It’s been another exciting semester at Village Records. Following our fall recording session with the Australian band Tigertown, we are now placing the final touches on a project in which we are printing vinyl postcards featuring their song “What You Came Here For” recorded last semester with the VR team. The vinyl postcards will be used for promotion and sent to a variety of influencers in the music industry in order to increase visibility and establish new connections for the band. It is an exciting process and we strongly believe this outreach could lead to future projects for Tigertown.
Village Records has also recently concluded an extensive A&R search, and after reviewing many talented artists we have finally decided to work with the talented Kiah Victoria, an NYU Tisch senior. At such a young age Kiah has already had a great deal of experience in the world of performing. From starring in the Lion King on Broadway at age 10 to being featured in Jay-Z’s “Picasso Baby” it is clear Kiah is destined for great things and VR is very excited to be working with her. As a kick-off to the start of this new partnership, VR will be working in collaboration with the Concert Management class to help promote Kiah’s upcoming performance on May 3 at 11:30 pm ET at Joe’s Pub. As a preview before this show VR will be streaming a short acoustic session of Kiah performing in Washington Square Park. This performance will be the start of an ongoing “VR: Sessions in the Square” series produced by VR featuring musicians from NYU and the Greenwich Village area playing under the arch. All session performances will be streamed online through the Stageit platform.
As the semester comes to a close VR looks forward to finishing up work on these exciting new additions to the Village Record brand and welcoming in next semester’s team. Be sure to follow our blog for news on upcoming projects and updates on the Kiah Victoria concert!
