CCM+E Does Dualtone Digital Deal

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment and Dualtone Music Group, a leading boutique independent music label, today announced an agreement that enables Dualtone and its artists to share revenue from Clear Channel’s broadcast and digital radio.

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment is the leading media company in America with a greater reach than any other radio or television outlet.

Dualtone Music Group is a Nashville-based independent label specializing in roots rock, indie rock and critically acclaimed singer/songwriters. Founded in 2001 by Scott Robinson, the label’s CEO, Dualtone is known for its thoughtful approach to artist development, providing dedicated attention to a small roster and focusing on gradual, long-term success.

This style has attracted artists like The Lumineers, whose quadruple-platinum single “Ho Hey” has garnered more than 65 million YouTube views, is consistently in the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100, and whose self-titled debut album went platinum as the band was nominated for two Grammy Awards.

Dualtone’s current artist roster includes The Lumineers, Shovels & Rope, Ivan & Alyosha, Little Comets and legendary songsmith Guy Clark. Overall, Dualtone’s artists have been nominated for 17 Grammy Awards, including three wins.

This is the second such deal in a week for Clear Channel, which signed a deal with Fearless Records earlier in the week. CC now has a total of 10 agreements with record labels.
