Match Records is spearheaded by Recording Industry Assistant Professor Stacy Merida. The concert was part of MTSU’s Week of Welcome, sponsored by New Student and Family Programs. Events included a Student Organization Fair and Department Fair and concluded with Crash the Commons.

Match Records strives to involve students in all aspects of a traditional record label: talent acquisition and development, production, marketing and distribution. In turn, students gain real-world experience and opportunities for networking. To learn more about Match Records, check out matchrecordsmusic.com or contact Merida at stacy.merida@mtsu.edu.
