6th&MUSIC was founded on the idea that the musicians and visual content creators are the ones who have the greatest potential for positive impact. A creative development lab was born out of the desire to help support and guide young musicians and creators to reach their maximum potential, working together to bring meaningful music and memorable experiences to life.
