Mascot Label Group has announced the signing of Jordan Rudess. He is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy-nominated prog band Dream Theater. The good news is that he will be releasing his new solo album.
He has been the full-time keyboardist with Dream Theater since the recording of 1999’s “Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory.” He has pursued numerous collaborations and solo projects throughout his career, beginning with his solo debut “Listen” (1993). A relentless innovator, Rudess released “All That Is Now” (2013)”, a solo acoustic piano recording which works interactively with his app, “Jordan Rudess Explores” and his orchestral album, “Explorations” which features a 50 piece orchestra. “The Unforgotten Path” (2015) was a collection of original tracks as well as a collection of acoustic piano covers of songs that have inspired his musical life.
With the Mascot Label Group I have found the perfect home for myself and my music. The Mascot Team are bright, dedicated, inspired and are clearly passionate about music and the industry. They create a climate of respect and support for the artist and I couldn’t be more excited about becoming a Mascot artist.
