Rethinking structures, taking a closer look at details and breaking old patterns are just as important to the group’s philosophy as demonstrating that it’s possible to work honestly, fairly and transparently to create the best solutions and a new model of working for the music industry. These values form the basis and unites all departments in Filter Music Group. In practice, this means that Filter Music Group considers respectful cooperation the primary basis for clear communication and equal rights- artists, partners, employees and confidants are of crucial importance here.
Visionaries are the motor of change. Filter Music Group considers itself and partners as motors of change with influence on the landscape of the music-industry in the 21st century. The corporate identity of the entire group is to create the right path for each individual act. Filter Music Group faces this challenge daily, and collaborates to find the right approach with partners and confidants. Specifically, this means analyzing and following less conventional approaches, and rethinking old structures. All of this is driven by an urge for innovation, a childish sense of curiosity and the vision to change the music landscape of the 21st century.
Filter Music Group was founded in 2015 by Jorin Zschiesche – founder and captain of one of Europe’s most prestigious digital distributors, recordJet – and Tobias and Philipp Herder, who previously founded the successful label, Lichtdicht. While Tobias Herder worked as label manager and publisher, Philipp Herder specialized in the booking and live performance department. Collectively, the three founders can show for the global success of artists like Milky Chance, Alice Merton or James Hersey. Despite their success, they realized that they were not aligned with many existing values in the music industry. The result of this dissonance is Filter Music Group: an independent, international music company that supports the desires and needs of artists at various points in their careers, dealing with artists, partners and employees in a fair, open and transparent way.
