A Brief History
1 2 One was first established in the mid 90’s.
Paul set about learning all he could about the music industry promoting events in London and moving into tour management for a number of large international recording artists. In the mid 90’s Paul became the Managing Director of the independent Record label Freakstreet Records that was partnered with then clients D-Influence Productions. We went on to sign the likes of Shola Ama, Elisabeth Troy, Sean Escoffery, Shortee blitz to name a few. Freakstreet records was named the 3rd most popular record label in 1998 next to 1: Bad Boy Records and 2: La Face Records in the Blues & Soul magazine readers poll/.
In the late 90’s the record label entered into a label deal with Warner Music for Shola Ama who Paul also managed to global stardom.
Splitting with Shola and D Influence just before Shola’s second album was to prove a huge mistake for the recording artist after winning multiple awards worldwide for her multi million selling debut album that Paul also co executive produced. Freakstreet Records closed within 2 years after Paul left the company as the Managing Director.
Paul moved to LA for a year and returned to the UK to join Big Life Music and Management as A&R Manager for the publishing company. At Big Life Paul would work with songwriters, producers and recording artists for 7 years. Setting up and managing Big Life’s international sub publishing arrangements world wide. Here Paul would help drive the publishing company to the number 1 position in the UK for independent music publishers for 2006-2007.
Leaving Big Life after its sale to Universal Music Publishing Paul re established to 1 2 One Entertainment and set about building what is now a globally respected management, production and publishing company. Over the years we have worked with many great producers, songwriters and recording artists, helping them to major success. Here are just a few that we have worked with over the years.
