Indie label SHANACHIE ENTERTAINMENT has relaunched shanachie.com, coinciding with the companies "ever-evolving new initiative in the alternative music realm."
"It's been a long time coming," said SVP/Sales, Marketing/Digital RICK ROSENBERG. "We've known for quite a while that we needed and wanted to develop an enhanced site. However we weren't interested in just a refreshing of our current site. That would have been easy but ineffective. With things changing so fast, we wanted to ensure that we put forth a website that truly represents what SHANACHIE is today without limiting us going forward. I believe we've done just that with the new shanachie.com."
ROSENBERG added, "We've always had such great support from our selling partners. We value and appreciate that support and want to do our part to ensure that the model continues to thrive. With that in mind, every active SHANACHIE title on our new site has a direct click through to listen to and purchase at AMAZON.com and iTUNES."
"We're truly independent," said SHANACHIE GM RANDALL GRASS, who joined the company in 1981. "No major label owns any part of us, and we're with truly independent distribution as well. We try to be an independent that functions in between the major label complexes and the more grassroots independents. We have a bigger catalog and more resources than most indies, but we don't play the pop-music game -- we don't see how many records we can put out, and hope that maybe a few will make it. We have the ability to develop artists and be a true home for them throughout their careers."
SHANACHIE has announced its first Alternative Rock signing is the FLOBOTS.
