ACM and Metropolis Studios have proudly launched a brand new record label initiative run by students, for students, with expert guidance from industry professionals at the award-winning Metropolis Studios.
By joining ACM’s unparalleled creative industry education with Metropolis’s world-class status, ACM students will gain the experience they need to get ahead in this competitive industry. Chairman of ACM and Owner of Metropolis Studios Kainne Clements said: “We promised more industry-based learning and connected opportunity than any other provider and I am both excited and proud to deliver on this by launching the new record label, specific to ACM, powered by Metropolis.”
Building long-lasting, sustainable careers since 1995, ACM represents every corner of the creative industries, creating a microcosm of the business with its talented student body. MetropolisBlue will act not only as a springboard for ACM student’s careers as artists, producers, managers, and entrepreneurs, but will also teach them the vital skills they need to make informed decisions about their futures.
This exclusive initiative is not just about the songwriters and artists who get a professional release for their tracks, but everyone else along the way, too, who are all part of the life of a song from initial inspiration to its commercial release. Performers, Songwriters, Artists, Producers, Business and Technical Services students will not only be writing and releasing music, they’ll be running a label; organising PR and launch events; developing branding and marketing output; managing sync opportunities; delivering technical support, production and recording, mixing and mastering in a professional studio environment, mentored by established music professionals with a wealth of industry experience.
Richard Connell CEO at Metropolis Studios said: “Metropolis is renowned for sonic excellence, customer service and placing the artist at the centre of everything. We don’t just represent what the industry does, we are what the industry is doing, here and now, and I see it as a privilege to share this with the emerging talent that are the ACM students, from day 1.”
This new offering means that ACM students are uniquely placed to receive exclusive industry experience that opens doors into the creative industries whilst they are still in education. As firm believers in learning by doing, ACM is proud to show its next generation of creative talent to the industry and looks forward to seeing its students succeed in the business.
