With community at the heart of his mission, warner case will be indirectly showcasing his label while on tour.
warner case plans to host label showcases in New York and Los Angeles during the tour, offering fans the chance to experience performances from Top Right artists, blending phenomenal live acts with the energy-rich atmosphere unique to live shows. He also describes the tour as a deliberate departure from the norm, stating, “The inspiration came from wanting to do something more cohesive and intentional. I’m used to doing strings of one-off shows, which feel like a bunch of incoherent single releases. To me, a proper tour feels like a purposeful album – an experience.”
While the label is only explicitly featured twice in the tour, the sounds behind here and now will encapsulate the imprint’s musical identity. “The ‘here and now’ EP is the first EP on my label, and I feel it’s a good showcase of Top Right Records as a whole. It’s an EP of what truly strikes me and feels authentic, like all the records Top Right releases,” he emphasized. And with the digital world becoming ever so integrated with that of reality, warner case hopes that the warmth and shared connection experienced at the shows will become a beacon of the label’s identity.
To create a distinctive ambiance that mirrors the label’s ethos, warner case and his team are committed to crafting a live environment that goes beyond album art and social media. He envisions the tour as a conduit to public perception, allowing audiences to associate the label with tangible, real-life experiences. “Finally,” he shared, “fans of Top Right Records will have a physical element to associate with it. It’s just not album art and social media on a phone screen; it’s the people they meet at shows, the real-life community and experiences.”
Breaking away from convention, warner case plans to integrate a live element into his performances, featuring live vocals over intentional song choices to deliver a cohesive live experience. Admitting his initial reluctance to embrace live vocals, he expressed, “I’m doing it because, frankly, it’s been something that has scared me for a long time. And usually what scares me is the most rewarding and exciting when i try it.” This courageous endeavor is motivated by the opportunity to deliver something truly special and push the boundaries of his artistic comfort zone.
