Future Youth Records, a new non-profit label based in the San Francisco Bay Area, has begun a series of sessions at Studio Trilogy in San Francisco, an 8,800-square-foot facility that houses three state-of-the-art control rooms, four integrated isolation booths, large tracking rooms, and an experienced staff. Producer Jason Wall founded the Future Youth label as the first full-service, non-profit record label dedicated to helping youth aged 12 to 17 years old to write and release original music.

"A lot of the positions in the recording industry that were once held by top music veterans are now gone,"Wall says. "Many new artists need guidance because they pay the costs of recording, manufacturing and promoting their music, only to have to give it away for free or at a big loss."

By taking the profit out of recorded music, Future Youth Records has created a new business model for youth to learn about professional recording and the realities of today's music industry. The goal of the label is to give kids of all socio-economic backgrounds the opportunity to write and record, while at the same time learning about the nature of well-recorded music.

"I want to level the playing field for talented young musicians," Wall explains. "We've got some top mentors onboard and these kids might be getting the chance of a lifetime. And to get their start at Studio Triology is a great place to begin—great acoustics, great equipment, and a smart and friendly staff."
