Fanatic Records Inks Shunda K, Lachi, and Red Wanting Blue
Plant City, Florida's Shunda K is best known as the original voice of hip-hop duo, Yo! Majesty (Domino Records). Fanatic will release the "Here I Am To Save The World" maxi-single featuring Cindy Wonderful of Scream Club on July 27th on CD and 12". The single is culled from Shunda K's upcoming solo album debut and includes remixes by up and coming producers, Scripts 'N Screwz, Nite Club, and The New Loud.
Lachi hails from Brooklyn and has been making a ruckus in NYC for the last several years with her brand of jazz-tinged tunes that evoke Alanis Morrisette, Regina Spektor and sometimes Kelly Clarkson. Lachi is also an activist on behalf of blind musicians. As a blind artist herself, Lachi acts locally as her live band is also made up of visually "empowered" musicians. Fanatic will release Lachi's self-titled debut on July 27th.
Red Wanting Blue has been called the hardest working band in America. After a decade on the road, the band had passed on many label offers before finding a match with Fanatic. The band's self-released album These Magnificent Miles will be re-issued nationally on July 27th, 2010 along with a double-LP special edition. The record was produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson, REM.)
Fanatic Records is the next-step evolution of Fanatic Promotion, a NYC public relations agency started in 1997 that has come to be known as a vital source in the industry for discovering new talent. The label is distributed in North America by EMI/Caroline.
