I’ve taken the time to type up the whole list for you in case the poster is a little hard to see on the website.

“I have worked with Andy and BVB since he was a teenager, first discovering him as a booking agent in the early days of Sumerian. To see everything he’s accomplished as a musician, actor and writer in the past decade is truly inspiring. To finally be able to partner with Andy and BVB as their record label while working alongside Blasko and Brxnd management for the next era of the band I believe will lead to the most compelling days yet and Andy is only in his 20s… exciting times ahead!” – Ash Avildsen
