“Somewhere along the line music became ‘content’… It’s my full intention to bring it back to music again! I believe in the power of song. Under the spell of the right song, passion is within reach…love is close by…and you are not alone! With such potency, music should be treated with care. The sound, the feel, the presentation… everything! It is a medicine. It is a teacher! With Federal Prism I want to make hand-held music, undiminished by the need to make everybody in the world listen at once. The goal is to ride into the sunset, stereo blasting, and all of what’s got you worried will disappear in the rear view mirror! If you can feel what I’m saying, this music is for you.”

     – David Sitek, Founder of Federal Prism Records

Founded by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek and music industry vet Jeff Bowers in 2012, FEDERAL PRISM could be described as a boutique indie, but that would be missing the point. With an impressive slate of releases in the works for 2014 that includes singles from Kelis, Cerebal Ballzy, Freddie Gibbs, Scarlett Johansson, Holly Miranda and TV On The Radio, and an innovative approach to music production and distribution that’s already landed Sitek and Bowers on Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business 2013, Federal Prism is out to re-imagine not only the sound of the day, but also the way music is discovered, created and consumed.
