Imagem Music Signs The Indiggo Twins
Imagem Music, a division of the Imagem Music Group and home to such talent as Ludacris, Anna Nalick, Phil Collins, Genesis, Steve Robson, French Horn Rebellion, and The Temper Trap, has signed a worldwide, multi-year co-publishing /grand rights agreement with singer/songwriter twin sisters, Mihaela and Gabriela Modorcea p/k/a INDIGGO.
The sisters were most recently featured on the highly anticipated Jay-Z and Kanye West album, Watch the Throne. The twins are also in the process of developing their own television show and musical with DAS and ISH TV. Under the guidance of David Sonenberg of DAS Communications (Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, John Legend, Meat Loaf), they have been writing and producing their soon to-be-released album, working with the likes of Peter Zizzo (Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne), Rockwilder (Christina Aguilera), DJ Paul Oakenfold (Madonna), and Swizz Beatz (Beyonce, Jay-Z).
"Mihaela and Gabriella are two of the most hardworking, passionate artists I have ever met," commented Richard Stumpf, President of Imagem Music USA. "It doesn't surprise me that their talent and drive were recognized by Swizz, Jay-Z, and Kanye when they opted to use them on the Watch the Throne album. The girls are a triple threat as writers, artists and actresses. We are all excited for their upcoming musical and TV show."
"The girls are the real deal," says Sonenberg. "And did you know that they are real Vampires too? Imagine Dark Shadows meets Cabaret and you will start to get the picture. When their TV show hits the airwaves and their album hits the streets, they are going to be unstoppable!"
The Indiggo Twins say: "We really feel that destiny has ‘twinned' us with Rich Stumpf and Imagem Music. Rich is our third twin -- not only because we share the same birthday (June 7th), but because he has already performed wonders since we met and signed. With Rich we reached Kanye and Jay-Z's Throne. Rich Stumpf/Imagem Music and David Sonenberg/DAS are a great team - street fighters, big-hearted, who show great enthusiasm for what we do as Artists."
