Clear Channel Announces Revenue Sharing Deal With Suburban Noize
September 10, 2013
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment and indie music label Suburban Noize Records have announced an agreement that will enable Suburban Noize artists to share in broadcast and digital revenue.
Suburban Noize was founded in 1995 in Los Angeles, CA, and has since worked to promote underground artists and their unique styles around the world. The label is now home to a catalog of thousands of original songs by artists including Madchild -- whose last release debuted #2 on the Canadian music charts -- and Big B, who just released his new album, Fool’s Gold, featuring a song co-written by the Dirty Heads. Kevin Zinger, who currently serves as co-owner and CEO of Suburban Noize, also owns Regime Management and SRH clothing.
"Throughout my career I have worked to help break up-and-coming underground artists," said Zinger. "I want to do what I can to develop our artists’ careers and to make their music accessible to their fans around the world, and this agreement with Clear Channel helps me do that."
"Suburban Noize is dedicated to supporting and promoting its wide range of artists," said Bob Pittman, CEO of Clear Channel. "We are proud to partner with them to help their musicians reach fans through broadcast and digital radio. This revenue-sharing model is the future of the music industry and will benefit everyone from artists to labels to fans for years to come."
Clear Channel has also formed similar partnerships with other labels, including Big Machine Label Group, GlassnoteEntertainment Group, eOne, Dualtone, DashGo, rpm Entertainment, Robbins Entertainment, Naxos, Wind-up Records, Fearless Records, Dualtone Music Group and Zojak World Wide.
