Craft and Jun is an artist management label created in 2014. The label does not focus on a certain genre of music. Otherwise, they push their artists to create and hone their craft, thus the name.
The label started with only two artists, Samuel Seo and Raw By Peppers, both of which were introduced to the mainstream public through MNET’s Sing Street. As time went by, the label welcomed new artists and producers into their label: Windy City, Kim Banjang, Jang Wook, Kim Isle, Ian Kash, George, Deepfry and Poy.
