San Francisco, CA (March 6, 2013)—Studio Trilogy, which reportedly features Northern California’s only 80-channel SSL 9000K console with Ultimation, is hosting sessions by new Bay Area non-profit label Future Youth Records.
Founded by producer Jason Wall, the label is said to be the first full-service, non-profit record label dedicated to helping youth 12-17 years old write and release original music. “A lot of the positions in the recording industry that were once held by top music veterans are now gone,” Wall remarked. “Many new artists need guidance because they pay the costs of recording, manufacturing and promoting their music, only to have to give it away for free or at a big loss.”
By taking the profit out of recorded music, Future Youth Records has created a new business model for youth to learn about professional recording and the realities of today’s music industry. The goal of the label is to give kids of all socio-economic backgrounds the opportunity to write and record while at the same time learning about the nature of well-recorded music.
“I want to level the playing field for talented young musicians,” Wall explained. “We’ve got some top mentors onboard and these kids might be getting the chance of a lifetime. And to get their start at Studio Trilogy is a great place to begin—great acoustics, great equipment, and a smart and friendly staff.”
