With just under 1 week to go until the project ends, some of the students at Croydon College have set up a project on Kickstarter. Titled OutBr3ak Records, this project is where some of the students, including Croydon College, are planning to set up this record label, giving some of the students that share a passion for music the chance to let their creative side and musical side shine.
It is an absolute honour to talk about this project, as I told one of the students yesterday that I have spread the word on social networking sites, such as Facebook & Twitter, and with this article, I want to make sure that I get the word of this record label out in to the open, as the music department at Croydon College are itching to get all-new and fresh musical talents out there.
This is what the team at Croydon College have stated about this project, which fulfills a lot of musical potential:
We are the students of Croydon college music department, we are trying to put on a show for our record label launch and we hope to celebrate it with a big bang. As part of our course we are tasked with organising a gig for the launch of our record company which will be at Fairfield halls on the 19th June, the event will be an explosion of mixed genre’s with many acts to be seen, genres from pop, rock, rap, metal and even some pretty interesting mixes of ethnic styled music from all around the globe, so you can tell this will not be an event to miss. We have many videos and pictures of our progress on our social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. There we post our current progress with many videos and pics of the bands that will be playing and will be keeping all of our friends (you guys) updated on the current pace of our gig, so if you have em please check em out. The event will be amazing, but for such a thing to happen we really need some support from you guys reading this. Any donation made will be put toward this project and we really want this to be an enjoyable experience for both you guys but us too. We are looking to raise around £400.00 which will be our target price that will cover everything we need and will be the first steps to making this happen! We really hope that we can do this and hope that you guys will attend when it does. If you do donate we will send you a free media package containing our album, artwork and you will also have our deepest gratitude. Well that’s all of it; we hope to see you at the gig.
From the team”
Risks and challenges
“If we reach our goal there shouldn’t be any risk as the money we are hoping to raise will go to the venue and to us to produce posters and tickets for the main event.”
As Croydon College strives with a lot of potential, I feel honoured to share this with you all. Although I am unable to back this project myself, I wanted to help out by writing about this new record label, as I want to make sure I spread the word well and good, and that this will give you all the chance to back this project whilst the opportunity to fund it is still open.
If you want to help out and back this project for the new record label to blossom, please click here to be directed to the Kickstarter OutBr3ak Records page, where you can back this project. It would mean so much if you could help out the music department at Croydon College with this project, as they are looking to share all-new musical talents, and also give those at Croydon College the chance to let their musical roots shine through.
If you back this project, they have put a reward up, stating that for the small number of people who back this project (up to 10 backers), you will receive a copy of OutBr3ak Records’ debut album (self-titled), along with the album’s artwork as well. If you back this project now, the estimated delivery on this reward is set for delivery on release in July this year.
I think that this is a fantastic opportunity, as this will give those with musical talents the chance to shine, and will also be beneficial and useful in a wide range of aspects for those who are looking to take up a music career in the future.
Again, please make sure to back this project and help out, as this will give Croydon College’s Music Department the much-needed boost that it really needs.
