Toronto, ON (January 23, 2018) – Celebrating 10 years, MDM Recordings Inc. is pleased to announce it is scaling up its recorded music operations internationally with dedicated distribution and partner services globally for the first time.
The development comes via an innovative partnership with leading edge technology centric company FUGA, that specializes in building smart industry-predictive solutions and offers a variety of services to some of the world’s leading independent labels. Additionally, MDM is happy to enter into an inventive partnership with Zooby Media’s Adria DeLaune, who will represent the label and its robust roster in Nashville.
Mike Denney said, “In an ever-changing musical landscape in which we proudly celebrate our 10 year anniversary this year, we recognize more than ever before that it has become an industry without borders. It is both exciting and crucial for us to partner with those that are forward-thinking and results driven in order to grow and strengthen our business globally. We are thrilled to be working with Adria at Zooby Media in Nashville as well as the exemplary team at FUGA and look forward to building a strong recordings business for the MDM label and its artist roster around the world.”
“It’s an honour and a privilege to be working with the MDM family,” says DeLaune. “Mike Denney and his team have a decade long track record of representing some of the best talent in the industry and I am so excited to be a part of creating a multi-national platform for these exceptional artists by representing MDM in Nashville.”
The move demonstrates MDM’s commitment to the fast-growing international market and the opportunities that exist for its talented roster of artists that includes: 2017 JUNO Award winner and 3x CCMA Award winner for Female Artist of the Year, Jess Moskaluke, CCMA Award winner Bobby Wills, along with rising stars, David James, Leaving Thomas and The Lovelocks.
The alliance with both FUGA and DeLaune will support MDM artists globally, help discover new opportunities for success and also enable MDM to optimize sales from its growing stable of artists internationally.
