What is Brick City Records?
Brick City Records is Ohio University’s premier record label and focuses on providing students real world experience in multiple aspects of the recording and music industry.
Brick City is operated by School of Media Arts & Studies students and works with musicians to provide recording, promotion, distribution, publicity, and concert booking services.
Each year, Brick City produces and distributes new releases for a select number of artists, culminating in a large release concert in April.
Why Are We Creating a Campaign?
In previous years, Brick City Records was not much more than a group of students recording on-campus talent for some basic recording experience – well this year we gave that entire process a major overhaul.
Currently we are working with four artists originating from different areas of Ohio and have 3 EPs and 1 single, slotted for releases at the end of March into April. Music videos have also been created for each one of our artists to accompany their ‘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. Our showcase venue, The Union, was recently re-opened after a fire in November, 2014 caused significant damage to the property. We are glad to reunite with such a supportive venue.
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.

Risks and challenges
Our artists releases will all be distributed digitally through major steaming platforms. There is no risks or fears in that. The only potential let down is not being able to represent our hard efforts all year with an elaborate artist showcase. We truly want to host an event that people love and cherish - thus allowing Brick City Records to continue it's success for the years to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
