Converse Opens A Free Recording Studio In Brooklyn
Converse has opened a state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, New York as a thank-you to the music community that has supported the brand over the years.
In an unprecedented give-back to its core customer base—Chuck Taylors have been a staple of both rock and West Coast rap for decades—”Rubber Tracks” (the name of the studio) is available to artists at no charge, and each artist or group has up to two days of recording time. According to Bizmology, artists retain all rights to their recordings although they’re encouraged to give up some of those rights so the company can stream Rubber Tracks’ offerings across the internet.
“By opening Converse Rubber Tracks, it’s a way for us to say thank you to musicians all over who have helped us become the brand we are and to provide a place for new artists to have access to resources they may not be able to afford,” Converse Chief Marketing Officer Geoff Cottrill said in a release. “This is our way to invest in the future of music and we couldn’t be more excited about it.”
