  1. I agree that Warner Bros. profile is rising, with Bruno Mars and Wiz on their roster. They’ve just had a really difficult couple of years, financially, and I don’t want Alex on a label that might go bankrupt. In the movie biz, when movie studios get in trouble, their movies sit on the shelf for years, without distribution. Likewise in the record biz, if you can’t give your artists the financial backing they deserve, they languish with unpublished music. Maybe some of the sub-labels, like Atlantic and Elektra are doing better, and are separate cost centers, but I wouldn’t want Alex on the Warner Bros label directly.

    @Lauren, interesting about Pete Ganbarg. Sorry, don’t have time to read it right now, (off to work-boo!) but I’m confused. Train is on Columbia Records, which is part of Sony, so how is he involved with Pat Monahan? Kara makes sense at Warner, because I think she helped bring Jason Derulo on board (he’s on Warner Bros, and I think they did a bad job of pushing his CD–maybe it’s no good–lol)

    ETA: OK, sped-read through intro, he was indie before, now moved to Atlantic. Sounds good to me!

  2. @Diane – ALL the labels are having trouble. So it makes no difference where Alex lands.

    And Warner Music Group is the umbrella company which has dozens of labels under it like Atlantic and Elektra (which are under the Atlantic Record Groups umbrella). Atlantic also has B.O.B., Flo Rida, T.I., Paolo Nutini, Zac Brown Band, Jason Mraz, it’s home of Diddy’s Bad Boy Records and Jason Castro. There are a lot of really great artists there.

    I’m gonna venture out and make an official guess – Alex is signed to one of the Atlantic Record Groups labels (which is all under Warner Music Group). Which one? I’m not sure yet. But I have a feeling Diddy was feelin’ Alex when they met last year.

  3. @Snuffles, your guess seems as good as any. But what I don’t get then, is why the wait for an announcement? Didn’t Christina Perri sign with this group, too? They announced the day she signed. I feel it is somehow linked to Idol, why, I don’t know.

    Yeah, maybe one of Diddy’s scouts stayed to listen to Alex at the Dream Studio last summer and liked what he heard. The crowd sure was feelin’ Alex, fo sure!

    Now I REALLY have to go! :wink:

  4. Who the hell is Christina Perri? A lot a good that annoucement was! LOL! Has she released anything? I suspect by the time she does whatever little buzz she had will be gone and they’ll just have to start from scratch again promoting her. I’ve never heard of her.

    I agree Alex will be linked to Idol. If only to just ride off of the wave of publicity for the new season.

  5. @Diane and Snuffles – I love where you take the conversation. Alex doesn’t seem to be very busy at the moment, as if he’s waiting around for something. Let’s hope it’s for Idol. Yes who is Christina Perri?
    I also wonder if Alex is also signed to Warner Chappell Music Publishing. http://www.warnerchappell.com/

    He did have a meeting with Sony Publishing early on, but no announcements were made.

  6. Sorry, I thought everybody was familiar with Christina Perri’s rag to riches story. She was a singer working as a waitress in LA last summer, when a friend got one of her songs into the hands of a So You Think You Can Dance choreographer. The song was used on the show to a choreographed dance routine and it blew up overnight and became an iTunes sensation. I just checked her Wiki bio, and she got signed to Atlantic records less than a month later. I remember reading at the time that there was a bidding war for her, but she picked Atlantic, for whatever reason.

    Her song, Jar of Hearts, is popular on HAC radio right now. It’s this angsty tale of broken hearts, and the song is minimally produced to showcase her pretty raw sound. She put out an EP on iTunes in November without much fanfare, so consequently it didn’t get much traction. I think she’s working on a full album currently, I believe.

    Yeah, so if neither snuffles or Lauren has ever heard of her, she obviously didn’t become a household name. LOL I think Atlantic Records is aggressively snatching up people like Perri, so that might bode well for bringing Alex into their fold. I think that another Idol, Josiah Lemming, (remember him from a few years ago–he never made it past Hollywood), signed to Atlantic or one of the Warner labels, also.

  7. Its interesting that Atlantic has improved their roster a lot quite recently. They had been pretty down for a long while, in their volume of Star names. Long Before Warner took them over, they were a legendary label, of course, with Phil Collins, Foreigner,ABBA, and countless other A-listers…Perhaps, Warner is trying to return the Prestige to Atlantic…who knows? Of course, 19R has invested big bucks in producing Alex’s record(s), and they can partner with any of the LABEL GROUPS for the distribution/promotion end…I think Sony would be the least likely Label group, for the obvious reason, that they pretty much severed ties there for future 19 acts. And an indie label, would be out- 19 would not want Alex perceived in that way …So,UMG,Warner,and EMI are all there realistically is- they’ll spring it on us at some point… :ninja:

  8. Thanks Diane for the rundown on Christina. I watched SYTYCD that season, but didn’t see that particular night. It just goes to show you what can happen if your song is featured on a hit TV show. Exposure is key! I also read that she is managed by the same team that manages James Morrison and Jason Mraz and yes she is currently working on an album. Josiah Leming signed with Warner Brothers. I almost would prefer Alex with Atlantic, something about the roster of artists and the A&R head.
