Major Record Distribution Red Carpet Awards Nomination
Founded in September 2021 by Phyllis Salter-Gann, Bruce W. Jackson, Andy Courcier, and Drake King, Major Record Distribution encountered early struggles, unable to secure a major distribution deal and consequently shelving the label in late 2022. Revitalization occurred in May 2023 when the label secured distribution through The Orchard of Sony, prompting over 150 artist submissions. With stringent selection criteria focusing on artist drive and work ethic, the label has since signed Ameri Shaye and Richie Love. In 2024, amidst management changes due to Drake King’s departure, the label earned its first nomination for the MRDG Red Carpet Awards in Europe.
