Starting a business is guaranteed to be a thought in almost every student’s mind while in college. It is never too early to start making plans, or start building the business that they wish to pursue. In his 2nd quarter and her 5th quarter at the Institute of Production and Recording, Kody Flynn and Lindsie Heitzman started their plan for their business: AM-J Studios.

The beginning of AM-J Studios will mainly focus on one aspect of the music industry: acting as a recording studio. Kody will be Head Engineer (engineering and producing all of the clients who are with the company) while Lindsie will be the Studio Manager (dealing with the contracts, scheduling, and budgeting of the studio). As they work to get themselves more clients to be working with, they will keep the business to strictly a two-person company. Everything that needs to be done is going to be done by them for as long as they can keep it up, and afterwords they will hire people under them. When AM-J gains more recognition and makes a name for themselves as a business, they will officially establish themselves as a business through the Minneapolis Business Bureau all the while branching out into all the fields of the industry that they wish to acquire.

On top of being a recording studio, AM-J will eventually branch out to be a full-on record label (with added benefits). AM-J’s goal as a business to be an all-in-one entity for the artists it represents. Clearly, AM-J (the recording studio) will have loyal clients who record with them. If said artist is unrepresented and AM-J feels confident in pursuing this artist, the artist could also chose to/be offered to be signed under AM-J records. Within the record label side, AM-J will promote and help further the artist’s reach in their market.

AM-J starts now, and will do nothing but expand from here on out.

I have worked in and out of studios ever since I was 15 years old.

I have played in a few bands by the names of

This Dream We Speak, Anastacious, A Path Not Chosen, and Marina.

It was nothing national, but it was a good time.

As of right now I am starting a solo project by the name of AM-J.

Expect more from that in the near future.

This blog will be talking about mostly things like:

issues and events happening in the music industry,

meditation and spirituality,

things happening in my life,

and tips to make your media have higher quality.

On top of covering these topics, this blog can be used as a means of communication

If you need advice or someone to talk to.
