Shield Records, a multi-genre label, was created to give local, national and international recording artists the opportunity to showcase their talents to the rest of the world, whilst providing music enthusiasts worldwide with fresh new sounds and artists. Founded by partners Mr. Devon Chapman and Miss Victoria Gladders, Shield Records in its first few weeks has already signed 15 artists to its roster and released 2 new singles, with many more in the pipeline.
Shield distributes and promotes its artists’ music to over 300 major music retailers, including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox and Last.fm, and offers all the same opportunities and promotional strategies as existing major labels.
Victoria Gladders, Chief Operating Officer of the company said: “The launch of Shield Records has been an exciting and fantastic opportunity;
The company is part of a larger offshore conglomerate, Shield Corporation, and already has a London-based office and hundreds of contacts in the music industry, with plans to sign another 30 artists to the label in the next month or so.
Devon Chapman, Chief Executive Officer at Shield Records said: “The first month at Shield Records has been an exciting one. We already have some fantastic artists on board and have many more to potentially be signed. It’s great to see young adult artists in the community finally getting the chance to get their name out there and be given the same opportunities as famous recording artists. Knowing we can inspire those people as well as our listeners is a great feeling, and there are some huge plans for Shield Records yet to come.”
Shield Records already has plans to expand into television, radio and mobile apps in 2015, as well as release an album featuring its biggest artists later this year. Anyone wishing to be given a chance to sign with the label should send a high-quality demo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
