FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL ANNOUNCES NEW A&R PARTNERSHIP FOR SCANDINAVIA
MAGNUS SÖDERQVIST JOINS LABEL TEAM AS A&R CONSULTANT
NEW STAFF ADDITION PART OF ONGOING LARGER TEAM EXPANSION FOR INDIE LABEL
Frontiers Music Srl has announced the addition of Magnus Söderqvist to the label's staff as an A&R specialist with focus on the Scandinavian market in particular.
With over 30 years experience in the music industry, Magnus Söderqvist is a highly skilled and experienced A&R professional. Based out of Stockholm, Sweden, he started his career in A&R with a variety of independent labels including Dino/Quality, Empire, MegaRock, MTM Music, and Atenzia.
Additionally, Magnus has also worked in artist management, publishing, and as a developing consultant on new music projects for media house MTG. As a manager, Magnus signed artists to major labels both in the UK and U.S., and has been working with multiple songwriters to get their songs recorded by international superstars. Magnus has been running Catapult Music for the last 10 years, a company that is involved with management, publishing (Catapult Songs), brokering label deals, and consulting services (A&R, creative, and artist development).
”I was excited about this opportunity when Frontiers approached me about working A&R. It was like coming full circle, getting the chance to work melodic rock once again, as that’s where it all started for me and it is the field where I know I am at the top of my game," says Magnus. "Hearing about Serafino’s [Perugino, President & Head of A&R of Frontiers Music Srl] vision for FRONTIERS moving forward in the ever changing music industry, which is very forward-thinking and proactive, I knew this would be a good fit for me. I like the challenge and think that I can be a highly influential asset and resource for Frontiers and Serafino to achieve their goals.”
"I have known Magnus since the early days of Frontiers. He and the other guys at MTM had the good faith to give Frontiers the distribution rights to their label in Italy and I will be forever grateful for that. Over the course of many years, we developed a great working relationship. We were partners and competitors at the same time because I had a lot of respect for Magnus’ A&R abilities which, in melodic and classic rock, were second to none. Recently, we met again with him at Frontiers Rock Sweden and the idea of a collaboration came about and we both thought it made perfect sense. I am sure Magnus will bring an extra touch of class to our label’s releases and he has an inventive vision that will benefit the label in the long run. This will also strengthen the label’s position in one of the most important markets, Scandinavia, for our genres and will give the local artists an extra level of support to develop their own fanbase and business. Welcome Magnus, rock music needed you back!" adds Frontiers Music Srl President & Head Of A&R, Serafino Perugino.
The addition of Magnus Söderqvist is part of a larger expansion of Frontiers Music Srl. More staff additions, office openings, and other exciting steps for the label's expansion are in the works and will be unveiled in the coming months.
