Ciscandra Nostalghia enjoys her artistic freedom and individuality––but it never hurts to have a strong team of dependable and innovative associates to enhance such creative prowess.

The artist and her “post-apocalyptic gypsy punk” bandmates currently remain unsigned by a label, and that is completely by choice. In fact, just last year the band was approached by several well-known record labels (including Columbia and Atlantic).

“Going the ‘major label’ route at the time wasn’t really for us,” Nostalghia explains. “We wanted to build our brand a little bit more. Who knows what might happen one day, but at the time it was just more feasible to do it independently.”

“Going the ‘major label’ route at the

time wasn’t really for us.”

So for now, Nostalghia is working close with 110 Management, the William Morris Endeavor booking agency, BMG Rights Management and the digital media distribution/technology company, INgrooves.

“We have a really wonderful team of people who are extremely passionate,” she says. “That is what I always wanted, people who understood and believed in our vision, and who could really bring it into a new light.”

And consequently, the pieces are smoothly falling into place. Nostalghia’s debut record Chrysalis came out April 8, and the band already have a huge fan following thanks to social media (check out their website for some insanely aesthetic music videos). Next on the list: headlining a tour in support of the new album.

Nostalghia hopes that such positive experiences within the industry will propel future success and, more importantly, inspire continued peace of mind. Some words of wisdom:

“Once you start seeing obstacles, you don’t see solutions,” Nostalghia observes. “I’m the kind of person who looks at something jarring and confusing and I’ll find a way to get through it. If it’s getting more complicated, then you’re not doing it right.” – Danica Bellini
