to the online home of Perseverance Records, the label that's focusing on the artist.
The first volumes of both Michael Picton's Flash Gordon and Don Peake's Knight Rider have been so successful that we don't want you to have to wait any longer for more of them. The second albums are out now.
We, at Perseverance, love film music. With that said, we have started a new division: Perseverance Distribution. Some might ask what this means. Well, here's a quick answer on what our service offers.
We run into situations where a composer or a small artist-run boutique label wants to be distributed nationwide. They do not want to do a licensing deal, where they might be paid 15-18% royalties, but are too small to get a national distribution deal and/ or CDBaby takes too much money. What we offer is access to our international distribution chain for any artist/label that needs more than the traditional website/Amazon only CD sales model.
The concept is simple. The artist is in full control. It's their music, their deal, their decisions. For a small fee, we work with them to make sure their music is available worldwide in Amazon, AEC and many other physical/ online stores. This affords the artist/ label the chance to get out to as many potential fans as possible.
The first of these titles is the just announced Knight Rider. While we do have this title in our system, it is not a Persey release, but rather one from Hitchcock Media that we got the rights to through a very generous deal with Universal.
The titles distributed by us are not designed, mastered or produced by us, so everything looks the same from the original release. We put our barcode on it due to a requirement from our distributor, but that's it.
We are happy to provide the opportunity for artists to make more money from their music.
Donald's third album with us (and certaily not the last!), Dawn Imagined, is available for pre-order now. This album contains thematic material he wrote for George Romero's Dawn of the Dead that was later left for "dead" when Goblin and Dario Argento came on board. A classic collector's item! It will ship February 18, 2014.
