Salaam’s brand Louder Than Life is not only dedicated to developing and finding emerging talent, the brand also partners with forward-thinking brands and relying on the street and people to help find different forms of talent. “I have a sweet spot for singer-songwriters and for people who make music that is outside of the norm,” says Salaam. “I will continue to provide that option for artists out there so people don’t feel as if they are required to fit the mold of today’s pop trends. I look forward to giving more artists a shot at doing what they do best not just for myself, but for the culture.”
Salaam Remi is dedicated to artist development and making sure his artists feel special in their own right. He most notably worked with Nas, Amy Winehouse, Fergie, Estelle, Miguel, Alicia Keys and he is responsible for creating and executive producing the Fugees.
