WaveView Productions is a label offshoot of famed music man Chuck Plotkin’s years of pinnacle experience working with the best singer-songwriters in Pop music’s history. These production credits include artists such as Bob Dylan and Plotkin’s over 22 years of producing megastar Bruce Springsteen. Being a true producer’s producer, the artists WaveView Productions is seeking to sign and release on About Records will surely reflect on Plotkin’s already legendary musical track record, i.e., great artistry combined with great record making.
Rob Fraboni is the producer of such artists as The Band, Bonnie Raitt and The Rolling Stones, as well as Chicago’s Nick Tremulis and young Irish alternative rock newcomers Lucas. Mr. Fraboni says his style is about “feeling and sound” and his artist signings will be about “the truth in music”. Since he’s managed to get Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and gospel music loving Levon Helm to work together on his latest tribute to guitar great Hubert Sumlin, we expect Mr. Fraboni to bring that “truth in music”, and hits, to the world on About Records.
Nashville’s David Malloy is the recipient of an extraordinary forty Number One Billboard Awards. In Mr. Malloy’s own words, “I believe in the power of a good song in the hands of an inspired artist.” His work has included veteran country greats such as Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Rodney Crowell, Tanya Tucker, and Rosanne Cash. In addition, Mr. Malloy has discovered and developed many new artists who have gone on to sell millions of records, such as newcomers Billy Gilman, Andy Griggs, Darle Singletary, Jeff Bates and Mindy McCready. As the son of one of the top recording engineers in the world (Malloy’s father recorded over 5,000 records for over 150 artists ranging from Elvis Presley to Frank Sinatra), Mr. Malloy is conversant in both Country and Pop and understands how to bring them together to achieve volume record sales. Mr. Malloy won his first BMI country songwriters award at the age of 15, and at the age of 18 he won again for Then You Walk In. After numerous early successes writing for, recording, and producing Eddie Rabbitt, Mr. Malloy worked in the A&R department of Columbia/Epic Records and then ran the Nashville division of Electra Records. Most recently, Mr. Malloy was a producer at Electra Records in Los Angeles.
