Quinnes ‘Q’ Parker of the Grammy Award-Winning music group 112 has announced the launch of his new imprint titled NeWFAM Entertainment. The Manhattan-based label sees Parker serve as CEO as he teams with senior executives and label partners Dora Din and Tara Griggs-Magee. NeWFAM Entertainment has landed a distribution deal with RED Distribution and Brody Distribution Group.
“I am very pleased to reconnect with Tara Griggs-Magee & the great label, NeWFAM Entertainment,” shares Bob Morelli, President and General Manager of RED Distribution. “The artists and their music are terrific and they fit in wonderfully with RED’s artist roster and overall approach to marketing & sales. Tara will continue to bring great music to RED and RED will be proactive in supporting her artists and their vision.”
RED Distribution, a division of Sony Music LLC, will be responsible for the physical and digital sales and distribution for NeWFAM Entertainment in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, Brody will be NeWFAM’s eyes and ears in the marketplace, positioning the label to be competitive and successful in today’s exciting and ever-changing music industry.
“I am thrilled and honored to work alongside respected industry veterans, forging the opportunity for my label to offer the very best distribution to our label artists,” says Q Parker. He adds, “RED offers a diverse and structured infrastructure I found to be most appealing with NeWFAM. I am happy to officially be in the position to call BDG/RED Distribution, NeWFAM’s North American distribution partner .”
The label’s first release under the new partnership, slated for summer 2017, is Will & Alexis, a re-emergence of the duo performance concept. Loosely compared to the storied Bebe and Cece Winans, Will & Alexis will lend a sonic breath of fresh air to music lovers seeking inspiration worldwide. From hard-hitting dance tracks and bass-filled toe-tapping grooves, to intimate and unforgettable worship staples, the combination of their voices and delivery offers a gumbo of urban inspiration, full with sound and energy that not only pleases ears, but fires up souls.
The duo is currently impacting radio with their debut single titled “Victory”. The single is a timely reminder of the success that believers can find in Jesus. The pair of cousins recently made an impact during Stellar Awards Weekend with a performance at the Urban Soul Cafe.
