In a rapidly evolving industry that’s becoming more and more do-it-yourself, Launchpad’s Artist and Label Services division offers independent artists, labels, management companies, and other talents and organizations that work outside the traditional major label system the opportunity to leverage a full-service, one-stop, turnkey solution that provides all the functions and expertise of a large record label, while allowing clients the flexibility to retain control and ownership of their music, copyrights, and all assets and key parameters of its creation and release. It’s the A&R, artist development, marketing, promotional, sales, and distribution muscle of a record label without the strings attached.
It also allows artists and companies to create instant start-up labels utilizing the power and strategic expertise of industry experts from around the world.
The division is led by founder Steve Tramposch, whose experience features a number of successful titles as a Senior A&R executive for several of the world’s leading music companies, including Capitol, Virgin, Elektra, Eleven Seven, Billboard and more, where he’s been instrumental in the early discovery of numerous artists signed across multiple genres that would later result in the worldwide sale of tens of millions of albums to date.
