JU One Spark Project #5: Dolphinium Records

Dolphinium Records is an independent record label that is run by Jacksonville University’s music department staff and music business students. Its goal is to provide local and regional artists with quality recordings in a professional atmosphere. In addition, Dolphinum Records strives to supply the student staff with knowledge of and hands on experience with all label operations. This includes the recording process, marketing and promotions, and live sound.

Because the label has been dormant for many years, funding is necessary to update the studio to what is now considered industry standard. The opportunity to upgrade would allow Dolphinium Records to supply it’s artists with the best quality of sound, as well as equip Jacksonville University¹s music business students with relevant experience for their futures in the industry.

In the past two semesters, the Dolphinium Records staff has utilized the technology that they do have. Since September of 2014, the label has recorded and produced 3 albums, organized successful shows both on and off campus, and gained their artists local, regional, and national press.
