Sony Music Australia has launched a domestic Masterworks division for Australia headed by Robert Rigby.

The iconic Masterworks label began in 1927 as Columbia Masterworks.

Denis Handlin, Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand and President Asia, said in a statement “At Sony Music Australia, we strive to be market leaders in all genres of music. The launch of Masterworks as a domestic A&R label is part of our strategic plan to deliver more quality projects suitable for the discerning consumers in the adult contemporary, crossover and soundtrack music market.”

Denis Handlin announced label veteran and Ambition Records founder Robert Rigby will head up the new division with a tribute to the ANZACs ‘Remembrance’ to be released as the first title for the label in Australia.

‘Remembrance’ will be released in a lead-up to ANZAC Day 2017. The album will feature a brand new song by Russell Morris ‘White Feather’, written for the project and with all label and publishing royalties donated to Soldier On supporting returned soldiers and veterans.

‘Remembrance’ was produced by James Kempster.

The ‘Remembrance’ album will also feature the last recording by the late Jon English and a haunting performance of ‘The Last Post’ by James Morrison.
