What is Brick City Records?
Brick City Records is Ohio University’s premier record label focusing on providing students real world experience in multiple aspects of the recording and music industry.
Brick City is operated by the School of Media Arts & Studies students and works with musicians to provide recording, promotion, distribution, publicity, and concert booking services.
Each year, the label produces and distributes new releases for a select number of artists, culminating in a large release concert in April. This year's show will be held at The Union on April 19th.
Why Are We Creating a Campaign?
Last year, Brick City underwent a huge overhaul to make the label more focused and organized, so the label could produce more quality products and services. Our efforts were hugely successful, and we strive to do even better this year. With Brick City’s expertise, our artists went on to gain vast statewide and national recognition, be featured on Spotify-curated playlists, and play at large scale music festivals including Firefly and SXSW.
We currently have four artists signed to our roster with genres varying from jazz-rock to R&B. Our artists come from different areas of Ohio, and are set to release one EP and three A Sides/B Sides in the spring. A music video has also been produced for each artist to accompany a single.
The underlying goal is to promote and create an elaborate artist showcase in order to honor our artists' efforts. To put on a great show – we need to have the available necessities, these include: promo materials, stage-design, equipment, and merchandise. Last year, we exceeded all expectations and sold over 200 tickets.
All of us at Brick City believe our artists have created strong upcoming releases and we want their music to be heard by as many people as possible. We hope to raise enough money to reach a larger audience and help our artists gain much-deserved recognition.
