Original Signal Bio:
Original Signal redefines what it means to be an artist development company. We are a full-service record company, infused with a young dynamic energy, driven by a new, more artist-friendly philosophy. Focusing on innovation, artist growth, and true partnerships, we are a talented staff of music fans and professionals with a modern outlook. We are involved and invested in every aspect of our artists’ success, developing relationships with them as partners and expecting the same level of commitment in return.
We are a lean and specialized team, with each member playing a vital role. Forward thinking and inventive, we are excited about the future of the music industry. We’re not confused by technology; we embrace it. We’re no intimidated by change; we adapt to it. We’re passionate about innovation and new ways to get the music to the fans. We are also well-versed in traditional marketing strategies: our artists have had Top 20 radio hits, #1 videos on VH1, performances on late night and daytime TV shows, AOL sessions, MySpace premieres, feature placements on iTunes, and have graced the covers of major magazines. We’ve partnered with Universal Music to help expand our reach and artist services.
Founded by young entrepreneurs with a love of music, we’ve spent years working at companies like Warner Brothers Records, Atlantic Records, RED, Capitol Records, Artemis Records, nasty little man, Razor & Tie Entertainment and Girlie Action. Over our cumulative careers we’ve worked with amazing and diverse artists such as: The White Stripes, Radiohead, Beck, Beastie Boys, Kid Rock, Sigur Ros, Linkin Park, matchbox twenty, Tom Petty, The Mars Volta, Tori Amos, The Walkmen, M. Ward, Black Eyed Peas, Jewel, The Blood Brothers, Cursive, All That Remains, Margot and The Nuclear So & Sos, Steve Earle, Antony & The Johnsons, Angelique Kidjo, Ladytron, Morrissey, Bjork, My Morning Jacket, Warren Zevon, Brazilian Girls, Black Label Society, Puffy Ami Yumi, Ray LaMontagne, Rachel Yamagata, Carol King and many more.
Original Signal is home to a wide range of artists including: The Sounds, Butch Walker, The Bronx, Longwave, David Ford, Blanche and The Modern Society and has been distributing and marketing Ingrid Michaelson’s releases on her own Cabin 24 Records. We’re not looking to offer anybody a boilerplate record deal. We believe in shared responsibility. If we’re truly partners, we’ve both got a lot of work to do – and can share equally in the fruits of our labor – with the chance for great success.
