* A New Concept Music Label Brand & Business Model *
ARTISTS RECORDING COLLECTIVE (ARC) is an internationally recognized brand and professional recording label that emphasizes promoting and facilitating the distribution and utilization of the works created by our members. ARC provides a viable 21st Century Music Industry Platform for world-class talent! Based in the Kansas City metropolitan area with its main office located in the City of Leavenworth, Kansas, ARC serves artists-producers and boutique record labels who require a dynamic and multi-dimensional platform to present their works and services in an environment that is not under compulsion or creative restraint.
The Artists Recording Collective (ARC) was co-founded on December 7, 2007 by alto saxophonist, CHRIS BURNETT; tenor saxophonist, ERICA LINDSAY; and, pianist, SUMI TONOOKA as a professional response to an inherent void within the music industry then. Specifically, the co-founders endeavored to create and maintain a modern recording label brand to serve as a platform to promote and release the projects and recordings produced by professional artists and composers.
