EMILIO and GLORIA ESTEFAN's daughter EMILY ESTEFAN has struck a deal with RED DISTRIBUTION for her ALIEN SHRIMP RECORDS label which encompasses physical and digital distribution throughout the U.S. and CANADA, as well as worldwide digital distribution, for its entire roster.
EMILY founded the label in the hopes that it would not only be a home for her original music, but also a place for new and emerging artists to thrive and truly express themselves creatively. ESTEFAN earned a degree in contemporary writing and production from BOSTON's prestigious BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC.
"I, and all at RED DISTRIBUTION /'STACHE MEDIA, are thrilled to join forces with the ALIEN SHRIMP RECORDS team," RED DISTRIBUTION Pres. BOB MORELLI said. "EMILY is an incredibly talented musician and we're excited for this new partnership,"
"A home should support who you truly are, not shape you to be what others want you to be," EMILY said. "I am beyond thrilled to call SONY/RED DISTRIBUTION my new musical home. They took on this little ALIEN SHRIMP with no questions asked, and opened the door to my U.F.O."
The first offering of the newly signed deal is the debut album from singer, songwriter and producer, EMILY ESTEFAN, slated for release in early 2017. The album's first single, "Reigns (Every Night)," is set to release in late-SEPTEMBER. In 2015, her first original track and video "F#ck To Be," celebrating her individuality and the importance of not conforming to society's expectations, premiered on "Entertainment Tonight," followed by another original song, "I Just Want It To Be Over," which she performed at MIAMI BEACH's 100th Birthday Celebration and was featured on "The Today Show." Growing up surrounded by music,EMILY performed for the first time on stage at the age of eight -- on her mother's world tour.
