ROCKTOPIA RECORDS is the brainchild of rock music moguls Bruce Mee and Keiran Dargen, the team who bring you the globally renowned FIREFEST Festivals in the UK.
TEN’s new album will be the label’s debut album release and sees TEN continue from strength to strength onto what will be their 11th studio album.
In a press release TEN lead singer and founder member GARY HUGHES stated – “I am very pleased indeed to sign TEN to such a pro-active multi-album situation. The label directors and myself are extremely like-minded over direction and together we intend to raise the bar for the music genre as a whole.”
GARY HUGHES’ music has already been historically synonymous with launching two legendary labels. His solo albums and the first Ten albums were the first iconic releases for NOW AND THEN RECORDS, and TEN’s double live opus NEVER SAY GOODBYE was the first ever release for FRONTIERS RECORDS (FRCD 001).
The new contract offers GARY the opportunity to work closely and for the first time outside the live arena with Keiran Dargen. It also offers him the opportunity to renew his association with label director Bruce Mee, the one time co-owner of Now And Then Records.
A very happy GARY HUGHES added “The artistic and creative freedom afforded to me by the ROCKTOPIA guys is exhilarating to say the least. In return I hope that our music can be responsible for launching a third influential label into the genre. I look forward to beginning the new album imminently. We will keep the fans posted on all such things as they develop. This is an exciting time for Ten and our fans alike ” We will bring you more news as the situation unfolds.
