Music Discovery Platform WAV Partners With The Orchard (EXCLUSIVE)

WAV, the Los Angeles-based music discovery app and artist platform which counts Steve Rifkind, formerly of Loud Records, as a principle, has partnered with Sony Music’s The Orchard for digital and physical distribution. WAV artists, which are primarily hip-hop and electronic acts, will have the opportunity to be up-streamed through the Orchard network.

Said Jeanie Han, CEO of WAV, in announcing the deal: “Only a well-respected and forward-looking company like The Orchard could help us reach our ambitious goal of providing a one-of-a-kind platform for emerging artists. Through WAV and The Orchard, artists can literally go from being an unknown, to signing a record deal, to having fans listen to their music around the world.”

Producer A1 is the first artist to sign to WAV’s in-house label. His debut single, “Always,” was released on July 28 (listen below).

“Everyone knows A1 as a premier producer/songwriter and one of the stars of ‘Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,’ but we’re excited to introduce him to the world as an artist,” said Rifkind.

Added A1: “I am super amped to be signed and putting my music out with new record label WAV, this will be one for the books. The key to success for me is in A flat Major.”
