Oglio Entertainment is a twenty year old independent label based in Torrance, California, consisting of the imprints: Oglio Records (Rock, Reissues), Oglio Comedy (Stand Up and Musical Comedy) Glue Factory Records (Alternative Rock) and DMAFT Records (Rap & Hip-Hop). Our growth has been significant enough to earn Oglio a position on Inc. Magazine’s 1998 listing of the 500 fastest growing companies in America. Oglio was started in a spare bedroom in 1993 by music fanatic Carl Caprioglio. Under Mr. Caprioglio’s watch, Oglio has achieved worldwide recognition as a successful niche marketer of audio products. Oglio releases have received acclaim and significant sales success including a Billboard Top 50 hit benefiting the Make A Wish Foundation, and projects with Brian Wilson, Cyndi Lauper, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, Nerf Herder, Parry Gripp, Kool Keith, Ultramagnetic MCs, Rob Schneider, Jackie Martling, Andy Dick and George Lopez.
Oglio has established licensing relationships with most of the major labels including Sony/BMG, EMI-Capitol, Warner Music, and Universal. In addition to traditional music markets, Oglio has cultivated licensing relationships with The Coca-Cola Corporation and Hallmark Inc. for music products. Oglio has an excellent reputation and is well known for producing high quality packages. We bring our substantial experience to every new project.
Marketing and promotion are handled in-house by Oglio’s staff. Independent contractors are retained for retail promotion, radio promotion and publicity campaigns. Distribution in the USA and Canada is provided by INgrooves Fontana. Oglio has worldwide export relationships for physical products and worldwide deals with INgrooves Fontana reaching over 100 digital outlets for downloads, ring tones and new digital media. Oglio has the distribution reach of a major label with the attitude and focus of an independent label. With ambitious plans for new projects, Oglio is poised for continued growth and future success.
