The heartbeat of Independent Music

Independent. It’s an important word for all of us at [PIAS] – one that defines our company culture, our ownership structure and our entire mindset.

[PIAS] was founded in 1982 by two guys – Kenny Gates and Michel Lambot – in a basement in Brussels.

Today, with a 250-strong team, spread across 15 offices around the globe, [PIAS] champions and supports independent music across our unrivalled international network.

We are comprised of three key divisions: our recordings operation, with Play It Again Sam at its heart – the iconic independent label that started the [PIAS] story; our family of associated labels, [PIAS] Cooperative; and our Artist & Label Services division, which provides a menu of digital and physical services to an exceptional roster of labels.

We fully believe that music makes the world a better place. But we also believe the world should give better music the place it deserves.
