Reckless Records launches with Scot Crawford at the helm

Melbourne has a new record label in the form of Reckless Records.

The label launches with a roster including James Reyne, Boom Crash Opera, The Poor, Angry Anderson, Rose Tattoo and Palace of the King.

The new offering is being spearheaded by artist manager and promoter, Creative Services’ Scot Crawford.

He said his vision was to add a label to the management and artist services network that he has created over the past nine years.

“I basically came from mostly independent record labels where I worked in a bunch of different capacities,” he said. “I fell into management and promoting around nine years ago and realise that my strength has always been marketing.

“One thing that has become apparent to me during lockdown was how prolific many of the artists I work with had become. Someone jokingly mentioned I should add a label to the mix – and here we are.

“With the music marketing landscape constantly changing, now is a great opportunity to look at new ways we can use product to continue generating profile while we build and reinvigorate careers.”

He said the only theme of the label would be all-Australian music, and that he would continue to develop new artists and projects.

Reckless Records’ first release is on November 19. It will be a live cut of Boom Crash Opera’s ‘Get Out Of The House’, which the label said is perfect timing as the country starts to come out of lockdown. The band’s EP ‘Kick It Out Live’ will follow in February 2022.
