Empya Pro Sound is a modern, Fresh and Exciting Music Brand. Born with a strong vision and passion for creativity. A wide range of quality, professional and tailored music technology services with a difference.
Where are you based and why is it a good location for your business?
Bradford which is my hometown. There are a lot of creative places within the West Yorkshire district such as local radio stations, media companies and media hubs within Bradford and Leeds which are good business target areas and custom.
How did you come up with the idea?
The story behind this has come from the past ten years of my life. I have done nothing but live and breathe my passion and love for making music. Growing up I have been musical all my life and was bought many instruments such as guitars and a keyboard at the age of just two. It was at about fourteen when my talent for music really began to blossom, where I took an interest in Songwriting and music production. I was in recording studios before I had even left school! I guess I’m at a point in my life right now where I just want to channel all that energy and experience I have!
What stage was your business at when you applied for the start-up loan?
I was at the Pre-Startup stage when i applied for the Virgin Start Up Loan.
How have you used it to grow your business?
By building my website and being able to buy Music Equipment.
Who is your mentor and how did they help you?
Richard, he has helped me with marketing techniques in the early stages of My business and to get it off the ground.
Who is your regional delivery partner and how did they help you get a Virgin StartUp loan?
David Gagen from Airedale Enterprise Services assisted me to develop my business plan and provided me advice and support throughout the application process.
Biggest Achievement so far?
Record deal by far. Also being blessed enough to do something I love and enjoy every single day since a very young age and now to turn that passion into a business
What’s next for your business?
I have a very strong vision for the company as being an entire brand one day in the future. I would love to expand into other avenues such as a recording studio, record label, clothing line and maybe even a product range, if I’m lucky enough!
