Belgium is where it all began for [PIAS] in 1982 when Kenny Gates and Michel Lambot started their own label in the Brussels basement of Kenny’s parents.
Since then [PIAS] has grown into one of Belgium’s largest and most dynamic music companies with a team of 40 people now based at the iconic building of the former socialist newspaper ‘Le Peuple’ in the heart of Brussels.
The [PIAS] office in Brussels serves both as the administrative HQ of the [PIAS] Group and as the home of [PIAS] Belgium, the longest established team in the [PIAS] family.
Over the years, [PIAS] has played a key part in the Belgian success of acts such as Agnes Obel, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Editors, Front 242, Laurent Garnier, Moby, Muse, Pixies, The Prodigy, Soulwax/2ManyDJ’s, Tom Waits and many more.
The Belgian [PIAS] team provides label management, marketing, sales and in-house promotion services for both the Flemish and French speaking part of the country: a unique offering in the market.
[PIAS] Belgium also has its own local A&R team and one of the most successful local artist rosters in the market with acts such as Alice On The Roof, Arno, Bazart, Balthazar, Blanche, Daan/Dead Man Ray, Ghinzu, Girls In Hawaii, Glints, L’Or Du Commun, Melanie de Biaso, Newmoon, Oscar & The Wolf, Portland, Scylla, Tristan and Whispering Sons.
