Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) July 30, 2006 –-
Full Sail Real World Education congratulates graduate, Timothy “Tip” Wyman, for his extraordinary success opening the independent record label and recording studio, Wyman Records, based in Los Angeles, CA.
Wyman graduated from Full Sail with a degree in Recording Arts in 2003 and Wyman Records was founded in 2005. Within one year of operation, Wyman has expanded to 10 employees and two office locations. The company has instantly achieved success working with major artists such as: Kayne West, Three 6 Mafia and Paris Hilton. Recently, Wyman Records recorded and mixed Academy Award winning track, “Hard Out Here for a Pimp,” for Three 6 Mafia. MTV has also filmed on location in the studio, as well as an episode of the popular television series, “The Simple Life” which airs on E! Entertainment.
"Full Sail taught me the engineering skills that qualified me for a start in a professional studio. Similar to our class schedule, things happen at odd times and places in this business and I was prepared for long hours and hard work. I never knew what that meant until it happened for me."
Wyman also stated, "Full Sail stressed that the times change fast and that today is obsolete so don't ever stop exploring. My studies at Full Sail gave me an awesome tease to the music industry and jump started my ability to create a career for myself in this ever-changing and challenging business."
Wyman Records is negotiating a distribution deal with most major distributors and is being supervised as a label under Universal Music Group’s Monte Lipman. In addition, they are a certified vendor for Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony/BMG and Capitol Records.
“Full Sail is extremely proud of Tip and his great success with Wyman Records,” said Garry Jones, President of Full Sail. “His accomplishments both at Full Sail and within the industry are an example of the outstanding hard work and dedication our students and graduates exhibit each and every day.”
