CCM+E Inks Revenue Sharing Deal With Fearless Records
June 3, 2013

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has announced its latest revenue sharing deal with Rock label Fearless Records. The agreement will allow Fearless Recordsí artists to receive revenue from play on Clear Channelís digital and broadcast radio stations.

Fearless Records, founded in 1994, first gained recognition for helping to launch the careers of popular rock bands such as Plain White Tís, At The Drive-In and The Aquabats!, and has since represented a diverse array of rock groups including Breathe Carolina, Mayday Parade, Eve 6, Piece The Veil, and The Summer Set. The label, based in Huntington Beach, CA, is also known for its annual series of compilation albums titled Punk GoesÖ, which feature bands such as The All-American Rejects, Rise Against, and Yellowcard playing covers of songs outside their usual genres of music.

"Fearless has helped numerous musicians build their careers, helping them become prominent names in rock music. But without radio play, none of it would have been possible," said Fearless Records President Bob Becker. "Radio is where we introduced these successful artists to their fans and where fans go to discover new music from the bands they love, and we look forward to breaking more rock artists with the help of Clear Channel, on both broadcast radio and digitally, in the future."

"These market-based partnerships with record labels are part of Clear Channelís efforts to help build a sustainable business model for Internet radio," said Bob Pittman, CEO of Clear Channel. "We want to make sure that our fans can listen to the music they want whenever and wherever they want it. Fearless has helped launch the careers of a number of successful artists and we are excited to partner with them to continue to help listeners discover new music through the power of radio, whether on-air or online."

Clear Channelís agreement with Fearless follows several recent similar agreements, including Big Machine Label Group, Glassnote Entertainment Group, DashGo, rpm Entertainment, Robbins Entertainment, Naxos and Wind-up Records.
