Record Label can become a significant growth vehicle. There is a considerable pool of talent in the Midwest. No
major record label is present in the area which has a population of 75 million within 5 hours drive. Have very close
ties to radio & club DJ’s, media personalities, concert and event promoters on the one side and ties to major
distribution on the other side puts the Record Label in the unique situation to attract, develop, promote and create a
significant demand and a fan base for recording artists. Even though Record Label is based in Chicago their sights
are aimed also outside the US music market (the label already produced a Brazilian samba/dance album and albums
for Japanese market). All of this is being done with highest artistic qualities and manageable expenditures. Record
Label has created a model and a development/production structure that enables it to have finished product and all
ancillary income streams at a very profitable cost basis. The key management has significant experience at upper-level management positions both at EMI and Universal coupled with their passion to create a success on the
independent level. Record label managed to build a team of individuals that not only have a superb professional skill
set but are true music lovers with the highest level of personal integrity.
