    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."

    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.

    Brassland is an artist-operated label started in 2001 by Alec Hanley Bemis and twin brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner. We began with a pair of debuts by Clogs & The National, but our goal was to develop a community of creative folk, and the family has grown to include work by Nico Muhly, Buke & Gass, and Doveman among others. We like music that transcends genre. We encourage collaboration and creation among an evolving community of creative folks. We like musicians who play well and possess the elusive tonic of personality.

    Initially founded in 2002 as an offshoot of the celebrated Knitting Factory club in lower Manhattan, Knitting Factory Records, along with the new Knitting Factory club in Brooklyn, was reborn in 2009 with the acquisition and re-release of the Fela Kuti catalog. KFR also encompasses the catalogs of Instinct Records, Shadow Records, Shimmy Disc, and Evolver Records. In partnership with Partisan Records, a Brooklyn-based artist-run label, Knitting Factory Records strives to honor the music of an eclectic array of relevant artists drawn from both the past and the present. We think Fela said it best: “Music is the weapon. Music is the thing of the future. Music is the weapon of the future.”

    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. Music Theories Recently founded progressive rock label with bands like Flying Colors (Prog super group with Mike Portnoy and Steve Morse), Spock's Beard, Memories of Machines, etc. Music Theories is co-run with the German manager Michael Schmitz, one of the founders of Inside Out, one of the biggest Prog labels. Cool Green Recordings Recently founded alternative/indie label with Australian desert rockers Tracer, biggest Dutch alternative band De Staat, underground favorites Crippled Black Phoenix and the well-known cult band Masters Of Reality, featuring Chris Goss (co-writer/producer Kyuss /Queens Of the Stone Age).
