One Moment Please…

We hosted live auditions for our Top 10 Program Artist applicants on Wednesday, June 1.

Now it’s the hard part. Who to select? Standby for the big reveal…


Each year, we record a 3 song EP for our “Program Artist.” This includes 30 hours of sponsored studio time to record 3 original songs, music producers, in-studio voice coaching, mixing services, mastering services, photo shoots, custom album designs, an album release party, marketing and promotional services, and music business consulting. In addition to all of that, artists receive mentoring from our team who help them get a better grasp on the business side of music, help them register with performing rights organizations, better understand royalties and help monetize their music.




The Idle Tuesdays Ambassador Program serves other nonprofits through music.

Idle Tuesdays Ambassadors are by nomination only and consist of singers, entertainers, parents, musicians, actors, speakers and celebrities.


Our goal at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio is simple: to influence culture through positive music. We’re launching the Ambassador Program this year to provide our community partners with the gift of music.


Each nonprofit partner is unique and we tailor our Ambassador Program to fit the needs, demographics and population of each organization.



Stay tuned to everything that's happening at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio!
