Your Pop Alternative Source
This debut from LA duo Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards was bold and fearless. It wasn’t just the riotous rock n' roll clatter that was gutsy, though. It was also the messages within the music: an assault on misogyny and sexism in the music industry that sat alongside storming jams about peace, love and understanding.

December 4th, 2013-- Cherrytree Records - in partnership with Interscope Records - is proud to announce the launch of Cherrytree Records France. The French-based A&R and marketing operation will be overseen by Polydor/Universal Music veteran and Cherrytree France head, Guénael "GG" Geay (aka Guena LG). Cherrytree France will look to sign artists from Europe with an eye toward building them in France and taking them onto the international stage. In true Cherrytree spirit, the Paris-based label office will focus on finding and introducing progressive artists and pop alternative music. Signings to Cherrytree Records France already include Skip the Use, Carbon Airways, Julian Perretta and The Young Professionals.
Chairman and founder of Cherrytree Records Martin Kierszenbaum had this to say about the launch: "It is an honor to be able to establish a real home base in France where we've had so much love and support for our progressive pop music over the years. It's also an absolute pleasure to be doing it with my great friend Guenael "GG" Geay whose innovation and musicality have helped Cherrytree and its artists find such a warm and loyal audience in France."
Guenael Geay commented: "Launching Cherrytree Records France is a brilliant opportunity to stretch our artistic offering throughout Polydor and reinforce the bridges between France and international markets. Martin Kierszenbaum is one of the people I trust and admire most in this business. His capacities as a producer and song writer are as impressive as his skills that have guided Cherrytree to such incredible success. What an exciting time."
Founded in 2005 by Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer and label executive Martin Kierszenbaum, Cherrytree Records has had a huge impact on modern pop, launching the 15 million album selling Lady Gaga in 2009 as well as guiding the flourishing US careers of Feist, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Robyn, La Roux and…Continue
Sorry it’s taken me a while to post the new edition of “Martin’s Photo Blog.” Although, I haven’t posted in a bit, I have been busy snapping photos. The Thanksgiving weekend finally gave me the time to organize and publish them. And, here goes: My official post of “Martin’s Autumn 2013 Photo Blog.”
These shots cover some of my movements over the last 3 months of September, October and November 2013 (and a little bit of August). As with my previous photo blog entries, I did my best to capture the up-close and rare, musical moments that I’m privileged enough to witness and share with you here on www.CherrytreeRecords.com. With my accompanying captions, I also try to convey the buzz and excitement I get to experience every day working with the extraordinary artists at Cherrytree.
Ivy Levan, Gramercy Hotel, NYC, Aug 23, 2013 - Ivy and band dispense a set of lively swamp-hop for the chic New York City crowd. The show included her rousing live rendition of her signature song “Hot Damn.” Check out the video here and her acoustic version at The Cherrytree House here.
On a hooks-per-minute level, Settle is right up there with the best of Britney, Gaga, and Beyoncé. What makes Disclosure considerably deeper is the way every element has been honed to a level that rivals the most tweaked-out underground techno. There's a luxurious bounty of space here, and not just in the silence between typically staccato notes. With ping-ponging rhythms that ricochet from speaker to speaker, Settle is one of the most stereo-flaunting records since the space-age-bachelor-pad days of Esquivel. And because there are fully-fledged tunes here, Disclosure's harmonic motion actually measures up to their hi-fi vibrations. - Spin.com
So how is your tour going to pan out for you and the band? Will you be Djing and playing originals?
Actually, it’s all fully live. It’s a mix of the original material and remixes. When I started thinking about the tour– the goal was to eventually play more original stuff. Most people know the remixes though so it just makes sense to play some of that stuff as well. It’s a fully live set with a four piece rock band. We have a light show, a visual show with it as well. We’re nearly four days into it and we’re all having a blast.

"Settle sounds like an anthology of great club singles, using guest vocalists and stylistic jumps to flow like an expertly curated party tape." - RollingStone.com
