Defend Music signs Gabriel Roth of Daptone Records

After working with Gabriel Roth for many years, we are extremely proud to announce that he has signed directly with Defend Music!

Roth is a Grammy award winning engineer, the founder and chief producer / engineer of Daptone Records, and a prolific song-writer, having penned over 150 songs. Roth a/k/a “Bosco Mann” is highly regarded throughout the industry for his detailed and analog approach, a rare find in today’s computer-obsessed production world.

Since the mid-90s, Roth has been honing his craft, first under his label Desco Records and then as co-founder of Daptone Records, producing, writing and arranging for the numerous artists on the label. His own band, the Dap-Kings, are the foundation of the Daptone House of Soul Stable, backing the label’s premier act Sharon Jones, and sought after by a growing list of premier artists (a list that includes Rod Stewart, Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble and Lily Allen).
