    Lighting In A Bottle records is a marketing tool created by Timmer Blakely in 2021 to produce, distribute, market, and mentor blues artists who possess a specific degree of talent, skill, ambition, passion, and character. We are focused on creating and recording original blues and related music and bringing these artists to a larger audience. As an organization, we are committed to creating an atmosphere of positivity, cooperation, support, and guidance for all of our artists to thrive in. 

     

    We believe that the future of blues will ultimately be found in the next generation of young blues musicians. That is why we have a strong focus on younger blues artists with the goal of shaving decades off of their learning curve through guidance and mentoring, and opening up opportunities for their growth and advancement beyond what they would normally have access to. Our “Artist In Development” program aligns up coming musicians who aren’t ready to release an album but still demonstrate the properties we seek, with our artists to advance and develop their abilities, and provide professional growth opportunities.

     

    LIAB records also helps to facilitate fund raising for these artists, when needed. All of our artists own full rights to all of their music. LIAB Records takes no percentage of money from records and merch sold online or elsewhere. Our agreements with our artists are non exclusive and we actively distribute their music to all platforms and relevant agencies, in addition to proactively seeking play list placement, radio air play, and commercial placement/applications. We work hard to find events and opportunities for our artists to maximize their exposure, and release their recordings to the largest audience possible. And we believe that collectively, we can make a stronger impact than individually.

    Thanks for joining the team!
