JAM Records is breaking ground by providing its artists with an "Artist Bill of
Rights" that includes: (1) larger participation in the profits, (2) transparent accounting, (3) complete creative license, (4) one album at a time contracts, and (5) enhanced marketing and distribution.
JAM founder's include: Bob Johnston, who has produced over half a billion units, for such artists as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Simon & Garfunkel, Louis Armstrong and Aretha Franklin, and wrote best selling songs for artists including 21 songs for Elvis Presley. Charles E. Armstrong is Internet Week's Media & Services E-Commerce Executive of the Year, and one of the industry's leading expert in marketing and distribution, and formally founder of AMFM, at the time the world's largest radio broadcast entity. Paul Marshall is recognized as one of the country's leading legal experts in recording and music publishing.
JAM Records is scheduled to release two albums in the first quarter of 2003, which will include some of the biggest names in the industry, and is rapidly signing established artists. To fund these new acquisitions, JAM has retained C. K. Cooper & Company in Irvine, CA.
