After working side-by-side as separate entities in the flourishing UK Country and Americana scene, they are joining forces to support their shared roster.
w21Records is launching with a closed roster of five artists and has built the services it will offer around them.
They are US based singer songwriter Brian Collins and UK Americana artist Paul Carella, both long-time collaborators with w21Music Group, and three artists managed by Donna Zanetti of ZimagineD: Singer-songwriter Kezia Gill; Americana artist Emilia Quinn Music (UK), and Nashville-based Country Artist Audra McLaughlin.
Pete Woodhouse and Donna Zanetti said “This label has been built to service our existing artist roster to give them a truly bespoke in-house team. Nurturing and developing artists careers to the point where they are attracting the attention of major labels is what w21Records is all about. We want to be a stepping stone on the journey, an indie artist’s gateway to a major label deal.”
The first single to be released on the label will be Brian Collins’ ‘When The Sun Gets In Your Eyes’ on 7th October. Closely followed by Kezia Gill with ‘Like I Did Before’ on 21st October.
