It’s not just back catalogues of songwriters and recording artists that investment firms are interested in. Exceleration Music’s latest deal is a ‘strategic financial alliance’ with independent label Mom+Pop Music.

That includes an investment in the label’s catalogue, but also resources to help its future releases and business growth. However, Mom+Pop has made it clear that the label will “continue to be solely owned and operated” by its founders Michael Goldstone and Thaddeus Rudd.

“This deal with Exceleration allows us to forge ahead having the financial ability to attract and sign the artists that we believe in,” said Goldstone.

“We chose this path because it provides financial tools enabling us to maintain our self-sufficiency. We’ve created a hybrid in today’s market, offering artistic controls and boutique service, pairing it with the power and reach of a larger system,” added Rudd.

Exceleration Music certainly isn’t ‘dumb’ VC money: it was launched by former Concord COO Glen Barros, and already has a firm foot in the indie sector with deals such as its 2021 acquisition of label Bloodshot Records.
