Who we are?
Seven West Productions, LLC is a publishing company that is dedicated to educating our aspiring artist, writers and producers regarding the business of music through the use of books, comic strips, framed poetry and blogs.
SWP has compiled a set of publications which provides detailed information regarding methods and tactics used by the Music Business. These thought driven, life changing publications and other products are not easily accessible through mainstream publishers solely due to the information provided within conflicts with the goals of a billion dollar industry.
Tiwanda 'Ne Ne' Lovelace of Seven West Productions, was like many other unknown artists who were used and then discarded by the music industry. Lovelace was contracted with Zomba, a major music publishing company for Jive Records - now BMG-Zomba publishing company. It was then placed within Universal Music Publishing Group, becoming the world's largest music publishing business.
Instead of administering her publishing by securing copyrights and ensuring that her works were protected, the major publishing company neglected all their contractual obligations. However, what they didn't count on was that she had secured copyrights and maintained all related documentation.
After Zomba’s representatives failed attempts at having her sign management contracts with their Producers, she was provided with music tracks and encouraged to build her own team. Lovelace submitting and discussed 40+ songs, but it became clear that there was no intention of honoring that Agreement.
Other than the small amount received for the initial song placement, she never received a dime but she was forced to listen to her materials on the radio that were ‘gutted.’ However, she did received threats and became victims of acts of violence and civil rights violations.
Having been in the music industry since 1991, our company has more than 21 years of experience. She is now determined to help others before they sign a contract with a major company. It is her goal to ensure that every aspiring artist is fully equipped before they sign.
Unlike most authors, Lovelace will not only tell you exactly how it is but will provide documented proof. She provides uncut truth with a direct approach. These titles are informational and not for entertainment purposes.
Emotionally charged, her titles clearly express the pain and anger of being betrayed, sacrificed and scorned. Her story is of an unknown artist that that was subjected to continued acts of violence and oppression.
Our titles are presented through this artist/writer’s eyes while experiencing multiple tragedies and events. Inside, are the actual documentation and files used to demonstrate some of the tactics used to steal artist lives, deny rights and enslave the artist. These title are compiled using personal journals, public records, contracts, copyrights and other documentation which demonstrates how it is allowed to continue.
We hope that these books reached those who are unaware of the fact that even though the world is changing; it doesn't change for all.
Although some have been treated horribly by many, we should still treat people with courtesy and decency. We believe that this is where real change can start.
