The Public Record is the host for a totally new interactive recording concept. Imagine not only being able to play on your favorite artist’s latest release, but actually influencing the musical direction of the recording. The Public Record bridges the gap between artist and fan; pro session player and amateur musician. It is the hub where you can stay informed on the progress being made on a record that is as much YOUR record as it is the artist’s. Those bands featured on The Public Record will be utilizing the wealth of talent from those who ultimately care about their music the most-the fans.

All you need is to have access to basic digital recording software and an internet connection. With that, you will be able to download early stage “skeletons” of the material and will be given the opportunity to shape the progression of those songs. Unlike releasing stems for remix after the record is complete, you will be collaborating on what will become the official version of that song. Your riffs, vocals, sound effects, counter melodies, or whatever inspires you, can be submitted for a chance to be included into the final mix. Simply log in, download those work-in-progress tracks into your digital audio workstation (ProTools, Logic, Garageband, etc.), record all your best ideas and then upload them to

The Public Record gives everyone a chance to freely share in the creative process of professional music production from the comfort of your bedroom, garage or home studio.
