The Bay Bridged Features Starita and BAMC


The Bay Bridged has become recognized nationwide as the leading source for San Francisco Bay Area independent music through their award-winning music blog and podcast series, as well as a series of acclaimed music festival events. Be sure to check out their interview with BAMC Founder, Starita.

The BAMC is all about connecting musicians to Bay Area producers, studios, labels, filmmakers, publicists, and anyone else who can help them make music and get it out into the world. Starita, who is a musician himself, Governor for The Grammys and an audio engineer/producer with a resume that lists Rick Rubin as a former client, plans to restore the Bay Area’s status as a premier hub of the music industry by both bringing out-of-towners in to work with local talent and by helping homegrown musicians get their work out to the masses.
