When you do what you love, you do not have to work a day in your life. This adage seems to have been written with Atlantic Records in mind. Record and music enthusiasts Ahmet Ertegun and Herb Abramson, founded the company in 1947 with the headquarters in New York, United States. The passion and dedication they put into building Atlantic Records has paid rich dividends. Within a short span, Atlantic Records became an American label to reckon with, especially in jazz, soul and R&B genres. Musicians of repute trusted them with their music and this paved the way for some chartbusting albums by all-time greats such as Led Zeppelin, Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Cher, Aretha Franklin and many more.
The company gradually signed up artists from different music genres and over the years, it has introduced and promoted modern day stars such as Bruno Mars, ColdPlay, Ed Sheeran and the likes. It is now owned by the Warner Music Group, and has extended its reach to rock music and pop music. One of the reasons that Atlantic Records continues to be relevant and successful today lies in the vision of its CEO, Craig Kallman, who is a musician at heart, with a great ear for untapped talent and successful music.
Atlantic Records has come to represent a one-stop shop for great music across diverse styles with great labels such as Elektra Records, Maybach Music Group, Roadrunner Records, Big Beat Records Fueled by Ramen and Canvasback. Legends of music such as ABBA, Aretha Franklin, Albert King, Bee Gees, Bette Milder, Donny Hathaway, Crosby, Stills Nash & Young, Herbie Mann, Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins, Ruth Brown, Sean Paul, The Clovers, The Rolling Stones, Wilson Pickett and many more greats, consider Atlantic Records their home and have collaborated for some great chart topping music.
