WARNER BROS. RECORDS has completed a multi-year global partnership with EMBLEM MUSIC GROUP. EMBLEM was founded by GRAMMY AWARD winner and former Chairman/CEO of VIRGIN RECORDS AMERICA MATT SERLETIC. The label is an evolution of MELISMA RECORDS, label home to GRAMMY AWARD winners MATCHBOX TWENTY and solo artist ROB THOMAS.
"I started EMBLEM to help select artists create truly great music and lasting careers," SERLETIC said. "By partnering EMBLEM's staff with the outstanding WARNER BROS. RECORDS team, we have created an ultra-competitive vehicle to achieve that vision."
"We're thrilled to partner with MATT and his team at EMBLEM," says WB Chairman/CEO TOM WHALLEY. "MATT is one of the industry's most versatile and accomplished producers and creative executives, having helped to cultivate the careers of a wide range of music's most successful artists. This proven ability makes him an ideal fit with WARNER BROS. and its commitment to long-term artist development and creative integrity."
