Radio promotion company CO5 MUSIC and independent label group MEROVINGIAN MUSIC LTD. announced a new label joint venture with distribution through EMI/CAROLINE. The partnership will include releases from MEROVINGIAN’s current roster of artists and upcoming signings to the newly formed entity.
The combined company’s first release, in conjunction with LOS ANGELES-based FOODCHAIN RECORDS, will be SUPAGROUP, which impacts rock formats next month.
MEROVINGIAN President JACK PONTI said, "We are thrilled and honored to extend our longstanding relationship with CO5 into a fully functioning label venture. As evidenced by recent successes, the application of commercial radio remains a vital and important component of the growth of major and independent records alike. This is an exciting time when new models are being developed and launched daily. We now have the ability to offer the highly honed skills of CO5 to our existing services. This partnership allows us infinite growth and possibilities."
"CO5 MUSIC is excited to partner with industry legend JACK PONTI and his company MEROVINGIAN RECORDS," commented CO5 co-owner TRACY BROWN. "JACK has been a pioneer throughout his career writing, producing and managing which has led to his tremendous success."
CO5 MUSIC co-owner TODD SIEVERS added,"Through joint venture releases our two companies can offer label services on par with the majors bypassing all the red tape therefore allowing decisions to be made quickly and efficiently. This potent combination of EMI distribution, MEROVINGIAN marketing and CO5 MUSIC radio promotion puts our clients in a position to win in today's climate. This is the future model of the music industry."
