Marathon Music Group has announced three new signings, in a move that chairman and CEO Paul Rene Albertini underlines its commitment to diverse and groundbreaking music.
First up, Marathon’s recently launched New Soil jazz division – helmed by former Sony Music exec Federico Bolza – has signed tuba player and composer Theon Cross (pictured). Cross has worked with Kano, Stormzy, Moses Boyd and Seed Ensemble.
Marathon Artists, the company’s flagship label, has unveiled new signings Friedberg and Lava La Rue. These are the first deals since head of A&R Ophelia Conheady arrived in April.
