THE BACKSTORY

In 2016, the Brain Candy revolution began as its founder, A. Kress grew distressed from enduring and witnessing sheer disrespect for artists, creatives, and the underdogs of the entertainment industry. Being told time and time again by patriarchal grad-school professors and this is simply "how it was done" lit an eternal flame for Kress to change that mindset and restore creative control and freedom to all in the industry. With an objective at hand, Kress teamed up with Tony Chiarella to co-found Brain Candy, who serve as its original client, Tichi. As the Keeper of the Realm, Tony has provided an essential artist perspective, while Creative Overlord Kress has contributed that of industry professionals. The duo serves to ensure that artist credit is always given through equitable contracts, fair pricing, and cuts to all. Now, Brain Candy continues to represent emerging artists, assist in building strong foundations and support entertainment-based startups with similar goals of revolutionizing the outdated practices of the entertainment industry.
