This week, five rising artists will get the opportunity to record original music in one of Nashville’s premier recording facilities, thanks to the previously announced Converse Rubber Tracks pop-up studio experience by Converse Inc.
For the first of three pop-up experiences in Nashville, the following five Nashville artists were selected: five piece “indie-surf” group Kristoff Waltz, hip-hop artist Mike Floss, three-piece rock group Hans Condor, singer-songwriter Emily Hackett, and sibling rock trio Music Band. Artists of all ages and genres were invited to apply.
The artists will record at top-shelf Nashville recording facility Grand Victor Sound Studio (formerly known as RCA Studio A) this week. Following the recordings, the artists will retain all rights to their music.
The program will return to Nashville with two additional, week-long pop-up studios in 2016.
“This week marks the first Converse Rubber Tracks pop-up experience in Nashville and we’re excited to work with local artists who truly represent the city’s talent,” said Jed Lewis, Converse Global Music Marketing Director. “We’ve seen huge success with the program worldwide, and we hope to be useful to the next generation of emerging artists here in ‘Music City.’”
Born out of the desire to give back to the global music community and encourage creativity, Converse Rubber Tracks seeks opportunities to provide resources to emerging artists around the world who may not have the means to afford studio time. Since the program’s start four years ago, Converse has brought the Converse Rubber Tracks experience to spirited music cities including San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, Austin, Toronto, Montreal, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Mexico City, Barcelona, and many more, giving over 1,600 emerging musicians valuable recording time at state-of-the-art studios with a team of experienced engineers, at no cost to the artists.
