Grey's Anatomy Music Consultant Gets Own Record Label
March 29, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports that GREY'S ANATOMY has been selling us more than fantasies about the love lives of medical professionals. It has been selling a whole lot of popular music. How much? This much: It has spawned its own record label.
The sales surge this TV hit has given to songs like THE FRAY's "How to Save a Life" is a main reason that ALEXANDRA PATSAVAS, who assembles the show's music, has signed a deal with ATLANTIC RECORDS to create CHOP SHOP RECORDS.
Radio remains the primary avenue to break and expose most popular music, but in an age when music comes at us from more directions than ever -- PAUL MCCARTNEY signed to record his future music for STARBUCKS (NET NEWS 3/21) -- nothing gets instant national attention like prominent placement in a hit TV show.
