STRICTLY Magazine is an online publication platform and digital quarterly magazine that focuses STRICTLY on the Artist and their art. We have four "umbrella" categories:
Our quarterly digital magazine publication aims to act as a cost-effective projector for the artist to help them expand the viewership of their works.
Our website's goal is to highlight all art forms and directly supports creators by showcasing and linking to their works on our platform.
We want to give artists control of their own narrative in the public eye. We strive to make sure your story is told your way!
We take an intimate approach toward learning an Artist's story to ensure that the words in your feature are always true to your first-hand experience.
I listen to a lot of artist interviews - I think it's a great way to get the inside scoop on what exactly went on during their creative process. My favorite artist of all time is Lana Del Rey, so I regularly "study" her interviews, if you will. I started seeing a pattern with her and others:
Interviews were being used as a lure to get artist in the room simply to talk about other topics they were not prepared for. It really struck me when Lana spoke out about catching on to this trend saying, "I'd love to get to the point one day where we just talk about the music. But until that day... *shrugs* ... I want you to know my story. I don't want you to know what people write about and take. I don't want you to know that those five words that people took out of a four minute interview - forty minute interview is what the take away is."
I created this magazine, website, space, for her and artists like her. The fans want to know you and what you have to say, not what an interviewer has to say about you.
STRICTLY Magazine is a space for artists to say what they want about their art, and have it said how they want. We are a community that supports the authenticity of artists as people who are on a mission to genuinely connect.
