    Scott Borchetta founded independent label Big Machine Records in September 2005 and serves as its President/CEO. In its first year Big Machine scored its first #1 single (Jack Ingram’s “Wherever You Are”), placed five singles in the Country Top 30, received a nomination for Record Label of the Year, and placed all three of the label's three new artist releases in the Top 10 Most-Played New Artists of 2006 (as monitored by Mediabase and reported by USA Today and Country Aircheck). Big Machine’s signature artist Taylor Swift (the CMA and AP’s reigning Entertainer of the Year and the American Music Awards’ 2009 Artist of the Year) was the best-selling all-genre artist of 2008 and her current album, Fearless, repeated her success when it became 2009’s highest-selling album of the year across all genres. Fearless - the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music and American Music Awards’ 2009 Country Album of the Year - has spent more weeks at #1 atop the Billboard Top Album chart than any other album in the last 10 years with an astounding 11 weeks at #1. Taylor re-wrote the record books when her worldwide smash single "Love Story" became the first ever Country crossover single to hit #1 on the Billboard and USA Today Top 40 airplay charts. Her follow-up single, “You Belong With Me,” repeated the same feat. Big Machine Records, was Billboard’s #1 Top Country Album Imprint of 2009, decorating it as the highest-selling record label group on Music Row. In 2009, Big Machine partnered with Universal Republic to create Republic Nashville. The Big Machine Label Group’s current artist roster includes Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Jewel, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, Jack Ingram, Justin Moore, Steel Magnolia, The Band Perry, Edens Edge, Eli Young Band and Sunny Sweeney. In 4 years, Big Machine Records artists have received 6 Country Music Association Awards, 6 American Music Awards, 4 Academy of Country Music Awards, 4 CMT Music Awards, 3 Teen Choice Awards, 1 MTV Video Music Award as well as 13 GRAMMY Nominations and 5 People’s Choice Award Nominations.

    Big Picnic Records, distributed by Sony/RED, launched in 2013. The label has a strategic relationship with Paradigm Talent Agency. Paradigm's Marty Diamond will provide A&R support to label general manager Patti Hauseman. Big Picnic's first release was the Shoestring EP by British singer/songwriter WALL on April 2, 2013. Influenced by artists such as St Vincent and Patti Smith, WALL takes her lead from women with a strong sense of identity. Favoring rudimentary recording equipment over state-of-the-art studios, WALL creates sparse soundscapes, with only muted bass lines and scattered keyboards to frame her voice. Pitchfork said of the EP's title track, "'Shoestring' feels like having a necessarily intimate conversation in a busy public place: there may be bigger and louder things going on elsewhere, but right now hearing what Wall has to say is the only thing that matters." Big Picnic's initial roster also includes Foxes and JOHNNYSWIM. Foxes is the alter ego of the London-based singer and musician Louisa Rose Allen. Her debut single "Youth," with its resplendent synths, industrial percussion and by turns searing and soaring vocal, garnered more than two million combined Soundcloud and YouTube plays, and 13,000 Hypemachine 'likes,' plus synchs on CW's "Gossip Girl." She followed it up with the "Warrior" EP in the summer of 2012, and is the featured vocalist on Zedd's fast-rising EDM single "Clarity." JOHNNYSWIM is the Los Angeles duo of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez. The two began writing and singing together in 2006 and found that their similar influences of folk, soul, and rock blended together lusciously. Nashville's daily newspaper, The Tennessean, describes JOHNNYSWIM as "a mix of Lauryn Hill and John Mayer."

    Once upon a time there was a teenage rocker named Joan Jett. She was making rock and roll history in a teenage group called The Runaways. When that band broke up, she met hit songwriter/producer Kenny Laguna. They saw in each other a kindred spirit and set about to work together. Kenny thought she was great, and expected no problem convincing record labels to put out the record they had just finished. But he was wrong; Joan Jett was rejected by 23 labels. They turned down "Bad Reputation". They turned down " Do You Wanna Touch Me". They could not hear the potential of " I Love Rock n' Roll" or "Crimson and Clover". So Joan and Kenny decided to start their own record company, manufacture their own records, and sell them...sometimes from the trunk of Kenny’s Cadillac. Blackheart Records was born and Joan Jett became the first woman in rock and roll to own her own record company. Blackheart Records is currently home to such up-and-coming groups as San Antonio-based female threesome Girl In A Coma (Both Before I'm Gone, Trio B.C., Adventures in Coverland) and Los Angeles' pop-punk trio the Dollyrots (Because I'm Awesome) and of course Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The label’s catalog includes The Vacancies, The Cute Lepers, The Eyeliners and more, while continuing to add new artists to its roster.

    Since 1994, Bloodshot Records has championed music that lurks between genres; the good stuff nestled in the dark, nebulous cracks where punk, country, soul, pop, bluegrass, blues and rock mix and mingle and mutate. Bloodshot artists work over American roots forms with chains and velvet gloves with little regard for formality or protocol; they aren't afraid to molest and caress these forms to take music into uncharted and exciting waters. Bloodshot and it's artists share a punk/DIY ethic of expression. Bloodshot's artist roster includes: Bobby Bare Jr., Detroit Cobras, Scott H. Biram, The Bottle Rockets, Deadstring Brothers, Gore Gore Girls, Wayne Hancock, Graham Parker, The Silos, Waco Brothers, and Wee Hairy Beasties. From Bloodshot's shabby offices on a bleak stretch of the Northwest Side of Chicago, the label forges ahead in an environment hostile to the little guy, keeping its steel-toed boot on the throats of the forces responsible for the free fall decline of the contemporary music scene.

Records, Seymour Stein reformed Blue Horizon Records. “Our first signing, the Austin based psychedelic band, Black Angels was released this past Autumn and is off to a great start, having entered at number 50 on the Billboard Charts”. “These are the things: developing new markets and taking chances early on with new artists are what I feel are most important and actively supporting these two causes is how I would most like to spend the remainder of my days in the music business, however long that may be.” The label is also looking to sign and record new artists to help keep the blues alive.

    Ann Arbor, Michigan's Ghostly International was created in 1999 by Sam Valenti IV from a dorm room. Since then, the label has become one of America's premier channels for forward-thinking music, releasing music from artists like Matthew Dear, Dabrye, Mobius Band, Solvent and Christopher Willits. From Indie to Hip-Hop, Electro to Ambient, Ghostly celebrates a diversity of styles that run the electronic gamut.
    Ghostly works to emphasize the artist behind the machines, the personalities that drive this music. Through its release history, including the acclaimed Disco Nouveau and Idol Tryouts compilations, the label has received praise from critics and music buyers alike including the annual "Hot Label" nod from Rolling Stone. Ghostly International and its dancefloor counterpart label, Spectral Sound, stay true to their art historical roots, focusing on a strong visual presence and an eye for the smallest detail.

    Spectral Sound, dance music counterpart to Ghostly International, began as an outlet for DJ singles from a then-unknown Matthew Dear. Spectral focuses on music with its roots in Midwestern dance culture, namely Detroit and Chicago with a stylistic focus on innovative and compelling techno and house. Other chief artists from the origin in 2000 included area artists Osborne and James T. Cotton whose various singles and EPs have proved the importance and vitality of the North American techno scene. The Spectral landscape has grown beyond its Midwestern roots to include such international artists as Pär Grindvik (Sweden), Daso (Germany), Sami Koivikko (Finland) and Jonas Kopp (Argentina). In 2008, the label also signed Chicago's Kate Simko and Berlin-by-way-of-Detroit artist, Seth Troxler.

    Manifesto Records has released music from a celebrated list of artists. Although it was founded in 1993, Manifesto is the successor to indie labels dating back to 1968, beginning as Bizarre Records (and its companion label, Straight Records). Over the next several years, Bizarre signed artists such as Alice Cooper, Tim Buckley, Captain Beefheart, Ted Nugent, Wild Man Fischer, and others. Later, a third label, Discreet, was added, and the labels released albums until 1975. In 1988, the reactivated Bizarre/Straight reissued albums by Tim Buckley, Alice Cooper, The GTOs, Lord Buckley, Captain Beefheart, and others. In 1994, in addition to the core albums by Tom Waits (his earliest recordings, released as The Early Years Volumes 1 and 2), and six albums from Tim Buckley, Manifesto began to release new albums and re-issues, including albums by The Wedding Present, and, later, Cinerama, and other British bands like Sing-Sing and ballboy, tribute albums to Tom Waits and Tim Buckley, and the reunion album of Concrete Blonde, Lilys and Cranes. In 2005, The Wedding Present re-formed and Manifesto released the well-received Take Fountain, and later, El Rey. In 2001, Manifesto re-issued one of the most important catalogues in punk rock history — five albums by Dead Kennedys. Later, another live album was released, and in 2005 Manifesto also released Dead Kennedys’ first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, in both an original version and a new package with a new documentary DVD entitled Fresh Fruit for Rotting Eyeballs. With these last releases, the entire Dead Kennedys catalogue is now on Manifesto. In 2014, Manifesto has released a box set of 7’ vinyl singles, the Dead Kennedys Original Singles Collection. In 2009, Manifesto became the home of the imprint for The Turtles, called FloEdCo. We have released The Turtles’ Save The Turtles: The Turtles’ Greatest Hits; vinyl re-issues of It Ain’t Me Babe and Happy Together; and three albums by Flo & Eddie. Manifesto Records will continue to release and re-issue quality recordings in the future. Please review our catalogue pages to see what is currently available. Manifesto is distributed by eOne Distribution in the U.S. and Canada, and by Proper Music Group in the UK, and H’ART Musikvertrieb for Europe.

    Formed in 1990 originally under the name Mascot Records, and then Mascot-Provogue in 1999, the Mascot Label group has always maintained a dedication to integrity and success. After adapting the name, Mascot Label Group in 2010, the organization has been the umbrella label for the following four record companies: Mascot Rock label with artists like Volbeat, Gojira, Black Country Communion, Black Label Society, and even intergalactic superstar Bootsy Collins. Mascot Records is proud to have brought Volbeat to success from scratch starting in Europe. Thanks to several focused campaigns Mascot was able to achieve over 10 platinum and gold records. Their attendance at headlining shows went from under 100 to 10,000 people in just 3 years. Mascot=92s success was not limited to Europe, as we also brought them from infancy to over 100,000 records sold and over 500,000 tracks digital in America, selling well over 1,000,000 records in worldwide. In June 2012 we reached number 1 rock album chart entry in UK with our band Black Country Communion, as well as top chart positions in 10 European countries. Provogue Leading blues/rock label with Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Gov=92t Mule, Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Walter Trout, Jonny Lang, Leslie West and Robert Cray. Provogue prides itself on farm raising international blues icon, Joe Bonamassa from the ground up. Perhaps the most humbling tale of success is remembering that Joe had been playing for 50 people in London in 2007 only to turn around and sell out the Royal Albert Hall (5,000 capacity) in 6 minutes in 2009. Additionally, Bonamassa has collectively sold over 1,000,000 albums in Europe and charting the last 8 records in at least 10 countries. In May 2012 Joe Bonamassa latest studio album charted nr 2 in the overall album charts in the UK.
