Baz x RCA!
World renowned director, producer and screenwriter Baz Luhrmann, the director of The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge, has entered into an exclusive, worldwide and multi-tiered agreement with RCA Records. This long-term joint venture will consist of a new record label, Bazmark Records, with RCA as Luhrmann's creative, marketing and distribution partner on his label's recorded music endeavors.
The deal will also include the potential of jointly acquiring the rights to additional recording projects as well as signing new artists under Bazmark Records/RCA Records.
So yeah, Baz will be finding, fostering and supporting musical talent. It's not a shock, since music has factored so heavily into his movies.
"While I'm probably best known for story-telling and ideas, my true passion has always been music," says Luhrmann. "You can imagine what it feels like for someone from a small town in Australia to be invited to join the legendary record label 'RCA,' home of The King, and so many musical legends and personal heroes."
That's an Elvis Presley reference, you guys!
Are you stoked about this venture and are you excited to hear what kind of acts and music are a part of this deal?
