Create Culture Records is in the final days of reviewing applicants for the Music Madness contest. This contest is open to all genres of music and will match various artists against each other. The contest will also be heavily influenced by social media to give up-and-coming artists instant exposure. The founder of C2 Records was inspired by a visit to Graceland, and desires to find musically talented individuals and help them break into the music industry. Create Culture Records, also known as C2 Records, is an independent music label created to discover and nurture untapped musical talent. With a forward emphasis on prioritizing artists, C2 Records offers a fresh and unique view on contractual and promotional opportunities for artists by evolving the current industry standards.
C2 is excited to announce that 9-time Grammy nominated Engineer Dee Brown is a part of the C2 Records team to assist aspiring artists.

He is excited to be the mixing engineer for the finalists during the end portion of the competition, as well as future productions with C2 Records.
Just Rock has also partnered with C2 Records, and their experts be providing vocal lessons from a confidence building perspective. Just Rock will also work with contestants and provide vocal technique including but not limited to breathing, pitch building, and more. In addition to the general vocal exercises listed above, Just Rock will incorporate their staff (who have been trained by some of the best universities) to incorporate scales, music theory, and stage choreography.
C2 records is working closely with other artists outside the competition and will be announcing the signing of new artists in the very near future. C2 Records’ approach to artist management and music production breaks away from the traditional methods used by most traditional labels. By allowing their artist’s a broader sense of freedom in their music, as well as providing early compensation on royalties, C2 provides a rich environment for artists on the label to grow and create.
To Promote Music Madness, C2 Records is partnering with Los Angeles based talent management group AVM Group to provide contestants with exposure and opportunities on the live-streaming app LIVIT. The artists selected to participate will be awarded streaming contracts valued at $1,000 or more. With over 40 million registered users worldwide, LIVIT will provide artists even greater opportunity to connect with their audience and monetize their talent. LIVIT’s focus on growing and nurturing talent, while giving them a platform to benefit financially, perfectly aligns with C2 Records.
To further that vision, C2 Records established the Music Madness contest, providing an incentive for aspiring musicians and artists to share their talent with others. With $65,000 in total cash and prizes C2 Records is providing production, marketing of songs, and artist coaching to name a few. Music Madness is the perfect opportunity for any aspiring artist to reach for the stars. The label has even invested in a mobile studio, hoping to meet artists anywhere, at any time.
