In 2006, Jay Shields had a vision to create a platform that would serve as a one-stop-shop for artists and small business owners. This vision gave birth to the Southern Coalition Movement (S.C.M.), which has since become a powerhouse in the industry.

The Southern Coalition Movement is more than just a networking hub; it is a comprehensive platform that offers a wide range of services to support the growth and success of artists and small business owners. Let’s take a closer look at what SCM has to offer:

Royalty Paying Radio Stations

SCM is home to multiple royalty paying radio stations, providing artists with a platform to showcase their music to a wide audience. These stations not only offer exposure but also ensure that artists receive fair compensation for their work.

Print and Online Magazine

As part of SCM, there is a nationwide print magazine and a global online magazine. These publications serve as a platform for artists and small business owners to share their stories, promote their work, and connect with a larger audience. Whether it’s through the glossy pages of the print magazine or the digital reach of the online platform, SCM provides a valuable avenue for exposure.

Annual Awards Show

One of the highlights of SCM is its annual awards show, which attracts people from around the world. This event celebrates the talent and achievements of artists within the SCM community. It provides a platform for recognition and serves as a catalyst for further success.

Graphic Design and Promotional Services

SCM understands the importance of branding and marketing for artists and small business owners. To support their endeavors, SCM offers graphic design and promotional services. From logo design to social media campaigns, SCM helps its members create a strong and consistent brand presence.
