In today’s music industry we have had a mass increase in artists that attempt new music careers. In the past, artists used to support each other, but with the rise in numbers brought on by so much competition, they have turned against each other. Tieron Simon noticed this change and decided to do something about it. He recently started an organization called LDE (Last Defense Entertainment) where the mission is to bring the music industry together again – how it used to be.
Tieron’s Motives For LDE
Tieron Simon is not out to create this platform to “chase clout” as he’s already reached huge status milestones in his hometown city of Seattle. Being drummer for Romero Franceswa, going on tour, and excelling as a producer, Tieron has tasted success and now sets off on an unprecedented journey to share with the rest. He now has been stepping out to give back to the industry that he has gained so much from.
The LDE Solution
The solution Tieron came up with for the torn comradery in the music industry is his event called LDE. In his own words, LDE is about “building artists and providing the tools, connections, and help for the community as a whole to create a better environment”. With this event now reaching its first year, it has already held three sessions and has hosted over one hundred artists all together.
A Unique Event Of Its Kind
The events of LDE are like no other as they all tend to have a rustic feel. Tieron typically rents out a 16-20 bedroom mansion-like estate in a beautiful secluded location. This most recent event ‘LDE 003’ was held in Bremerton, Washington where artists from all around the state came, bringing their music equipment and readiness to attend. After getting settled in Tieron’s cultivated environment, each artist began meeting one another and engaging in natural collaboration each day of the event. This was exactly how the music industry was before, and what Tieron intends to bring it back to.
Teaching and Mentorship Aspects
The collaboration aspect of LDE makes it a one of a kind experience but it even goes a step further with its education model. With each event, Tieron Simon uses his industry connections to bring on keynote speakers who have found success in their music fields. From music moguls, to orchestrative composers, each artist is able to attend daily sessions to hear them speak. When asked about why he brings on these speakers Tieron said, “This is to level up people on their journeys by providing answers to unknowns. This is good for the city”. The knowledge LDE brings seems to be invaluable and not something you get from your average Youtube video.

The Future For LDE and Tieron Simon
For years the music industry has been crying for something to unite the major players in it once again. Tieron Simon has seen this and is now attempting to make LDE the savior of this problem. With plans to expand from Seattle to major cities like LA, Atlanta, and New York in the next few years, Tieron’s collaboration model is definitely something to keep an eye on.
