The label will give ACM students the experience needed 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.”
Since its opening in 1995, ACM has represented every corner of the creative industries. Metropolis Blue will act not only as a springboard for ACM students’ 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.”
