14. Record Label Research

Hollywood Records is an American record label focusing on pop, rock, alternative and teen pop genres. It was founded in 1989 by Michael Eisner and is one of the major Disney Music Group labels. Its current notable artists include QueenPlain White T's, and Breaking BenjaminZZ Ward. Also newcomers such as Lucy Hale, Valora, Cherri BombBeatrice MillerStefano Langone, Coco Jones, McClain Sisters, and also Disney Channel stars such as Selena Gomez & The Scene,Demi LovatoR5Bridgit Mendler,Zendaya, and Bella Thorne. Hollywood Records parent company is ‘Disney Music Group' and they are located in Burbank, California. I think that this record label would be good due to the fact that it has a number of famous pop artists. Hollywood Records is a record label that represents youth and the younger generation due to the large number of young artists that it represents and so I think it would be a perfect record label as all members of our group are teenagers and therefore can relate to the music that teenagers listen to which is the the type of music that the artists of Hollywood records create.

Syco Music, also known as Syco Records, is a British record label founded by Simon Cowell in 2002. It is a subsidiary of Syco Entertainment. It's parent company is Sony Music Entertainment. Syco Music has offices in London and Los Angeles and is home to several artists and has the exclusive right to sign winners and finalists of The X Factor and Got Talent. Some of the current artisits are Leona Lewis, Olly Murs, Rebecca Ferguson, One Direction  Cher Lloyd, Susan Boyle and Labrinth. This record label would be ideal for a pop music video due to the fact that it represents a number of famous pop artists.         


Fascination Records is a UK-based record label, owned by Universal Music Group, and operated as an imprint of Polydor Records. The label was launched in spring 2006, and is managed by former TOTP Magazine editor, Peter Loraine. It concentrates on a relatively small number of pop acts including Girls Aloud, Cheryl Cole, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Kimberley Walsh and The Saturdays.  This record label would be ideal if we chose a female pop artist song due to the fact that it represents mostly females.
