Shared Islands is Jake May (@__jakemay) and David West (@artishardrecs). Together we’re funding the printing of uniquely designed, limited edition t-shirts with bands that we love. We’re creating each band their own tee, giving them a certain number for free to sell at gigs, and then selling the rest from our online store.
We decided to launch to help out those bands that otherwise might not have the time or money to get t-shirts designed or made themselves. The bands are involved the whole way and our ultimate aim is to help them out - so they can continue to play the gigs that we love to go to and make the songs that we love to hear.
Each month we'll design and print a new t-shirt with a band that we love. Artists we've worked with in the past include Crushed Beaks, Tyrannosaurus Dead, Playlounge, and Joanna Gruesome.
