While Atlanta’s musical pedigree may be overshadowed by the reputations of other southern towns, such as Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans, Georgia’s capital, today a national center of business, commerce, and transportation, and home to 4.5 million residents, has played a major or contributing role in the development of various genres of American music at different points in the city’s history.

In the 1920s, Atlanta helped launch the country’s earliest music-recording ventures; the first field-recording session of Fiddlin’ John Carson took place there in 1923 and various blues artists also laid down tracks for the nation’s nascent record industry. For a time, it looked as if the city would become the South’s central repository for blues and country. But by the end of the 1930s, Nashville had become the capital of country music, and the Depression had dampened enthusiasm for the blues. The city’s lack of recording facilities and music industry infrastructure kept Atlanta on music’s periphery throughout the 1940s and 50s.
That is not to say that Atlanta did not possess a robust, live music scene, throughout the remainder of last century. Gospel, jazz, rock’n’roll, country, soul, R & B, classical music, and opera all had their performers and their fans. Notable venues, such as the Peacock Club, were found along Auburn Avenue—a center of the African-American business community. During the countercultural 1960s, Atlanta hosted the Atlanta International Pop Festival, with the 1969 festival taking place more than a month before Woodstock and featuring many of the same bands. The city was also a center for Southern rock during its 1970s heyday.
But it was only in the 1980s and 90s, when rap and hip-hop came on the scene, that Atlanta began to achieve some measure of national musical prominence. By the mid-1990s, the rise of OutKast, Goodie Mob, and Organized Noize led to the development of the Southern style of hip-hop, gaining Atlanta a reputation for “soul-minded hip-hop eccentrics.” In 2009, the New York Times christened the city as “hip-hop’s center of gravity.”
Today, Atlanta’s hip-hop scene continues to thrive, as does its pop, indie rock, and heavy metal genres. The Atlanta Jazz Festival, regarded as one of the country’s largest free jazz fests, is 37 years old. Metro Atlanta is also home to the Grammy Award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Atlanta Opera, the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, the Atlanta Boy Choir, and many other organizations.
Not every musical group or organization has the ability to land a major recording company contract. In fact, the vast majority of music artists never get “signed” by a label. But the good news is that, today, almost every musical act, whether rap, hip-hop, jazz, classical, or other, has the ability to self-record an album and then reproduce those tracks for public consumption. At Bison Disc, we duplicate, replicate, and package music CDs at an affordable price for musicians of any genre. And a group doesn’t have to have millions of fans to take advantage of our services. We can duplicate or replicate CDs to the precise number needed.
Some popular Atlanta musical venues include: the Phillips Arena, the HiFi Buys Amphitheatre, the Roxy, the Variety Playhouse, the MJQ Concourse, the Earl, the Echo Lounge, the Village, the Apache Café, Blind Willies, and Eddie’s Attic. And many of the city’s churches produce powerhouse gospel music Sunday after Sunday.
Eclipsing Atlanta’s reputation as hip-hop city is its more recent derivation as the South’s center for film and TV production. According to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the local film and television industry generated $5.1 billion in economic impact in 2014. In fact only California, New York, and Texas shoot more movies and television shows – it’s why Atlanta has rightly been called the “Hollywood of the South.”
In 2013, alone, the following big-name productions shot in Atlanta: The Hunger Games franchise (starring Jennifer Lawrence), The Internship (Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn), Identity Thief (Melissa McCarthy), Anchorman: The Legend Continues (Will Ferrell), Last Vegas (Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas) and Dumb and Dumber To (Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels). Several major studio complexes are now being built to accommodate the burgeoning needs of the industry, including: the Atlanta Media Campus & Studios, a 5-million-square-foot complex that will feature six soundstages, classrooms, offices, and multifamily housing; Atlanta Metro Studios, whose first phase will include some 130,000 square feet of soundstages; Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta, a former beer warehouse; and Pinewood Atlanta Studios, a partnership between U.K.-based Pinewood (known for the James Bond flicks) and a local investment group.
At Bison Disc, we can’t say whether music or film is more important to us, or what we’re best known for. Let’s just say that, as a leading producer of CD and DVD duplication and packaging products and services, we’re equally important to our customers from either industry. Especially when they’re in the market for any of our high quality cases, jackets, sleeves, Digipaks, or custom packaging designs, up to and including box and collector sets. For both of the industries’ post-production needs, we like to think that we’re their “center of gravity.”
