Artist Residency


Every year, the Embassy looks for emerging artists to award studio time.  Selected artists work one-on-one with an engineer to record a full-length album or EP. They also perform at a music showcase and participate in artist development workshops.

By the end of their residency, selected artists will have furthered their knowledge of the studio work process and music business, have professional recordings of their material,  have a portfolio of professional portraits of themselves, and have performed live.

Applications have closed for our 2021 Recording Artist Residency. We will have an open call for next year’s reseidency in Spring 2022.

Please follow us on Instagram @theembassystudio for updates and email us at embassy@materialinstitute.org with any questions. 

Love, The Embassy!
