Sweden Music Group:
With offices in both Sweden and the U.S. (along with world-wide distribution), Sweden Music Group (SMG) offers an international - presence on and off the stage.

The SMG professionals were handpicked by founder Robert Jakobsson - making for a staff with a great degree of music industry experience. This experience has provided each member a chance to bring their extensive skill set to a new dynamic music venture.

The SMG team understands positive artist and distributor relationships - right down to music retailers and customers. A preparedness to help push artist releases in the right direction, with a solid grasp on financial planning, is met with close cooperation with everyone involved in each project - as the company is in the midst of working with such world class acts as DeathDealer, Cage, and Sworn Amongst.

A restoration of confidence in the music business is a top-priority. SMG wants everyone to know the amount of blood, sweat, tears, heart and soul that goes into each and every project that we work on. Giving back to the artist and ensuring the strongest music releases will mark SMG's ongoing success.

Mission Statement
The solid foundation of Sweden Music Group is true dedication and emotional bonds to everything regarding music. Unlike the classic idea of "management" and "record labels," is managed by strong-minded and fiercely driven people - with great experience in this industry.

SMG is of the point of view within the music industry that stands for change, and will see it happen. The basic idea is constant expansion in all areas of the business. The bigger and stronger the network is, the more we can support the business side of the music industry in favor of our clients (which includes such world class acts as DeathDealer, Cage, and Sworn Amongst to start).

Everything states above combined with a passion for making different projects a reality for ourselves, as well as for people around us, we aim to be a record label making a difference.

We are dedicated to helping and nurturing our artists - not limit them. Join the SMG team and you will not be disappointed!
