SO Recordings has announced a new digital and physical distribution deal with Universal’s Caroline label services business, covering the US and Canada.

Caroline President Dominic Pandiscia said of the deal: “All at Caroline are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with SO Recordings. Their creative vision, A&R sensibility, and approach to market are all truly cutting edge and we look forward to partnering with them across a wide range of services to help support their artists”.

While SO Recordings CEO Reynold D’Silva added: “As we continue to invest heavily in global A&R, whilst targeting our strategy towards the US market, we needed a team to entrust with our records. To this end, Caroline and Dominic Pandiscia’s formidable team have demonstrated a vision that fully complements our commitment to establish the label in North America”.

The London-based label, part of the Silva Screen Music Group, launched in 2010 and has a roster currently featuring Dinosaur Pile-Up and Morning Parade, both of whom have albums scheduled for this year, as well as The Chevin, Apache Relay and Fenech-Soler. The company has also worked with former ‘X-Factor’ contestants Matt Cardle and Diana Vickers.
