Future Primal Is Back!

Feb 22, 2018

Welcome to the revamped Future Primal! I'd like to take a moment to address the changes here and thank you for visiting. If you've been here over the years, you'll recall how diversified FP's operations became. It was all great fun but the landscape has changed and, really, I just want to get back to the music. So, here's a quick list of what's what:

Music is IN: Future Primal's focus is now solely on the record label and this site as the central point of information for its artists and projects. So please be sure to follow here and on your prefered social channels!

New Media Design: Future Primal will no longer be providing these services, except in a support role to existing clients, and obviously for FPR artists and projects.

App Development: will continue for FPR's music production purposes but there are some changes to the publicly available apps. The CopyFeedLocation FireFox add-on has been dropped, mostly due to Mozilla's ridiculous upgrade cycle but also because it's just not that relevant these days. ADrpg has been moved to the Legacy section, more notes on its status can be found here.

Guitar Straps: While I am not planning to make more straps in the foreseeable future, I won't rule it out. I have materials ready and would like to use them up, but it's really a matter of inspiration and time. However, to each of you who own a Future Primal strap, I am always available to answer your questions and provide support if needed! I'm still bowled over by how much you all love them and use them, thank you! Please follow the Facebook page if you haven't already. If you'd like to have any of your photos with your FP strap(s) added to the gallery, shoot me an email or PM!

About

Future Primal Records is a private independent music label and publisher (ASCAP), operated by Micah Ethan Atwell*. Although occasionally involved with outside artists, FPR does not offer or accept solicitations for recording contracts, management, or representation. This website exists as a central source and promotional landing for in-house artists and projects.

Future Primal was founded in 2007 as Future Primal Arts, originally a brand for Atwell's beautifully handcrafted, totally unique, leather guitar straps. Though the quantity was limited, they sold very quickly and have even caught the attention of some prominent players and retailers in the US and UK.

New media design and application development were later added to Future Primal's repertoire, mainly providing web and print content services to an exclusive A & E client roster. Taking up the music label duties required by an independent musician was a natural progression. However, time would see Atwell pursuing career and life changes, and the need for consolidation became clear.

The focus now is solely on the operations of the label, Future Primal Records. Atwell's primary musical focus is on the Otherend project.

* Professionally and socially, I go by my middle name, Ethan, though for many years I wrote and released music under my first name as it was more unique.
