EDGEOUT Records is an American independent record label, founded by Tony Guanci and Cheryl-Benson Guanci in 2018. EDGEOUT is partnered through Universal Music Group / Universal Music Enterprises in a global services and distribution agreement.
EDGEOUT focuses on the development and curation of young mainstream ROCK bands and artists that will be the future rock movement in the music industry.
EDGEOUT will sign young musicians that successfully complete an exclusive artist development program.
This process will allow EDGEOUT to achieve a roster of artists that have the greatest potential of becoming transcendent and ultimately standing the test of time.
EDGEOUT Records also signs established artists who have specialized musical projects that need support. EDGEOUT additionally has a distribution division that provides services to bands and artists that meet specific criteria.
The EDGEOUT team will continue to provide ongoing development support for our established artists during their entire career path.
Alongside label and development operations, EDGEOUT also hosts ROCKVASION, a rock and roll showcase. ROCKVASION is a discovery curator, where unsigned ROCK bands can submit to be selected to perform in front of industry tastemakers, decision makers and of course – fans!
EDGEOUT is additionally proud to present the BERRY HILL ROCK HOUSE, a content collective in Nashville, TN, set to launch in Spring 2023.
ROCKVASION is a nationwide rock’n’roll showcase event, that is owned and produced by EDGEOUT Records.
Rock bands and artists have the opportunity to be discovered by submitting their original music and works to EDGEOUT’s A&R Team for consideration, and the possibility of being offered a recording contract with the label.
After review, the team will select three bands to showcase at ROCKVASION’S curated event in front of a LIVE audience of music fans, industry leaders and EDGEOUT A&R decision-makers.
ROCKVASION occurred in October 2023- However, submissions for next year will begin in Summer 2024.
