need of a high profile major label look web/social sites. Branding is thoroughly brainstormed often with an extremely quick completion. Within days of bringing a left of center act to the table, Damien had assembled his team of business experts who have had major business achievements in finance and corporate dealings. This is a key part of this business.
In short Earth And The Next Society with a new classic rock sound are on the way to being a highly visible act throughout the US and eventually going international. I brought the act to the table but what an amazing plan to team the band with lifestyle marketing.
Blue Pie is set up like the majors, with multiple departments and 22 employees. Most are real music people with business acumen as opposed to the old way of hiring business grads to man the fort.
We have had a major turn around in our business. Our label is pretty much a turnkey operation, allowing us to focus on signing Artists, assisting in promotions and booking them. This new model of doing business is immediately successful and a welcome relief from getting approval from gatekeepers who often are disinterested in amazing music.
I encourage you to get on board with Damien and the crew to revolutionize your growth.
