Match Records is a real-world practicum experience where students get a chance to BE the record label, with key executives in charge of defined aspects of the business.
- Students will sign, A&R, produce, package, market, deliver, and help manage and book the artist and their music from beginning to end - utilizing ALL the elements that are being studied in Department of Recording Industry program.
- Match Records set into place foundational marketing elements of each artist such as websites, branding basics, internet portal for artist review, as well as label expansion capabilities such a publishing, artist management, booking, and app development.
- Match Records PRESENTS! is a project arm of the organization that stages various programs including showcases, talent contests, student events, and the Department of Recording Industry’s “Listening Night” where outstanding studio performances are featured - a big night each semester.
- All these efforts are to generate experience to the Match Records' team while creating
awareness for the incredibly talented MTSU students who deserve recognition and a
"light" shown on them - but the experience could be expanded beyond the hallowed halls
of campus as the reach of talent and practice merges with Music City.
