Blue Hawk Records Announce Artists

Blue HawkFor the eighth year and 15th semester in a row, Blue Hawk Records, the student-run label at Monmouth University, has released a compilation album to showcase the talents on campus.

Finalized artist selections for the 15th compilation EP are finally here! As a part of the Music Industry major, the Advanced Record Strategies class held auditions in which sixteen songwriters/artists from across campus took a shot at acquiring one of the five total spots on this semester’s record.

Auditioners ranged in style from Singer-Songwriter to R&B to Alternative and truly brought their all to the table for this opportunity. Upon release, the compilation will be pressed for physical copies and distributed to major streaming platforms, such as Spotify and Apple Music.

After a great deal of deliberation, Blue Hawk Records proudly announces the artists to be featured on the upcoming record: sophomore Sofia Dominguez, freshman Gabrielle Estrada, freshman Delaney Rivera, sophomore music industry student Tina Siciliano, and sophomore Vic Tartara.

Some artists have expressed their excitement for this upcoming album. Scilliano was introduced to Blue Hawk Records when she recorded her track, “I’m Gone,” on the 13th album, “Superstition.” She is “looking forward to what experiences this new album brings” for her as an artist. Selected artists and label members alike are ready to bring the album of the season.

Since the first record, students involved with the program have set up auditions, managed selected artists, helped in the completion of songs, and by the end, have aided in recording each song at Lakehouse Studios in Asbury Park.
