Introducing a hub for artists using the web to reach audiences directly, independent of Big Music & Big Tech:

Savvy Indie

Led by me, web designer & performing artist Laurence Warner, aka Cerulean.


📣 !Indepdendent Artists!

Our community will help you own:
🎨 your creative process with modern code-less tools, like AirTable or Notion.
🔦 your web presence by owning a website.


What's on offer?

🔑 Exclusive resources
Get my exclusive weekly SavvyIndie roundup (audio & text), plus access to our private databases, on the best ways to reach an audience online
e.g. our definitive Distro comparison tool (see public sample) can help your music succeed on Spotify.

👯 Productive connections
The best collabs happen between equals. Get more x on your tracks by meeting like-minded creatives who share similar values, as you help answer each other's questions in our slick Discourse forum, coming in Autumn 2021.
I'll showcase our most active community members by inviting them on our public Spotify GreenRoom podcast.

👂 My ear
I want the world's highest-performing independent artists to be in this community, and I'll offer my personal advice & input - on you work, your tech stack & everything in between - to help you get there.
I offer half-hour calls with all members ever X days, where X is the number of members. I'm capping the community at 365 indies so you'll be guaranteed a call with me each year, though in the early days that will be more like every month, so join now to get the most bespoke consulting out of it!


Wow that's a lot on offer! Can I contribute back to the community?

Yes please! Like all communities, members are expected to make a contribution, both in terms of:

a) being an active member of the forum, supporting others where you can help them, and offering some insight into behind-the-scenes of your public output

b) paying subs to support the tech & admin costs, as well as Cerulean's time (which in the early days you're entitled to a lot of):
subs are minimum "a fiver"* per month
(GBP: £5 | EUR/USD: €6/$6)
though I'll encourage you to donate "a tenner" if you are able!
N.B. if you recruit another paying member you are eligible to skip that month's subs 🙌


Interested in joining?
I'm offering a free sample half-hour consultation, so you get a first-hand sample of that offering, as well as an opportunity for me to give you a peek of what else is on offer.
At the end if we both feel it's a good fit, you will have the opportunity to pay your first month's subs to enroll in the community, or walk away to continue plugging away alone!


Only interested once Forum launches?
Once we reach 10 members and launch the Discourse Forum, I'll notify you:

🔼 As long as we are below 10 members, it means that you can get on at least 3 x 30min calls a month for just a fiver! That's the sort of timeframe I can help you design the pengest artist website, or put together your first release!
I'd suggest joining up now and I'll help accelerate your career the most!


Wanna stay indie? Gotta get savvy!
