Rolan Bolan -- Son of Legendary Rocker Marc Bolan of T-Rex -- Signs With Multi-Platinum Producer Dito Godwin's New London-Based Label EC3 Records

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2014) - Singer/songwriter Rolan Bolan (http://theofficialrolanbolan.com/) -- son of the late T-Rex frontman and glam-rock legend Marc Bolan and singer and Grammy-nominated Motown songwriter Gloria Jones -- has inked a deal with new London-based label EC3 Records, headed up by veteran rock producer Dito Godwin.

Long a believer that "good music is good music" no matter the genre, Godwin's career as a multi-platinum producer includes sessions with an enviable slate of artists: No Doubt; Motley Crue; KISS members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss; Jack Russell and Great White; late Warrant frontman Jani Lane; and country music legend Charley Pride.

"After collaborating with Rolan over the past few years, I am thrilled to bring his fresh talent and unique sound to my roster of dynamic artists. Rolan and I work very well together, so I'm excited to share his music with the world," Godwin said.

Slated to release his debut album worldwide and tour in the U.K. later this year, Rolan is the third artist to be signed to Godwin's label; Alt/rock band The Brink and singer/songwriter Jordy Leatherland are also signed to EC3.

Rolan, who thinks Interview Magazine was spot on when they described his "laid back with a kick" vibe as "Pina Colada Gasoline," previously released several singles to iTunes in recent months, including "Should I Forget To Mention," "Once In My Life," "Up To Me," and "Trust" which won a Hollywood Music In Media Award (HMMA) for best Alternative Song. There are also YouTube videos available of earlier tracks Rolan recorded, including "Fire In The City" and "Missing Me."

Rolan formed and fronted his first band, The Brothers Bounce, in 1998 with friends from Loyola Marymount University. The group, which toured the U.K. and France, included members of the Black Eyed Peas' first backing band. The singer later toured as a duo with Kyle Mullarkey of the band The Shore.

Godwin, a multi-talented award-winning producer, brings an open-minded, progressive aesthetic to his new endeavor, which he is launching with London businessman Martin Quick. The company, named for the postal code for the financial district where their office is located, has a distribution deal with Bungalo/Universal.
