About P Is For Panda
After leaving his previous label, The Militia Group (which he founded and operated for 12 years), P Is For Panda owner Chad Pearson ironically chose to cut music out of his life entirely. He entered into various career paths that had nothing to do with the industry, but eventually found himself returning to music. Since starting P Is For Panda in 2007, Pearson has found success selling t-shirts, thanks largely in part to support from the indie t-shirt blogging community. The idea behind P Is For Panda is to give back to the community, a portion of profit from both the shirts and music will be donated to a charity of the artists choosing. We believe it takes small steps by a group of individuals to create change in our world. This is our way of trying to do our part.
Now that P Is For Panda is entering into the realm of music, it’s only natural that Pearson partner with his old friend and fellow humanitarian Louis Posen. Through the partnership with thriving independent label Hopeless Records and its philanthropic arm Sub City the Atlanta area-based organization is launching an imprint to serve a wide variety of indie rock artists. “My goal with P Is For Panda is to be more involved in the community,” states Pearson, “The mission statement is quite simple: music + art + charity.”
