ROADRUNNER RECORDS has partnered with industry vet TOM LIPSKY to launch a joint venture label. LIPSKY was most recently Pres./CEO at SANCTUARY RECORDS GROUP/NORTH AMERICA.
ROADRUNNER RECORDS Pres. JONAS NACHSIN comments on the union, “TOM has had a distinguished career connecting with artists that have had a lasting impact on music culture. Pairing the world’s premier rock label with his vision is a winning combination.”
“My time will be dedicated primarily to the artists, supporting their creative activities and designing strategies to further their relationship with the consumer,” LIPSKY explains, “which is made possible by the resources that exist within ROADRUNNER. This is an opportunity that I am very excited about and I look forward to bringing important artists into this partnership.”
The label, as yet unnamed, will focus on new recordings by established classic rock artists. Worldwide distribution, marketing and licensing will be handled by ROADRUNNER. LIPSKY will work closely on all aspects of his artists.
