Music Executive Gary Marella launching new Roma Records label
HollywoodNews.com: Gary Marella, who is responsible for breaking some of the biggest artists in the music business (such as Lil Wayne, Akon, Drake, Nelly, 3 Doors Down, Erykah Badu, Jack Johnson, Blue October, Birdman, Kid Cudi and more) over the past decade at Universal Motown Records is staring his own label and touring company.
The label, Roma Records, is distributed through Blackground/ Interscope Records where his first artist, Jordy Towers, is slated to come out the end of 2010 or early 2011. In addition, his management, marketing and touring company, Del Mar Entertainment, has already packaged tours with Live Nation and consulted such record labels as Cash Money, Konvict Muzik, J Records, Sony, Atlantic and Def Jam. Del Mar’s artist management division continues to grow beyond just music to include artists in varying realms of entertainment such as his newest signing, international star Lior Suchard who Marella just recently signed to a new deal with United Talent Agency for representation.
Previous to his tenure at Universal Motown Records, Marella worked at Priority Records, specializing in Hip Hop where he was influential in breaking the careers of such acts as Jay-Z (the label of his first release, ‘Reasonable Doubt’), Master P, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube, to name a few. Marella first entered the music industry over 15 years ago through Interscope Records, where he started in publishing and eventually discovered promotion.
