Who is Elektra?
For seven decades, Elektra has challenged the status quo and made history as home to icons and iconoclasts alike. In 1950, Jac Holzman founded the independent label while still in college. Building a catalog of landmark albums, it galvanized the legacies of artists such as Carly Simon, The Doors, MC5, Metallica, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Queen, and The Stooges, to name a few. As part of Elektra Entertainment (formerly Elektra Music Group) since 2018, the label’s modern-day roster includes Brandi Carlile, Christina Perri, Fitz and The Tantrums, jxdn, Kaleo, NEEDTOBREATHE, The Highwomen, Tones and I, and many more. Elektra marked its 70th anniversary in 2020 as it continues to shape popular culture without compromise.
