Six60 and Sony Music New Zealand have teamed up to create a brand new label, Massive Records, and today release the very first album.
Overseen by the members of Six60, with three signed Kiwi acts on its current roster, the label is a passion project created to foster and nurture musical talent.
Now, Sony and the band are delighted to announce that one of their signed artists has released their self-titled debut album.

Alongside their album, they also released a new collaboration single with Six60 titled Always Beside You.
Based in Six60’s own Auckland studio, Coterie – along with singer-songwriters Coyle and Hina – worked alongside each member of the hit New Zealand band of Matiu Walters, Chris Mac, Marlon Gerbes , Ji Fraser, Hoani Matenga and Eli Paewai.
With the help of label manager Aroha Rerekura, the artists create their own music under the direction of Six60 and Sony’s marketing and promotional team.
“We are thrilled to finally announce Massive Records, an artist-run label for artists in the modern world,” Walters said in a statement.
“Twelve years ago we started our own label out of necessity, which allowed us to share our music with the world and gave us years of experience in controlling every aspect of our journey.
“We’ve always wanted to share this knowledge and use our position to help the next generation of artists and that’s why we started Massive Records. We love music and we love seeing artists’ dreams come true.
Alongside Coterie, the label has also signed singer-songwriters Hina and Spencer Coyle.
