How do you stay connected to your fanbase as a musician when you cannot tour? How do you generate an income when your music sales stop? Most musicians and bands depend mostly on sales generated as a direct result of contact with their audience during their shows. Small venues are all but going out of business; and there is a big question mark on what will happen to large venues. Now what?
Depending of your fanbase, you can start generating sales from a studio streaming concerts or single or album release record party from a music studio or your home. K-Pop band BTS generated millions recently streaming paid concerts. Such "Army," Fanbase is more the exception than the rule. Talent agencies such as Big Hit Entertainment, SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment, regrouped and now use online free and paid concerts to stay in business.
So what less known artists can do to continue to provide a valuable experience to their fans?
"Online performances cannot completely replace live performances. However, it showed the potential for contactless concerts. We need to think about how we can both develop both online and live concerts." Lee Dong-yeon, a professor at the Korea National University of Arts
At first Leo, asked Djamee, what would be the investment. Djamee, told him there is none. "All I need is your design and I will deliver a turnkey store to you with products ready for your fans.
You will never have to ship anything nor handle returns if any. The customer service is taken care of, and most of all your fans can continue to own a product that you've created."
Fans streaming his music or watching a music video can access the merchandise and vice versa; as an artist Leo, can gain new music fans just because his merchandise is promoted as a stand alone apparel to non music fans as well.
HIs best seller with us is the pullover black hoodie. Djamee, believes that once people realize that you can even own a clock with that minimal original design; the interest and sales will continue coming in while his fan base broadens.
This is what a big dream delivers to anyone who dares to walk in them. Leo, had always been a Depeche Mode fan. Not only he met the lead singer and exchanged with him in Soho a few years back. Soon after he was tapped as the lead singer of a show recreating the "Depeche Mode." experience live.
Building relationships who last a lifetime is underrated; but don’t neglect that important aspect on your way to whatever you want in this life. Leo Luganskiy is a Frontman and Producer of NYC, based Alternative metal outfit- #FOiRMODA, as well as is a vocalist of #STRANGELOVE [The Dépêche Mode Experience] tribute band, which has been traveling the world performing in front of large audiences every week until the pandemic of 2020.

After a long hiatus I have decided to re-open the gate and let the flood of creativity FLOW. Studs and Spikes are a reflect of my state of mind. I always look at my creations or accessories I transform as a symbol of my inner transformation. I had to work out things in my life and I did it for the best. I believe that anyone with an open mind can wear a StuddedSpikes by me.
I know that since the time I launched in Fall 2009 a lot of mainstream artists such as Rihanna; Madonna; Lady Gaga... have been increasingly wearing studs and spikes giving an edge to their outfits or sometimes making it their centerpiece.
My goal is to start working more often with artists and collaborate in helping them manifesting their vision. I will open new locations in NYC and in the rest of the country this year. The main store will remain the site. You can contact me with any ideas ; I am happy to help. Stylists I do have cool pieces for you.
You will be able to enjoy all my limited edition StuddedSpikes for yourself or as a gift.

I have done a lot of running around this week mainly in the Fashion District and at some publication companies where I had some business to conduct. I was humbled last night when a women at the front desk at the Hearst, building told me: "You are a pleasant person;" she even took a bystander as her witness "Isn't he?" and that girl who had witnessed our friendly exchange added: "Yes he is and this is really rare in this industry." I could only say: "Thank you!" But in my mind I knew I was mostly grateful for the positive people who have surrounded me these last couple of months. I guess their kindness rubbed off on me.
