Three Six Zero Group Launches Record Label & Music Publishing Division
International entertainment company Three Six Zero Group has expanded its services for artists, teaming with Warner/Chappell Music (WCM) to imprint Three Six Zero Publishing, a publishing division for collaboratively signing and cultivating talented songwriters, and with Warner Bros. Records (WBR) to imprint Three Six Zero Music, a new record label for collaboratively signing and cultivating recording artists, spanning a range of genres. The label launches with electronic music act GTA, Australian DJ/production duo Cut Snake, and singer/songwriter Anabel Englund.
"Three Six Zero Group is a place where artists can develop and grow with support from all areas of our business," said company co-founder Mark Gillespie. "Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music are powerhouses in contemporary music. There's no better group to team with as we look at new ways to blend genres and help developing artists break through and established artists cross over." Co-founder Dean Wilson added, "We're extending our services with collaborations like these to give artists as many opportunities as possible to let their music and talent reach full potential."
Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music, added, "By bringing together Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell with Three Six Zero, we're creating a full service music company for exciting new artists. Dean Wilson and Mark Gillespie have swiftly established their company as a creative force and we're excited to work with them."
Three Six Zero Group co-founders Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson will head A&R for the Three Six Zero Music label, while Jessica Wilson, VP of Music, will head day to day operations. She joined Three Six Zero Group in 2011 from Ultra Records, where she served as Director of Marketing.
The uniquely close relationship between WBR and WCM, with Cameron Strang heading both Warner Music Group companies, fosters dynamic synergy and swift collaboration with Three Six Zero. The innovative arrangement enables a variety of custom-tailored opportunities for artists and songwriters across multiple platforms and incorporates flexibility whereby they may be signed to record deals through WBR, publishing deals with WCM, or both.
The Three Six Zero Music label launches with three acts on board worldwide. Los Angeles based DJ/production duo GTA (Julio Mejia and Matt Toth) live by the philosophy: 'death to genres.' Their Miami roots exposed them to urban, electronic rock and Latin sounds in equal measure and their sets are known for being wild, unpredictable, and ultra high-energy. GTA released their collaboration with Juyen Sebulba as their first single, Hard House, on the Three Six Zero Music label June 16. GTA has also joined the Three Six Zero management roster. Australian producers and DJ duo Cut Snake(Paul Fisher and Leigh Sedley) came off the pro surfing tour to tear it up as a house music act, signing with Three Six Zero management in 2013. A tour and music releases are in the works. Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Anabel Englund has released music and performed live with British-American electronic music group Hot Natured at festivals including Glastonbury, Sonar, Eastern Electrics, Bestival, and more. The song "Electricity," Englund's collaboration with producers Mark Kinchen and Lee Foss, brought her into the spotlight of deep house music, with the next three singles from Hot Natured all featuring her vocal and songwriting collaborations.
