Celebrating 10 years, MDM Recordings Inc. is scaling up its music operations internationally with dedicated distribution and partner services globally for the first time, company founder Mike Denney reports.
The expansion comes through a partnership with Amsterdam-based technology and services company FUGA that works with a number of leading independent labels such as Epitaph and a broad range of digital service providers such as Spotify, YouTube and iTunes.
Additionally, MDM has partnered with creative shop Zooby Media’s Adria DeLaune, who will represent the label and its roster in Nashville.
“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,” Denney says. “It is both exciting and crucial for us to partner with those that are forward-thinking and results driven to grow and strengthen our business globally.”
“Mike Denney and his team have a decade-long track record of representing some of the best talents 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,” DeLaune adds.
The move, Denney explains, “demonstrates MDM’s commitment to the fast-growing international market and the opportunities that exist for our talented roster of artists.” Included here is Jess Moskaluke, a 2017 Juno winner and CCMA Female Artist of the Year for the past three years; CCMA Award winner Bobby Wills; and rising stars, David James, Leaving Thomas and The Lovelocks.
Denney was named Record Person of the Year at the CCMA Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2017, and MDM Recordings was named Record Company of the Year at the CCMA Awards in 2015 and 2016.
