Patriarch Recordings is an independent record label based out of downtown Brooklyn, home to a unique group of artists. Founded by Fred (FS) Sargolini, Patriarch is a reflection of FS’s impeccable and diverse taste in music and artists. Patriarch Recordings offers artists a supportive, collaborative environment in which to fully realize their art. And the music is bangin’.
After co-founding Ming+FS, and releasing four full-length albums and over
thirty 12" singles, Fred (FS) Sargolini started Patriarch Recordings. Growing out of his passion for music, art, culture and everything in between, FS created Patriarch as an outlet for his own music and creativity and for like minded artists. From the club shaking hip hop of Northern League to the electro party rock of Diet Kong, the electronic madness of The Arch Cupcake to the Bollywood influenced club music of Filmi, Patriarch is home to a diverse group of artists. The common thread that runs through all the artists on Patriarch is vision, passion and great music.
Patriarch is also an outlet for FS’s production, artist development and a creative agency. Placements include TV, film, video games and advertising: CSI, Weeds, Entourage, Sony, Stomp The Yard, The Real World, as well as over 50 different TV shows and films. FS discovered, developed and produced Kirsten Price for Columbia Records, including her hit ‘Magic Tree’ Tree’ featured on the L Word, and he produced and co-Wrote ‘Nice For Me’, the forthcoming single for Hip Hop legend Greg Nice's new album. Recently, he composed and created music for the Middle Men trailer released on Paramount Pictures as well as the original score for the new Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family trailer.
