How We Vet Our Freelancers

Hiring in music is not easy. We have experience working on every side of our industry - label, management, freelancer - and have experienced the struggles of poor work quality, lack of accountability, delayed timelines & payment, inconsistent communication, and worst of all, ghosting. With B.A.K, you can find ease knowing that we've done the hard work for you.

We vet and approve our freelancers via a 1-on-1 interview process based on:

  • Proven work results that are recent and consistent with high-quality industry standards
  • Independent work experience with music artists and their teams
  • Work process and familiarity with industry operational standards and procedures
