Take everything you have ever heard about a major record label or the music business and throw it out the window…We Did! The Render Records model is simple, If The Music Is Right, The Business Will Be There! Some say that you have to think outside the box to be successful in today’s music business, well, we went a step further and threw the box out the window too. At Render Records, we believe in music, it’s creation, passion and its ability to build bridges and tear down walls of separation in a global society. Our objective is to work with artist that we believe in and utilize the social media avenue along with radio, television and film to introduce our artists to the most important person in the process…YOU! We won’t begin to decide for you when it comes to the music you will hear and buy, we are smart enough to realize that you can do that on your own. We are all about getting the music to you the people and letting you decide it’s fate and not some stuffy record executive that spends his days listening to music he can’t stand, knows nothing about, wishing he had gotten into acting. We hope you like what we do, because we love it.
There are no suits at work at Render Records, but you will find a lot of t-shirts, tattoos, spiked hair, jeans and flip- flops. Our creative and ownership team is comprised of hit songwriters, award winning producers from every genre of music and some of the music industry and tech worlds smartest people!
