The public might think of films like Cloverfield, Star Wars, and other blockbusters when hearing J.J. Abrams’ name. What they might not know, however, is that the iconic director is quite the savvy businessman as well. He already owns his own production company called Bad Robot. Now, he’s exploring vertical integration even deeper within film through the formation of his brand new indie record label Loud Robot — ran in partnership with Capitol Music.

With Loud Robot in action, Abrams and Bad Robot will be given the “opportunity to place original music in its film and television shows.” This could make for quite the treasure trove of innovative music and talented artists to chose from when it comes to soundtracking with unique music, and shows how forward thinking Abrams is when it comes to his love of filmmaking and directing, and realizing his creative vision. The imprint will be managed by McKee Floyd of Glassnote Entertainment Group), Fort William artist manager Nicky Berger, and Bad Robot’s own Charles Scott.
