By early 1996, Renaissance Records had signed multiple licensing deals with EMI-Capitol, Sony Music, BMG/ RCA/ Arista and Universal Music Group. The company also formed licensing contracts with individual artists both in the United States and abroad, as well as licensing an entire library of live concert recordings, which would become the basis of its Alive In America series. In 2020, Renaissance Records joined the vinyl renaissance and began releasing music onto vinyl. Renaissance Records continues to release music into 2021 from artists such as Crack The Sky, Electric Light Orchestra Part II, Girlschool, Lindisfarne, Magnum, The Ventures, Starz, Planet P Project, Bob Welch & Friends, and more.
We boast a roster of artists spanning a multi-generational musical evolution as well as rare releases from past-time favorites, new projects from familiar faces, and the occasional up-and-comers. From the progressive rock of Supertramp to the blues guitar of Freddie King, from the soul of Marvin Gaye to the pop vocals of The Brotherhood of Man, from the 80s icons Journey to the storytelling songs of Harry Chapin, from the improvisational jazz stylings of Return To Forever, to the pomp overtures of Sweet, from pop hitmakers Middle Of The Road to the grandiose catchy songs of ELO Pt. 2...Renaissance covers all of the classic music of our time. Also, we are introducing the next generation of classics Dirty Dollhouse, C'mon C'mon, Arielle and more! Since 1993 we have been the go-to source for great music.
