The north half of the historic St Patrick's Church undercroft is now the Radio Artifact Soundstage. What started as Urban Artifact's live music venue in 2015 has morphed into the physical manifestation of Radio Artifact's media platform.
As we open back up from the Covid-19 shutdown, we are focused on providing safe, artist-focused recording sessions. Our shows are "live recording sessions". Imagine a Tiny Desk Concert, but on an intimate stage with live venue lighting, audio, and video equipment.
Audiences are invited to join us through paid tickets, with a majority of ticket revenue going straight to the artists.
Each show is video livestreamed for our ticketed online audience.
Each show is simultaneously audio recorded, and prepped for digital distribution in the Radio Artifact music catalog (and on the radio station!) Artists retain all ownership of their music and our base agreement allows artists to be paid a portion of streaming revenues. We work on Bandcamp and have a partnership with The Orchard to distribute audio onto every streaming download platform around the globe.
We LOVE working with touring artists. We can be a break in your tour schedule by providing a productive stop. Drop in, record your current live set in the afternoon on an off day, and then get some sleep early or head on to the next gig.
We also offer the studio to be rented out for artists interested in separate recording and distribution partnership. Recording packages start at $1,300.
Radio Artifact is a Cincinnati, Ohio based local, independent radio station and music platform.
