Wyke has created its very own record label to provide aspiring musicians with a platform to get their music out to the masses.
The Music department has launched “Wyke Records” to give learners studying on its creative music courses the chance to release their own music to the public.
Students signed to the label will see their songs added to leading music streaming platforms, including Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music, thanks to licencing and distribution rights arranged by the College.
The record label is coordinated by Digital Music Production teacher, Steve Cutler, who wanted to give students the opportunity to showcase their talents to a wider audience and gain professional experience of writing, recording and releasing music.
Steve said, “The College are so excited to be launching our own label. Doing so will go a long way to giving the amazing talent we have here the platform to showcase their music and grow their audiences.”
“Run” by “End of the Line” (EOL) is the label’s first release. The band have been a regular at the College’s open music enrichment, “Wyke Sesh”, and have gained a strong following amongst the student community.
Further releases are plan for the summer term. Visit our social media for updates.
