West Long Branch, NJ—Blue Hawk Records is set to release its fifth compilation album, Blue Hawk Five, in the spring. Could the release be the turning point the label is hoping for?

Blue Hawk Five is the most ambitious album yet for the student-run record label here at Monmouth University. Auditions were held on Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, in Woods Theatre to find new, aspiring singers to record on the album. Students from outside of the music department, including math, English, and criminal justice majors, came out to the auditions with beautiful voices and captivating songs. All of the musicians who performed showcased their talents and told a story with their songs. 

With this fifth studio-produced effort, the label plans to expand its project outside of the University. They are hoping this album is bigger and better than the four previous compilations. Blue Hawk Five will be special because all of the acts chosen bring something different. The decision-making process was difficult because it was hard to choose between all of the incredible acts that came out to audition. Ultimately, the following artists were chosen for Blue Hawk Five: Tympanic Plexus, Shoreline, Lily Riche, Brian Perrino, and Tatiana Muslim. The album will feature many different genres that will appeal to a large audience.
