Island Records, which celebrates its 57th anniversary in 2016, maintains its position as one of the world’s legendary record labels, a coveted destination for new and established artists of every description. Island staked its claim at the beginning of the musical revolution that shook the 1960s and ’70s, and continues that trend-spotting spirit of adventure. Today’s Island is home to a varied roster that ranges from Nick Jonas, Mike Posner, Fall Out Boy, Shawn Mendes, and The Killers, to Jake Bugg, Tove Lo, Keke Palmer, American Authors, Avicii, Banners, The Gaslight Anthem, Kiesza, and many more.
Originally established in 1984, 4th and Broadway was a hip-hop focused label with artists such as Eric B. & Rakim and M/A/R/R/S. Re-launched in 2013, the label has been given new life now as a dance-focused imprint of Island Records.
