EARSTYLE.NET was conceptualized in 2007. The idea for the website came about by creator Ivan “Zay” Bradley @IMKBRAD during the peak of MySpace. Ivan always had ideas for music videos and other marketing ideas that he wanted to share with his favorite artists. He would send these ideas directly to artists, their publicists, their labels, and their managers. After successfully connecting with a few, one of the editors of a magazine at the time suggested that Ivan started a blog to share his passion for music. After self-teaching himself how to code, thanks to the days of sprucing up your MySpace profile, Ivan also began to teach himself basic Photoshop skills to bring this idea to life.
The name EARSTYLE.NET was created to blend music, style, pop culture, and everything in between. The site’s original tagline was “Breaking New First” and there was one rule: NO GOSSIP. EARSTYLE.NET was created to celebrate GOOD art. The tagline eventually morphed into “C’est Bon.” which is French for “It’s Good”.
EARSTYLE.NET is back and better than ever. With a mixture of rising and established talents; the website provides a GOOD mix of everything GOOD for everybody out there. Our mission is to promote the idea that GOOD is GOOD, no matter the race of the artist, the genre, the sex of the performer, or any difference that would normally not be socially accepted. If it’s GOOD we want to embrace it, love it, listen to it, support it, and live it.
If it’s GOOD to you…It’s GOOD. C’est Bon.
