Frontiers Records is excited to announce that Derek Shulman and 2Plus Music Entertainment has agreed to oversee the label development and marketing over the North American market.
After an internationally acknowledged career as singer for the Progressive Music band Gentle Giant, Derek Shulman became involved in the recording business in the early 80’s. Starting as an A&R representative at PolyGram Records, where he rose to the ranks of Senior Vice President, he signed Bon Jovi, Dan Reed Network, Cinderella, and Kingdom Come, among many others. In 1988 he became President and C.E.O of Atco Records (where he signed the progressive metal band Dream Theater, as well as Pantera). He also re-established the careers of AC/DC and Bad Company, both of whom sold multi-platinum albums under his watch. He then went on to become President of Roadrunner Records overseeing signings like Slipknot and Nickelback.
2PLUS directors, internationally renowned music impresario Leonardo Pavkovic and CFO Lawrence Offsey join him in this endeavour.
2PLUS will coordinate artist acquisition and marketing for Frontiers in North America and will represent the label in the relationship with the local distributors and promoters.
Frontiers Records label President Serafino Perugino stated, “Working with “the professor” Derek Shulman has been nothing but a joy so far. His experience and wisdom are going to guide Frontiers Records growth to the next level and we are absolutely excited to share with him and 2PLUS a vision for the future growth of Frontiers in the North American market”.
Derek Shulman stated “ I am extremely excited about being involved with Serafino and Frontiers Records”. It is very gratifying to work with people who are music fans and yet understand the dynamics of the ever-changing music business model. Frontiers Records is committed to making the leap to become the premiere independent rock music company worldwide. I am very happy to lend my experience to my friends at Frontiers to realize this goal”.

Classic Rock magazine recently compared Torpedohead’s music to the the sleaze of Guns N’ Roses. While it may be a little too soon to make that type of comparison, I have to admit that I think the band’s song “Cadillac Beach” is pretty damn cool. Check it out in the video below!Vodpod videos no longer available.
