About 1stRound Records
At 1st Round Records, music is our universal language. We are dedicated to working with creative artists and bringing true content to music that people can enjoy in any walk of life. Independently established in 2009, 1st Round is based out of Los Angeles, California, the music capital of the world. It gained recognition from its first artist Sammy Adams, when they released his debut album, Boston’s Boy, at #1 on the iTunes hip-hop charts.
Now expanding across other genres of music such as hip-hop, pop, dance and R&B, 1st Round has added multiple other acts to the family, and continues to grow as one of the most prominent independent labels. “We attack the music industry from a different angle; one that we find most beneficial and specific to each artist on our roster. It’s a different world today, and lots of musicians are finding success with the focus indies’ are able to provide,” says Zack Johnson, President of 1st Round Records. Overall, 1st Round builds a solid platform for its artists to stand on.
