HOT: Golden Robot acquires Social Family Records

Social Family Records has been acquired by Golden Robot Entertainment


Under the new structure, Social Family Records’ roster will remain largely unchanged hosting and signing country and adult contemporary artists, while GRR will predominantly be a home for more rock acts, including both emerging and classic.

“What matters most to the artist is knowing that that infrastructure that they bought into initially is still there,” he added. “And the team still feels the same sort of love, passion and dedication to their project, and that the funds are there to promote it and get it out there – it’s all about relationships.

“The basic idea behind GRE is a family company and family ideology,” said Alexander-Erber. “Very much like Alberts did in the ‘70s and ‘80s and Motown did as well. We have our own studio, labels, distro, brand, merch… Everything is to benefit the artists and take them to (or back to) the world stage.”
