A little about the KRucial Agency:

We all need a team to move forward, and a head on our efforts to coordinate what we’ve got to get where we

want.  The KRucial Agency can help.  With 17 years in the music industry, our extensive

network of contacts are continuously engaged by phone or online (through our web site, personal emails and

content-rich newsletters).  Few artists can (or want to) devote their time to the non-musical needs of their

career.  We’re ready to work with you on converting the best of what you’ve got into more.  Give us a call or

drop us a line at and let’s discuss where to get started.

banners, we’ve worked with the likes of popular band ‘311’ and audio aficionados ‘Bose’ – so we know the

industry’s needs and interests. Visit our web site and give us a call, let us show you the ArtShirtCo


A little about the Many Moods of Music:

Many Moods of Music offers complete music production and audio services.  While working with Producer,

Musician and Engineer Trevor Sugar, there are great vibes in the studio just north of Ft. Lauderdale.

Composing, arranging, recording, remixing a finished piece, or scoring a film is where you’ll find the crew.

Many Moods of Music has helped developed several roots and dancehall artists, including Alkebulan,

receiving heavy airplay on JA and UK radio. Clients, including the AirPlay Direct contest winner, need only

place a studio mix of the winning song in the hands of MMM for the remix treatment to begin.
