Signum Records to collaborate with Cala Records12:08, 10th January 2019
Independent label Signum Records has announced a collaboration with boutique London-based label Cala Records.
The partnership will enable Cala to benefit from Signum’s strong distribution network, while allowing Signum to benefit from Cala’s successful catalogue and the economies of scale.
Cala’s future recordings will be released under the new brand Cala Signum. The label’s present releases will continue to be sold as Cala Records but on re-pressing will appear under the new brand.
Cala’s back catalogue includes the London Sound Series of large single-instrument orchestra, and New York Legends, a series of recitals by principal players from the New York Philharmonic.
Steve Long, founder and managing director of Signum Records, said: ‘I have known Cala’s output for decades now and in fact created some of their releases before Signum was launched.
‘It’s great that we can now market the Cala catalogue under the Cala Signum imprint and I look forward to distributing the catalogue both physically and digitally around the world.’
Geoffrey Simon, founder and artistic director of Cala Records, added: ‘I’ve enjoyed working with Steve over many years on the production side, and look forward now to this exciting collaboration.’
