Multi-Platinum Producer Dito Godwin Launches New London-Based Label EC3 Records

Bookmark and Share

Long a believer that "good music is good music" no matter the genre, Dito Godwin's career as a multi-platinum producer includes sessions with an enviable slate of artists: No Doubt, Motley Crue, KISS members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, Jack Russell and Great White, late Warrant frontman Jani Lane and country music legend Charley Pride.

The multi-talented award winning musician brings the same open-minded, progressive aesthetic to his exciting latest endeavor, the new London based label EC3 Records, which he is launching with London businessman Martin Quick. The company, named for the postal code for the financial district where their office is located, has a distribution deal with Bungalo/Universal, which Godwin has been affiliated with for a number of years.

According to Godwin, "The label will not specialize in a particular genre of music, but will sign great artists with great material and concentrate on each release as it happens. We are currently considering artists in the UK, but will soon expand our search worldwide."

EC3's flagship artist will be UK alternative guitar driven rockers The Brink, an emerging four piece band whose members are from Cambridge and points north. Godwin got wind of them on a recent trip to London from his friend, onetime Geffen and MCA promotions man Pete Bassett, whose current UK based marketing and PR company is called Quite Great. The producer was so impressed with their powerful musicianship, dynamic image and loyal, growing local fan base that he immediately began co-writing and producing nine new songs with them.

The Brink's self-titled album, which will be released later this year, was produced at Sensible Sound in London, a renowned facility, where the late Amy Winehouse, among others, had recorded. For Godwin, working with The Brink, meeting Quick and launching EC3 was an unexpected development.

"Martin is a relative of one of the band members who began attending the sessions as an observer and we became fast friends. Over many lunches and dinners, we realized we had a mutual love for the same kinds of music and fast cars, and had a similar style of doing business. I certainly didn't come to London to discover a band and start an independent record company, but everything came together very quickly and naturally and I couldn't be more excited."
