The Ardent Sessions serves many different functions. Not only is it a great way to showcase our premiere studio to young musicians, it allows them the opportunity to record in a professional environment with top-notch engineers so they have the chance to hear just how great their music can really sound. It is also a fantastic opportunity for us to share with them the great musical history of Memphis, and hopefully they will take that message with them and share it with the rest of the world. The bands can also use the recordings and videos to market their music free of charge. The shows are broadcast to millions of listeners via Breakthruradio.com and are a fantastic platform to break new artists.

Up until this point, the show has been entirely financed by Ardent. This feat takes 5 people and is not cheap. We would like to continue this ambassador program but we need to find a way to finance the shows for the next year.
The money will go to recording, mixing, mastering, video taping, photographing, video editing and promoting the show. The shows themselves will continue to be free via our website:
