1770 Records was born in Professor Heather McDonald’s 2011 Arts Management class, Music in the Marketplace. Since its creation, we have worked with many artists that come from many genres, putting on shows at different venues around Charleston (Music Farm, Eclectic Cafe, Black Box Theater). In 2015, we were voted “Best Reason to Enroll at CofC” by the Charleston City Paper.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between Charleston’s burgeoning music scene and CofC by creating opportunities for local artists to share their music, and to give students hands-on music industry experience in the process. Made up of passionate students from across disciplines, our organization, events, and partnerships create a hub for music networking and collaboration.
