Vivienne Chi x Harry Shadow - "Dreams" Case Study

We sit down with Vivienne Chi and discuss how Point Blank Recordings helped make Dreams a success.

Point Blank Recordings (PBR) is a record label with a worldwide audience in the millions thanks to Point Blank Music School's extensive networks. The label aims to promote talent from within the School and link new artists and producers with established industry figures such as and Kathy Sledge, Kym Mazelle, Ultra Nate and Elisabeth Troy.  

Most of all, we aim to release great music from a variety of genres. Check out our latest label news and releases over at: pointblankrecordings.com.  

A&R at the label is headed up by industry veteran, Kwame Kwaten, who is passionate about discovering and developing new talent: 

“Being the Director of A&R at PBR is an exciting role that sees me blend two of my passions - discovering new talent and mentoring students. Music and education are for me the perfect blend. My mission is to uncover the many talented students that come through the School and establish a release platform for their music as they establish careers within the industry.

Point Blank has seen huge success with previous students such as Felix Jaehn (one billion streams), Patrick Topping (60 million streams), Aluna George (500 million streams), and Leona Lewis (700 million streams). Mistajam, Monki, Madam X, Gemma Cairney and Ben Scarr are also PB alumni.

PBRs latest track, 'Dreams', has already achieved over half a million streams, so we're very excited about our upcoming and future releases."

In addition to his role with Point Blank, Kwame is CEO of Ferocious Talent, Co-Director Cre8ing Vision & Ultimate Seminar, a Brit Awards Trustee, a Mobo Awards Trustee, Vice-Chair of the MMF (Music Managers Forum) and an independent record producer and Artist Manager.

Licensing & Sync

Students at Point Blank Music School also have the opportunity to earn money from their music via our licensing and sync connections. Through our partner agencies, PB students have already soundtracked worldwide advertising campaigns as well as gone on to score for feature films. Watch PB students Jake Warren and Eddie Yanez's European MTV Swatch campaigns below.  You can also watch an interview with Jake Warren on how PB kick started his career.

Sanchit Balhara studied Music Production at our London school and has since gone on to score seven feature films and over 100 commercials! He recently scored one of India's highest-grossing films, 'Bajirao Mastani'. Sanchit had high praise when reflecting on his time at PB: "In my opinion, Point Blank is one institute that focuses not only on the creative part of music but the business aspect as well."
