Jonas Group Launches Red Van Records – Billboard


Jonas Group Entertainment (JGE) and the company’s founder Kevin Jonas Sr. have launched the Nashville-based Red Van Records, under the leadership of CEO Phil Guerini.

The label’s first signing is Nashville singer-songwriter Levi Hummon, who’ll release his first song under the label on Oct. 27, with a new version of his Walker Hayes collaboration “Paying For It.” Dan Pearson‘s Lakeside Entertainment Group will provide label services for Red Van Records.

JGE was founded in 2005 while Jonas was managing his sons, the sibling music group Jonas Brothers. The namesake for Red Van Records is the red van that the Jonas family originally toured the country in. “I can’t begin to guess how many hours and miles we logged driving the guys around the country in that van, but it represents the commitment you make to be in the music industry,” said Jonas Sr. in a statement. “We were always building and in motion and that’s the philosophy of Red Van Records.”

“With the values and ideals that are the foundation of Red Van Records, Levi is the perfect artist to launch our label,” Guerini said in a statement. “He is so well respected in the music community as a complete artist, and he has been tireless in his pursuit of music and taking it to the fans on the road. It’s the unrelenting pace and ‘firsts’ of the early days that may seem small at the time, but like the red van, they are the start of something truly special.”

“So excited to be working with Kevin, Phil, and honored to be Red Van Records first signing,” Hummon added. “I’m so grateful to them for dreaming big with me and I couldn’t imagine my music in better hands. Family is everything to me and they have made feel like part of their family since day one. This next chapter is going to be a wild ride.”

Jonas Group Entertainment’s artist roster includes Bailee Madison, Darby, Franklin Jonas, Harper Grace, Levi Hummon, LIVVIA, Mallary Hope, Mandy Harvey, Tayler Buono and The Band Light. Meanwhile, Jonas Group Publishing’s roster includes Franklin Jones and Terri Jo Box.

Hummon, the son of songwriter Marcus Hummon, previously issued his debut self-titled EP in 2016 through Big Machine Label Group, followed by 2018’s Patient via Iconic Records.
