Melbourne’s Reckless Records is set to launch with a strong schedule of releases, representing some of the biggest names in Australian rock, headed up by artist manager and promoter, Creative Services’ Scot Crawford.
Crawford’s vision was to add a label to the management and artist services network that he has created across the past nine years.
Scot Crawford said today:
“I basically came from mostly Independent record labels where I worked in a bunch of different capacities. I fell into management and promoting around nine years ago and realise that my strength has always been marketing. One thing that became apparent to me during lockdown was how prolific many of the artist I work with had become. Someone, ‘jokingly’ mentioned I should add a label to the mix… and here we are. With the music marketing landscape constantly changing now is a great opportunity to look at new ways we can use product to continue generating profile while we build and reinvigorate careers.
“The only solid theme to the label currently is that it will be all Australian. Otherwise we will just ‘be like water’…. And yes, we plan on developing new artists and projects.”
Reckless Records’ first release on November 19 is a live cut of Boom Crash Opera’s hit, ‘Get Out Of The House’ – perfect timing for the ultimate party song as the country starts to come out of lockdown. The band’s EP ‘Kick It Out Live’ is set to come in February 2022.
Also coming from the label over the next few months are single releases from James Reyne, The Poor, Palace Of The King, Angry Anderson, and Rose Tattoo, with many of the artists heading out on the road in the months ahead to fulfil tour dates postponed due to Covid, and undertake new dates.
