Wind-up Records, one of the largest independently-owned music companies, was founded in 1997.  The company was responsible for establishing and breaking many multi-platinum and diamond artists over the years. Wind-up Records continues to develop and build a great young roster of alternative artists, such as Civil Twilight, The Virginmarys, Young Guns, The Griswolds, Strange Talk and The Revivalists. The roster also includes amazing singer-songwriters Five for Fighting, Jillette Johnson and Genevieve. True to its history, great rockers like The Darkness, Filter, Aranda and our newest signing, Crobot, will keep Wind-up Records a powerhouse in the rock world. The Company also has Wind-up Publishing, which includes many of its label signings and 251 Management which represents careers of music artists and television personalities.


Wind-up Publishing is an independent music publisher under label Wind-up Records.  We’re committed to a small roster of the most talented writers. This allows our team to give each of them the feedback they need, when they need it. We love writers that are both innovators and collaborators, who inspire one another and are always ready to lend a hand to each other when they need that outside ear.

We keep our writers busy in all genres, around the world and involved in projects through Wind-up Records. As an alternative, we also have multiple TV partners with whom our writers work with to create custom material.
