About The Promoter
Indiephiles.com is fueled by the independent artists drive to express their skill and and want to network with fellow artists of many different skill sets. The beauty in art been channeled to only being seen or noticed through so many different social mediums, that it has become flooded with so much nonsense that it takes away from it. Giving the artist a simple platform to express themselves with less focus on social media clutter allows more time to focus and really make solid connections with fellow artists alike.
