Our Story

18+ Years in Business (Est. 2001)

We started on the road, running merchandise, technology, and fan engagement for incredible musicians, management groups and record labels. In the upturned faces of crowds across the globe, we saw deep emotional connection, and recognized this as the driver of great brands.

Developing an Agency

Six years in, we settled down to build our lives in Santa Barbara. We continued to support our artists’ growth by creating new, disruptive tools and technologies within the fast-growing social network space. We also applied our learning to serve hundreds of brands that sell products, build places or create content.

Making Intelligence Work

Since day one, our innovation focused on connecting with audiences, using research to back strategy. Today, we are pushing the boundaries of that market research with Actionable Intelligence™. Our big-data booster shot not only helps brands maximize their emotional connection with audiences, it ensures smarter, more profitable decision-making.
