Chloe George is one of the most brilliant writers we have come across, she has so many stories to tell through her music and we cannot wait to launch her artist project on the back of her success with her viral song, “ghost town.”‘ and “shallou has a proven track record on converting his success on streaming platforms to live ticket sales with playing the likes of Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outsidelands, and sold out tours. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the FADER Label family as he is a true visionary in the indie electronic space.”
FADER Label is marking its most triumphant year to date by affirming a new path forward with new hires and promotions within the staff, continuing to build upon the groundbreaking legacy of artist development and equity that has fueled the New York City-based independent label for nearly two decades. Co-founded in 2002 by Jon Cohen and Rob Stone, FADER Label has long been defined for its trailblazing passion for cultural discovery and creative backing, with a dynamic, forward-thinking focus on strategic marketing, A&R, publicity, street team marketing, digital marketing and social media support that allows its artists to maximize exposure while never losing sight of their artistic endeavors.
Driven by an extraordinarily diverse roster that includes RIAA platinum-certified singer-songwriter Clairo, self-made pop superstar Slayyyter who just cracked the Billboard Top 100 last week, actor-turned-accidental-rapper binki who has enchanted over 1M monthly Spotify listeners, multi-million-streaming NYC duo Lewis Del Mar, and iconic indie-dance band Matt and Kim, FADER Label has achieved a number of substantial and commercial milestones in recent years, including a remarkable 75% overall growth across all streaming platforms between 2019 and 2020. In addition, FADER Label artists have performed on a variety of late-night and early morning television shows, as well as landed syncs in films, TV shows, video games and commercials for brands including Nike, Acura, Mitsubishi, Verizon, FIFA, and Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto, among many others.
2021 looks even brighter with the recent release of Clairo’s blockbuster second studio album, Sling. Hailed by Variety’s Jem Aswad as a “vintage pop triumph,” the album entered Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums’ Chart at #1 and the overall Billboard 200 at #17 – Clairo’s highest-charting release thus far. Clairo – who heralded Sling with a spectacular live performance of the album’s first single, “Blouse,” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and was recently featured on the covers of both Rolling Stone and NME – will celebrate with a major North American headline tour, set for 2022.
Furthermore, Slayyyter’s eagerly anticipated debut album, Troubled Paradise, dropped in June 2021 and was fast met by critical applause and high profile media attention including a cover appearance on Gay Times and prestigious placement on the Spotify billboard in New York City’s Times Square. Widely acclaimed for her bold sound and idiosyncratic style, Slayyyter – who sold out her first headlining tour without having even performed live before – will embark on a long-awaited world headline tour in 2022.
Among FADER Label’s many other recent successes, PA-born, BKLYN-based rapper binki saw his easy to love single, “Heybb!,” featured in Apple’s iPad Air 2020 reveal and worldwide ad campaign and just released his debut EP MOTOR FUNCTION, which received praise from the likes of Matt Wilkinson, Dazed, NME, & more.
Future plans for FADER Label include an array of new signings while continuing to develop rising artists like binki, James Ivy, Zachary Knowles, Charlie Burg, ella jane, Kristiane, Jaebanzz, and Super Duper as they record and release singular work all their own.
