Adam Anders, who has a plum gig as executive Music Producer of Glee, today announced the launch of his record label, Anders Music. Based in Los Angeles, the label will be home to a diverse range of artists. Anders Music first signing is singer/songwriter/actor Shane Harper, whom Anders discovered through MySpace, which is now considered an old-fashioned way to find bands nowadays. Harper's self-titled debut album and first single "One Step Closer" are now available on iTunes.
"Launching the label has been an incredibly fulfilling endeavor," said Anders. "I'm thrilled to introduce a roster of incredibly talented new artists to the music community and look forward to fostering their creativity through a collaborative process."

The single can also be heard on the in-store playlists for Abercrombie & Fitch's Hollister stores. Harper is currently on a nationwide tour with Greyson Chance and Cody Simpson, and will perform in over 20 major cities when all is said and done. What a way to catch people's attention!
