Biography

WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF A NEW LOOK? ONE MIGHT THINK OF A NEW LOOK ON LIFE, OR POSSIBLY A NEW IMAGE. IN THE CASE OF NU LOOK RECORDS, CEOs JOHN SPALDING AND JAMES GIBSON MEAN A NU LOOK ON MUSICAL TALENT — AND A NU LOOK AT CONDUCTING BUSINESS IN A CUT-THROAT INDUSTRY. NULOOK IS AGAINST ALL ODDS BUT MAINTAINING AN HONEST TRUE BUSINESS APPROACH.

THE LABEL OPERATES OUT OF MARLAND AND IS STEADILY ON THE RISE. NU LOOK HAS BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE WORKED WITH VETERAN PRODUCER DAVE SNYDER WHO HAS WORKED FOR PLATINUM PLUS ICONIC ACTS LIKE MISSY ELLIOT, ALICIA KEYS, DMX, AND PRAZ OF THE FUGEES — JUST TO NAME A FEW.

THE MISSION OF THE LABEL IS PRECISE AND CLEAR — MAKE QUALITY MUSIC, BE PROFESSIONAL IN ALL THINGS AND SHOW A HIGH LEVEL OF RESPECT FOR THE COMMUNITY. ARITST DEVELOPMENT IS A MAJOR FACTOR AS NU LOOK MAINTAINS A FAMILY ATMOSPHERE WHERE ARTISTS FEEL LIKE HOME.

IN FACT, NU LOOK IS MUCH MORE THAN JUST SIMPLY A RECORD LABEL. TRUE, THE LABEL HOUSES SOME SERIOUS TALENT THAT CAN COMPETE WITH ANY PRO IN THE INDUSTRY, BUT NU LOOK ALSO HELPS PEOPLE IN WAYS THAT MOST IN THE INDUSTRY DO NOT CONSIDER. THE LABEL IS PROUD OF THE FACT THAT THEY RUN A HOMELESS SHELTER WHICH GIVES PEOPLE A CHANCE TO GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AND HAVE A SECOND CHANCE — A TRUE NU LOOK ON LIFE.

THE TALENT BEHIND THE LABEL STARTS WITH CEO/PRODUCER JOHN SPALDING. JOHN SPALDING HAS A MASTERS DEGREE IN BUSINESS. JAMES GIBSON (A.K.A. JIM PHEBE) IS CURRENTLY BUZZING AROUND THE COUNTRY WITH HIS DEBUT ALBUM “A NU LOOK AT THE GAME.” WHILE BLAZES THE TRAIL WITH HIS INFECTIOUS SINGLE “HANDS UP,” THE LABEL HAS A LOT MORE TO OFFER THE WORLD. COMING SOON ARE SMOKING HOT R&B SONGSTRESS TANIKA CAPLE AND LYRICAL MONSTER GATOR (LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY REPRESENT!).

THE LABEL RECENTLY STRUCK A DEAL WITH SAM SNEED (FORMERLY SIGNED TO DEATH ROW RECORDS, 1993) AND HIS LABEL STREET SCHOLARS ENTERTAINMENT. SNEED, A VETERAN IN HIS OWN RIGHT, HAS CO-PRODUCED PLATINUM HITS LIKE “KEEP THEIR HEADS RINGING” ALONGSIDE THE LEGENDARY DR. DRE, IN ADDITION TO G-UNIT, JAY-Z, AND SCARFACE. HE WAS IMMEDIATELY IMPRESSED WITH THE TALENT AND CHARACTER OF NU LOOK RECORDS, WITH BOTH SIDES FORGING A PROMISING WORKING RELATIONSHIP.

NU LOOK ALSO TAKES PRIDE IN THE FACT THAT THE MUSIC IS INTENDED FOR ALL AUDIENCES TO ENJOY — BOTH YOUNG AN OLD — WITHOUT THE NEED FOR EXPLICIT CONTENT LABELS. THE BRAND OF ENTERTAINMENT HAS A UNIVERSAL APPEAL THAT’S DESTINED FOR WIDESPREAD SUCCESS.

IN ADDITION TO HEATING UP THE CLUBS AND THE NET, NU LOOK IS CONSTANTLY ON THE ROAD. WE’VE PERFORMED SHOWCASES IN FRONT OF THE LIKES OF SO SO DEF, ATLANTIC, AND DEF JAM.
