[Local Stew News] Lafayette Based Label Wilhelm Records To Be Distributed By Victory Records
From the official Victory Records website:
Wilhelm was founded by Dylan Frederick in mid-2015 with the ambition and passion of giving up and coming artists an opportunity to be heard. “Playing in bands over the years, I never thought I’d get too much into this side of the industry.” Frederick mentions, “Having Victory onboard with our future plans is exciting and very surreal. We plan to make our mark by putting out great music by hard working bands with the same vision.”
Wilhelm Records’ has records planned for Hopes On Hold, Postcards From Jane, Mallory Run, American Pastime and Skylines for 2017 with more on the way.
Tony Brummel, Founder of Victory Records said, "Dylan has a fantastic work ethic and reminds me of when I started Victory out of my closet in 1989. He is building his label and has a solid roster of developing bands. As so many labels in the independent community continue to get acquired it is important that we help develop and support those with the courage and passion to start new homes for artists. We have had the pleasure of helping labels like Rise Records, Standby Records and Sumerian get established from their beginnings along with many labels that we currently distribute. The independent fire still burns in many of us and I am glad to have another label join our family.”
Wilhelm joins GMM, ISCREAM, Luxor, Mutant League, Standby, WAT and a number of other labels that Victory provides distribution services for.
