Creation District Records is an independent record label designed to break down barriers that keep youth experiencing homelessness or economic instability out of the professional music scene. Founded in 2018 in conjunction with musician, Hobo Johnson, Creation District Records brings the voice of youth out of notebook pages and into your headphones. Stocked with a full kit of professional recording gear, midi instruments, and soundproofing materials, Creation District Records sets up fully functional pop-up recording studios where youth are: shelters, bathrooms, garages, vans, sidewalks, and more. Each session includes an introduction to the world of recording, music and instrumental warm-ups, and the opportunity for youth to create beats and record their own music, comedy, or poetry. Youth who record walk away that same day with a flashdrive of their professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered track and are invited to sign on to the label. In “signing,” youth give up NO rights to their music, but will be added to our Spotify channel and receive support in promotion and album production.
