Originally founded in 2015, Ruby Recordings is a rising record label and talent management agency based in Utica, NY. The label is owned and managed by Travon Howard, a 26 year old native with musical mastery and a natural finesse. Music and formation have been a part of Travon’s skill sets for a long time. Travon is a music artist himself and he’s known professionally by the name of Trizzy. He’s already released several of his own singles under his Trizzy name over the last five years. Travon found his passion and talent for music when he was still just a little kid. By the age of 5 he had already written his first song and by the age of 12 he had taught himself to create instrumentals.
After years of being in the industry Travon decided to create a space that caters to the needs of other artists that are like him. And this is when the label Ruby Recordings came to life. A part of the label’s success comes from their ability to acquire corporate partnerships that helped to solidify the brand as a major player in the industry. These deals and connections also have a significant part in helping to legitimize the artists that are on Ruby Recordings roster. Some of the artists that have already benefited from signing with the label include Lifeof9000, Michael Wavves, Haitian Fresh, FriO Isa Blaque, JT5K, Steevy Franch, and AB Tazz. But like most businesses around the country in the varying sectors, Ruby Recordings was not left unscaved by the economic impacts brought on by the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020. But the record label rose to the occasion and came out stronger than ever. After surviving the pandemic and seeing business starting to pick up again, Travon is ready to rejuvenate his label.
As we begin to look forward to 2022, Ruby Recordings is excited about their upcoming artists. The label pushes the artists and the listeners into one arena while providing them with a platform geared for optimal interaction. Travon Howard believes that an artist’s persona is not accidental, but instead demands a lot of work to get it just right. Ruby Recordings offers a variety of services to music artists that can help take their career to the next level. They provide marketing services, social media management, album graphics, music videos, and much more while also helping to create partnerships with producers, venues, and other prominent figures in the music and entertainment industry. The label also has distribution which is through The Orchard, a company under Sony Music. Ruby Recordings is actively seeking out fresh, new, and exciting talent to sign to their roster so they can help artists achieve their goals. So get ready for 2022 to be a big year for the label as they continue to reach new heights with each artist that they’ve been signing.
