What We Do

In today's music business, it can be difficult to understand the full scope of the industry and its complex, modern components. The internet and digital distribution has leveled the playing field, creating an equal opportunity for artists to present their music to the public. There is more competition than ever, and in order to gain recognition, artists must distinguish themselves from the masses. In order to achieve make one's mark, it is imperative to adopt an effective strategy - a detailed roadmap for career development. Trickfinger Records provides artists with a comprehensive range of services under one roof - from recording and mixing to marketing and public relations - to ensure success at every stage of the journey.

Music Marketing & PR

Music Marketing & PR is not just about Pitchfork, Fader, and Rolling Stone. It is a complex ecosystem of journalists, editors, blogs, promoters, booking agents, managers, and more. With over 15 years experience, we have fine-tuned the art of networking with these different types of professionals on behalf of our artists. We will meticulously tailor a personalized strategy for promotion -including a detailed social media plan - to maximize public awareness, increase your media exposure and broaden your fan base.

Our highly experienced engineers and producers are committed to enhancing each artist’s creativity with one of our many state-of-the-art recording studio partners right here in Austin. Rather record in the comfort of your own space? We also have mobile recording capabilities and will bring our cutting edge equipment to the location of your choosing.

Succeeding in this business is A LOT of work. With the pressures of social media posting, website updating, digital distribution, booking gigs, and crafting newsletters, how are you expected to focus on actually CREATING music? We can provide you with a comprehensive artist development plan that manages all of these elements and sets you up for success. Your personalized plan will include: website building, professional photos, touring, booking, newsletter growth, sponsorships, sync licensing, distribution, and more.

The Story of Trickfinger

Trickfinger Records is an independent record label and artist development company based out of Austin, TX. After many trips to Austin over the years the label’s founder, Music Publicist, Storme Levi, realized that Austin musicians lacked the support and resources needed to take their music careers to greater heights. Although the Live Music Capital of the World has some fantastic local studios and organizations in place that provide recording, career guidance and even funding for the city’s local talent, she saw a need for a comprehensive, local record label where musicians could not only record, mix, and master their tracks, but also work with experienced industry professionals on the marketing, media relations and distribution of their music. Trickfinger Records welcomes artists from all genres, particularly those that place their own unique fingerprint on their respective musical styles. The label’s focus is to provide the resources of a major record label while allowing their artists to retain their creative ownership and artistic independence.
