Essential Music & Marketing Signs Off Successful 2012 With New Artist And Label Announcements

Bookmark and Share
Following a hugely successful year to date, the UK-based Essential Music & Marketing have completed a raft of new label and artist signings.

First off, an exclusive European distribution deal with US heavy rock label Sumerian Records. This will see Essential getting to work on an eagerly-awaited new album from Kerrang! cover stars Asking Alexandria (due 2013) as well as the full-length debut from Australian metalcore five-piece Capture The Crown, titled Til Death (due January 14th).

Building on their considerable online presence (including 5m YouTube views for their debut single) the band are already famed for their work ethic and play more than 40 dates on their current North American tour.

Moving into 2013, Essential is also delighted to announce an world Ex-North America distribution deal with hip hop legend RZA and his Soul Temple imprint. Headed by Bob Frank, former President of E1, and the producer Bob Perry, Soul Temple will release new albums next year from Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killa and Joell Ortiz.

Other significant releases include the 12th studio album from Canadian legends The Tragically Hip (Now For Plan A, out now on Zo Records/Rounder); the first album in 17 years from Adam Ant (due January 2013 on BlueBlack Hussar); Fatboy Slim's Big Beach Bootique 5 (due Q1 2013 on The End Records); and All The Little Lights by Passenger (on Nettwerk). Passenger, aka Brighton-based singer-songwriter Mike Rosenberg, has already charted in Austria and Holland recently supported Ed Sheeran on UK and European tour dates.

This activity follows a run of global successes for US artists working with Essential, including a Top 20 UK album for Marilyn Manson, as well as releases for Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra, Allah-Las, Bad Brains, Nick Waterhouse and Chris Robinson Brotherhood.

Additionally, Essential has recently signed deals with a variety of labels including Wall Of Sound and Razor & Tie. In October, the organisation launched CV America, a new operation that will streamline the group's extensive US activities.

Mike Chadwick, Managing Director of Essential said: "We finish 2012 as we mean to go on: signing talent, supporting some of the world's best independent labels and providing the widest range of services from marketing to distribution. Essential is a true 21st Century music company. Every artist or label we work with receives bespoke treatment on a local and global basis, and we continue to grow from strength to strength."

Erik Gilbert, head of CV America, added: "In 2012, we made incredible strides to become one of the leading UK and European partners for North American labels and artists. We provide our clients with a truly forward thinking operation; as partners, we not only help build their business, we provide the space to nurture innovation and creativity. 2013 is going to be an amazing year, and we can't wait to get started!"
