When did music become just about money and fame? Our name mocks the greedy business landscape with which musicians have become all too familiar. Music is art, and its creation should be as enjoyable of a process as its release.
Villain Place has grown from a humble concept in 2010, into a creative agency for musicians offering audio, video, and design products. Our goal is to provide affordable creative products for musicians. We are physically based in Nashville, Tennessee. We welcome you to get in touch with us for projects and inquiries.
