Cardiff-based indie label Turnstile Music has extended its deal with Universal’s label services division Caroline to include the US and Canada. Which means the deal now covers the entire world. Rejoice!

Says Caroline President Dominic Pandiscia: “Caroline is thrilled to have the opportunity to help launch Turnstile Music in North America. The artistry and connection of their roster to the North American market was clearly visible at their SXSW showcase this year. We are looking forward to helping Turnstile and all affiliated artists realise their creative vision in partnership with the Caroline team”.

Turnstile founders Alun Llwyd and Kevin Tame then mumbled quietly together: “We are proud to be joining forces with Caroline in the US and are already impressed by the energy, enthusiasm and creativity they have shown towards the records scheduled for this year. We are fulfilling a dream by launching Turnstile US and are particularly thrilled to find a partner in Caroline that shares our enthusiasm for the records and what we can achieve in the US over the next few years”.

The first US release to be affected by the deal will be the second solo album from former Girls frontman Christopher Owens.
