Merovingian Music, Ltd. has announced the signing of a joint venture between MRV and Sebastian Bach's Get Off My Bach Productions to launch a yet-to-be-named label owned by the artist.
MRV is part of, and is distributed exclusively, by the Caroline/EMI Music Group.
MRV's model is designed specifically for artist-owned, management-owned and independent labels, creating a partnership that provides for all label functions.
MRV CEO Jack Ponti states: "Sebastian Bach has proven himself to be a true multimedia star of music, stage and television. He has delivered a record of incredible depth and intensity that displays his growth as an artist. We look forward with eager anticipation to this journey together and are honored to be part of it."
William Hein, Senior Vice President/General Manager Caroline Music Group/EMI, adds: "Sebastian Bach has recorded a fantastic new album and Caroline Music is thrilled to be working with Merovingian on its release. Sebastian is the real deal and 'Angel Down' will be the rock comeback story of the year."
Sebastian Bach comments: "I am thrilled to be a part of the MRV/Caroline/EMI Music Group. I have known Jack Ponti for 20 years and am totally excited to be 'parters in crime' with such a trusted, talented guy as Jack and the whole MRV team.
"When my manager Rick Sales sent my new CD 'Angel Down' to Jason Flom at EMI, Jason immediately sent it to Jack and together we now have a team that I am supremely confident will be able to get my music out to the people! To have my own label together with Merovingian/Caroline/EMI is truly a dream come true.
"We look forward to a tentative October 2007 release for the new CD 'Angel Down'.
"I would like to thank Rick Sales, Jason Flom, and Jack Ponti for coming through for me!
"I am very proud of the CD and am honored to be working with such an incredible team!"
