Defend inks North American administration deal with Italian publisher Record Kicks

We are happy to announce our administration deal with Italian label/publisher Record Kicks!

Record Kicks has been a strong indie publisher since 2003 and have released acts such as the Third Coast Kings from Michigan to The Liberators from Australia and acts like Katzuma from Italy. They’re catalog runs from afro-beat to soul to jazz to nu-disco, and RK even offers folk. We at the Defend are very excited to move toward the future with Record Kicks.

Here’s what our respective owners had to to say about our partnership:

“… With Defend president Michael Prommer words ‘Defend is excited to welcome Record Kicks and its stable of talented artists to our company. We look forward working with Record Kicks to increase their presence in the US.’ According to Record Kicks Publishing MD Nick ‘it’s an honor to be part of such a great roster of artists, Defend is the right partner we were looking for’.”
