On June 1st we reported on Ellen’s announcement that Greyson Chance was signed by ElevenEleven records, a label she started after discovering Greyson on YouTube. In this article we mentioned that there was a good possibility of Ellen’s new label establishing a partnership with a major record company such as Interscope Records. At the time of this original article there were rumors all over the place that Greyson had signed with Interscope but most dismissed this possibility after Ellen’s announcement.
Today we learned that our initial speculation was absolutely correct! (Whoever started the initial rumor was kinda’ right too!) We now know that Greyson is officially listed on the Interscope-Geffen-A&M label group website as one of their signed artists!
The Interscrope-Geffen-A&M label group is an American record label owned by Universal Music Group. The group operates under three labels: Interscope, Geffen and A&M. As of right now there is no official confirmation as to which label in particular Greyson will be operating under although there are several reports it’s Geffen Records. We knew it was just a matter of time before Ellen attached herself with a giant such as Interscope, being that her label is still in the infant stages of development.
With this announcement Greyson is now part of one of the largest and most respected record labels in the music industry. Greyson will be among artists such as Eminem, Dr. Dre, The Black Eyed Peas and his biggest idol, Lady Gaga. Being a part of such a huge label also opens up the door for collaboration with these other artists. Think about it, how amazing would it be if Greyson Chance and Lady Gaga did a song together!
