Folk Without Borders


The germ of the idea started long ago, but what brought it into motion was of all things an explosion. When Boston was attacked in 2013 Jake Bush immediately began connecting people and events reaching out to start a fundraiser for the victims of the event. His music partner's wife worked a mile away from where the blast happened and the two focused on how they could leverage the music community to help.


It wasn't the first time they had put together a show for charity and in truth it wasn't even a particularly successful effort as wonderful giants of Boston were able to put together much more, but it was the first time Jake & Ethan began speaking with major venues and artists. Those efforts attracted attention from like minded community members and led to their involvement in other charitable events.


It's taken five years to refine that idea and to broaden what we hope to do. It also took the addition of the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance's Courtney Rodland and MOR Wealth Management's Matthew Ramer to put together the full picture. Our goal is significant, but our dedication is unwavering.


We have built an organization that matches brilliant artists with worthy causes, and in the process created a realistic and sustainable fiscal path for Folk and Roots Artists.


  • Through embracing modern content platforms - Youtube, Spotify, Discord, and Twitch - we will present the artists we work with in a 21st century way.

  • Through a focus on Career Development, our Artist Management team will partner with our our Musicians to plan, create, and execute against realistic and sustainable career and fiscal goals leveraging a partnership with MOR Wealth Management Financial Firm at no cost to our artists.

  • Utilizing a world class recording facility in the Greater Boston area, Mastering Studio in Philadelphia, and location based services available for projects in Mid-Coast Maine, Tribal Mischief can offer Production Services and Consultation both in one of our studios, or one closer to you, we will ensure that the artists we work with have recordings that reflect their vision and maintains technical excellence.


Most importantly, artist development is only half of our story. Our dream is to build a community of Thinkers, Doers, and Creators. We'll talk more about that, in the next blog post! Welcome to Tribal Mischief, or should I say, Welcome Back.
