Bookmark and Share

Caroline International, the premier global partner for independent labels and artists, has appointed Thomas Lorain to head its French unit.

A veteran of both independent and major labels in France who has launched successful pan-European independent distribution networks, Lorain will oversee Caroline's releases in France as well as forge relationships between Caroline and the French independent artist and label community for domestic and international projects. Lorain, who reports jointly to Caroline International Managing Director Michael Roe and Joint MD and Head of Music Jim Chancellor, took up his new role on January 27.

Roe and Chancellor said: "We're absolutely delighted to welcome Thomas to Caroline International. He has such an impressive track record of success with independent artists and labels both in France and internationally that he is the ideal person to launch our French company and build it into something very special for our partners."

Lorain said: "I'm really excited to be joining Michael and Jim and all the team at Caroline. It is a real global music company, with strong expertise, resources and ambition. I feel very lucky to be a part of this superb team.''

Lorain joins Caroline International from one of France's leading independent labels, Wagram Music, where he was International Label Director. In this role he set up the company's international network of partners and licensees and launched a new label for the company, wSphere. He developed international releases for Wagram associated labels, including Tt ou Tard's Shaka Ponk and Cats on Trees, and signed Team Ghost and Miss Kittin to wSphere.

From 2006 to 2012 Lorain worked at one of France's other top indie labels, Nave, where he was in charge of developing the company's pop and classical business internationally. He created and built Nave's global network for both physical and digital distribution and oversaw the company's international A&R, working with artists including Cyndi Lauper, M83, Carla Bruni and Marianne Faithful. From 2001 to 2005 he worked at EMI Music/Virgin Records France where he oversaw the international campaigns of the Labels France division, coordinating the global releases of projects from artists including Daft Punk, Air, Interpol and Asian Dub Foundation. He has also worked at Sony Music France and began his career at Wagram Music in 1994 as an Export Sales Representative.

Caroline International was established in 2013 to deliver a bespoke service to independent labels and artists in every market and region of the world. Through its dedicated teams around the world the company provides services including marketing, promotion, A&R, commercial, sync and admin whilst utilising and leveraging the global reach of Universal Music's sales and distribution platforms and relationships. Upcoming releases through Caroline International in 2014 include new recordings from The Augustines, St Vincent, Kaiser Chiefs, Glass Animals and Brody Dalle.
