Savage People was founded in November 2014 by Jon Orc, Bona Pak and Humberto Escobar, three members of the band Hemorage who wanted to give the underground artists the same level of attention and coverage that our culture gives to mainstream bands and record labels. We also wanted to make a very diverse music scene since we feel like the scene is very segregated by race and genre.
Through our collective, we promote underground artists to as many people as possible. We host events that allows artists and musicians have their voices heard.
We’ve recruited three more people to our collective (Josh Lykkerberg, Veronica Baron and Steve Jong) to help us grow and make a bigger impact in the Bay Area.
