KSFM Airplay Brings HardNox To Blackground
April 25, 2008 at 6:35 AM (PT)
Who says radio airplay doesn't pack a punch when it comes to discovering new music? BLACKGROUND RECORDS has signed CONCORD, CA.-based HARDNOX and will release their first single "She'd Rather Be With The DJ" in the coming weeks.
BLACKGROUND SVP CHUCK FIELD told ALL ACCESS, "I noticed that KSFM was playing this song and I called (KSFM PD) BYRON KENNEDY about it. He told me he had huge phones. When I heard it, I said 'BK I hope you haven't told anyone about this because we're going to sign it immediately.' I called BLACKGROUND's JOMO HANKERSON about nine times and begged him to sign them immediately! He completely heard and saw the vision, and we are grateful that HARDNOX are now part of our family of great artists."
BARRY HANKERSON, JOMO HANKERSON and CHUCK FIELD will serve as Executive Producers of their upcoming album. HARDNOX is managed by JOHN CHRISTIAN's PIC HITZ.
