Milan is a proud founder of Guin Records with his sister/co-founder, Misha. Guin Records is a fully operational independent record label based in California that provides elite quality production, promotion, and distribution for undiscovered artists around the world. Together, the Kordestani dynamic duo bring unique perspectives to the music industry, and they are both personally involved in working with each Guin artist to use storytelling to shift public discourse on important social issues.
What Makes Guin Records Different
Guin is a record label that prioritizes our artists as human beings and agents of their own destinies. It’s a “boutique” label approach: Milan and his team work to develop the artists they represent, and customize deals and working relationships around each artist uniquely. Guin artists own their own masters, and label and artist cut the profits at a fair 50/50 – nearly unheard of in the industry.
More importantly, Guin’s artists are human beings, not commodities or products. Milan and Misha support their purpose-driven music, even for artists just getting started. Guin offers wellness stipends for all of its artists to support strong mental and physical health. Guin offers free legal counsel to artists who can’t afford it and want support with music industry contracts. Under the guidance of Michael Bearden and Blaise DeAngelo, Guin has become a unique, purpose-driven label that places respect for the artist and the artistic process at the forefront of all efforts.
Music is a team sport, and a record label is defined by the creativity of its artists. Here’s some of the talent in our line-up.
