Discovering Philly on a Journey to Vanguard: An Interview with Colleen Evans

Through the Campus Philly career site, we’ve provided college students in the Philly area with opportunities to learn about the different career options available to them with experts from many different industries.

Raising Artists While Growing a Business: An Interview with Dave Silver, Co-Founder of REC Philly

You’ve probably been to a small underground show around your campus, where on-campus artists can get a taste of the spotlight and have the opportunity to introduce the greater community to their art.  Have you ever thought about the person whose job it is to execute those events? The one organizing every. single. little. thing for the shows to make sure the audience is having a good time, and the talent is getting their music heard by as many people as possible? 

Meet Dave Silver, co-founder of REC Philly, a space and community for creatives who want to turn their passion for music into a sustainable career. Dave found his passion for helping local artists while attending Temple University, and since his time there, he’s built a company from the ground up, working with well-known artists such as rock/soul singer Zeek Burse (“The Experience”) & folk artist Rachel Andie.
