My name is Jay, and I am from San Francisco but was also raised in Oakland. My enterprise Smoked Out will sell local artist merch and also provide interviews and vlogs. What inspired me to create Smoked Out is when I went to my first festival and it was a life changing event. I bought merch, and i felt like part of a Community. Independent artists struggle to make money from their art. Our goal is to help artists become economically sustainable. People can support Smoked Out by inviting us to different music concerts to record the experience.We would also love to get connected with artists, managers, and beatmakers.
