Rocket Science Audio is recording studio working to build an Internet Television station. We promote talent as an online content provider.

What inspired you to get into the business you are in today?

Years of recording experience and enthusiasm, coupled with being one of the first Memphis businesses to provide live steaming video and audio feeds of Memphis music events has led us to more ambitious goals. We are conscious that the world of mass media (Radio and Television) is becoming a smaller market for entertainment, as online content providers and streaming enabled devices are more commonplace. We have always looked to top ourselves with every production, using materials we have on hand.

How do you define success for yourself and for your business?

Success for Rocket Science Audio comes with every production we accomplish. Whether it comes from satisfied musicians completing their projects in our studio, event sponsors who were able to reach a broader audience via our streaming services or the episode productions we put on, each builds our content and brand. We are somewhat "lo-fi" in our methods and gear, but it works. We'll keep doing it, we'd just like some new gear to "do it better" and capture a broader client base.

How would you use the FedEx SMB Grant money to make a significant impact on your business and/or on others?

We would like to purchase new Audio/Visual gear to produce higher quality content. With the gear, we will have an opportunity to reach commercial revenue from advertisement, as well as provide higher definition to clients who need it. We have put together everything we need to do what we do, but there's only so far you can go with radio shack and duct tape. As mentioned before, we will continue to do what we do, we'd just like the gear to help us do it better.
