(Est. 2007) – The Hear Music label was created as a joint venture between Concord Music Group and Starbucks in 2007, beginning with the signing of the one and only Paul McCartney. In addition to McCartney, Hear Music represents such musical icons as Carole King, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, and Paul Simon. Hear Music also fosters the development of highly creative artists and projects such as Sia, Playing For Change, and multi-artist recordings such as Rave on Buddy Holly (featuring The Black Keys, Florence + the Machine, She & Him, Modest Mouse, and many others). Hear Music’s philosophy, both ageless and dynamic, results in compelling music choices for consumers.
