What is Brick City Records?
Brick City Records is Ohio University's premier record label focusing on providing students real world experience in multiple facets of the recording and music industry.
Brick City Records 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 Brick City Records Showcase will be held at The Union on Thursday, April 18th.
Why Are We Creating a Campaign?
Each year, Brick City Records continues to become more focused and organized ensuring that we have the ability provide better quality services to our artists. Our efforts have been hugely successful this past year, and we strive to do even better this year. With Brick City’s expertise, our artists have gone 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 R&B to electronic-pop. Our artists come from different areas of Ohio, and are set to release new music 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, our showcase was a massive success and we hope to continue this success for our artists this year.
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.

Risks and challenges
Our artists and Brick City Records teams have been working hard all year to create meaningful and creative music, all leading up to our final Brik City Records release concert. The only potential let down is not being able to represent our artists' and teams' hard work with an elaborate artist showcase. We truly want to host an event that people love and cherish - thus allowing Brick City Records to continue its success for many years to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
