In September 2015, Converse Rubber Tracks opened the doors to 12 of the world’s most legendary recording studios to 84 emerging artists. What happened next was up to them. Converse Rubber Tracks is a global family of community-based professional recording studios. Emerging musicians of all genres can apply for free studio time, and if selected, artists record at no cost while maintaining the rights to their own music.
Converse gave talented these young artists the keys to iconic studios like Abbey Road Studios in London and Stankonia in Atlanta, where they were joined by world-renowned producers and sound engineers, in addition to big names like Big Boi and Mark Ronson, who acted as mentors during their recording sessions. Usually, authentic talent outlasts studio manufactured talent, and these 84 emerging artists have already proved their raw abilities. By having some of the best equipment at their fingertips, they’re only inching closing to their dreams.
