ROYALTY NETWORK PUBLISHING LAUNCHES
NEW RECORD LABEL, KRIAN MUSIC GROUP
The Ettes, VHS or Beta, Richie Loop and Buck$ Among Initial Signings
New York, New York – The Royalty Network, one of the top independent publishing companies in the US, announces the launch of the record label, Krian Music Group. The new label, based in New York City, is launching with deals in place with indie rockers The Ettes and VHS or BETA as well as the Hip Hop artist Buck$ and pop/R&B sensation Richie Loop.
Krian Music Group, founded by Royalty Network President Frank Liwall, will offer full label services, including A&R, digital and traditional marketing, PR, radio promotion, and physical distribution by Universal/Fontana.
The record label’s initial focus is to sign artists with proven publishing success and seek to further develop these artists utilizing the resources provided by both the label and publishing companies.
“We looked at artists we had been publishing, with successful film and television licensing histories, and realized a number of great acts were without a label home. Krian Music Group was created to further maximize these artists’ successes and provide a solid foundation for their growth,” says Krian Music Group and Royalty Network President, Frank Liwall.
A few recent film and television placements for Krian Music Group artists include, The Ettes song “I Heard Tell”, currently airing KOTEX commercial and Buck$ song “Bounce” for the CBS television series Blue Bloods and TNT television series Franklin & Bash.
Additional Royalty Network licenses featured have been Outkast’s “So Fresh So Clean” for Fox’s American Dad, Studio B song “I See Girls” in the new TIDE commercial, Blackroc’s “What You Do to Me” for Zales, MIA’s “Jimmy” for Xbox game Kinect Sport 2 and Pitbull featuring Afrojack’s “Give Me Everything” for ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
Upcoming releases include The Ettes this August and VHS or BETA this coming September. Krian Music Group will seek to expand their roster over the course of the next year as well.
