Tommy Boy

Tommy Boy

Profile:
Tommy Boy is a US label that was established in 1981 by Tom Silverman.

In 1985, Warner Bros. Records acquired 50% of the label and made Tom Silverman and Monica Lynch vice presidents of its new partner. However, Tommy Boy preferred to use independent distribution instead of the distribution channels owned by Warner Bros. Records' parent, Warner Music (then WEA Corp.). Five years later, Warner Bros. acquired the remaining 50% of the label. In 1995, following the controversy following the backlash against Warner Music’s gangsta artists, Silverman bought back 50% of his label. In February 2002, because Warner Music wanted larger unit sales, Tom Silverman bought back the remaining half of Tommy Boy and made it independent again. As part of the break-up, Warner Music was given first dibs to acquire the contracts of the the artists signed to the label and became owner of the master recordings that Tommy Boy released until that date.

Note:
Historically, this label was not to be used on Discogs; releases bearing the Tommy Boy logo were only to be filed under either Tommy Boy Music or Tommy Boy Entertainment. Now, however, it is appropriate to use it as the label for releases bearing the Tommy Boy logo. Additional companies may still be entered.
