About MBEC Founder Arlinda Garrett:
MBEC Founder, Arlinda Garrett, known as the “Queen of Promotions” states, “As I saw the shift in the industry, I also saw a need to educate independent record labels and their artists to provide professional direction, get their records played on the radio and provide a medium to track sales. One of my priorities is assisting with minimizing their costs because often times the independent artist does not have the budget of a major label artist, yet they have a product that is comparable, if not better. The MBEC was created with that in mind and to equip them with the necessary tools for success in an ever-changing industry.”
