Alexandra Patsavas Starts Chop Shop Records

Our old friend Alexandra Patsavas, the music supervisor for the OC, Carnivale, and Grey’s Anatomy, is forming her own record label, Chop Shop Records, as an imprint of Atlantic Records.

“A label seems like a natural extension of what a music supervisor does . . . You can come across things very early, and there have been bands along the way I would have loved to have worked with more closely.”

According to Billboard:

No signings have been announced yet. Patsavas is aggressively on the hunt for acts. During a recent trip to New York, she attended nine different artist showcases.

She says Chop Shop’s direction will bear a strong resemblance to the creative direction she has pursued in her music supervisory role. […]

“I’ve always been interested in indie rock, and it’s the kind of music I tend to enjoy placing in the shows that I work on,” she says. “(The label) will be an extension of the kinds of artists that have been featured on ‘The OC’ and ‘Gray’ soundtracks. Many of those artists have been unsigned or signed to small labels.”

I wonder if she plans on hiring Seth Cohen as an A&R Rep…
