Seymour Stein, also the founder of the legendary Sire Records, is spearheading the relaunch of Blue Horizon in partnership with Fat Possum.
Both Seymour and Matthew Johnson from Fat Possum had some fun things to say about the new working relationship:
Seymour Stein said, “I have long been aware of Matthew Johnson and Fat Possum, all the more so following my daughter Mandy Stein’s documentary You See Me Laughin’ on the label back in its early days. I have enjoyed watching Fat Possum grow into the great and well-respected label it is today. I am excited looking forward for our two labels to work together and bring this fabulous music into the marketplace.”
Johnson added, “Seymour’s great. He’s one of the three or four people on the business side that are fun to talk to. He’s left places I’ll never get to… It’s a real honor to work with him and Blue Horizon.”
