Last Chance Music....it's your music.....
In 1991 Von formed Last Chance Music to address the challenges faced as an independent artist, namely publishing and distribution. He also needed a formal business entity for tax and legal purposes. Last Chance Music signed a distribution agreement in 1998 with a then-fledgling company called The Orchard. The Orchard has become one of the leading distributors of music, film/TV, video, and e-books, worldwide. As The Orchard has grown, it has become increasingly difficult for small acts to get involved. After consulting with several fellow songwriters, solo artists, and bands facing the same challenges, Von decided to turn Last Chance Music into a Co-op to let these artists take advantage of all that The Orchard has to offer under the Last Chance Music umbrella.
