Nelly Furtado is launching her own record label in hopes of helping aspiring singers and bands make it in the industry.
Furtado has launched Nelstar in co-operation with Canadian independent record company Last Gang Labels. And she's already signed her first act!
Toronto-based electro-pop quartet Fritz Helder & the Phantoms were just signed under her new label.
She says, "I've been thinking about a way to help Fritz Helder for a while and this venture grew out of my love for the band, their art and their work ethic. I am as committed as they are to bringing their creativity to the world."
So all you aspiring singers should track Nelly down for a deal. If she likes your stuff, she'll be more than happy to help you!
