Warner Bros. Records

Warner Bros. Records (WBR) has stood as a beacon of artistic freedom and creative expression for the past six decades, releasing some of the most culturally influential and innovative music of our time. Beginning in 1958 as the label arm of the famed movie studio, things began to take shape in the early ‘60s with artists like the Everly Brothers, Peter Paul & Mary, and comedian Bob Newhart. With the acquisition of Frank Sinatra’s Reprise Records in 1963, the WBR mantra of “the music first” took hold, leading to the signing of such groundbreaking artists as the Kinks, Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, James Taylor, Rod Stewart, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, and many more. The WBR UK label is home to an impressive generation of artists, among them Dua Lipa, Royal Blood, Biffy Clyro, L Devine, The Black Keys, Mist, Liam Gallagher, Foals, Muse and many others.
