Rated-Ransom is all about celebrating Independent Artists — musicians, writers, entrepreneurs, actors, educators and many others, throughout Chicagoland and other major cities.

This blog was developed to create a space that focuses on indie artists because it’s simple — they deserve it. Why should they have to wait for a mainstream platform to recognize their gift when they have Rated-Ransom to deliver and share with others?

The artist’s craft and resources may be able to help someone; inspire someone. Not to mention …we never know who’s watching and would like to extend an even greater opportunity to artists and help them reach the bigger masses.

While readers may catch an occasional mainstream artist highlighted here at Rated-Ransom, what they can consistently expect to see is the latest scoop on the positive, tasteful culture and craft of Chicago’s lifestyle scenes and music events.

Rated-Ransom will continue to highlight moments ranging from entertainment variety, underground projects and independent promotions to other metro happenings, editorials, public relations and publishing for artists.

Stay connected and expect to crave more Music. Culture. Lifestyle.
