Beacon Records was founded by Christopher Lavinio in August of 2010. His experience and love for music has enabled him to successfully create a network within the music industry.

This company strives for excellence and the hope that it will inspire young musicians to pursue a career in the performing arts.
Beacon Records started as a small company that would sign artists to generate popular music. The term popular music has become a generic term and has become incredibly watered down over the years. Beacon Records wants to try and revive this genre, and explore it’s sub-genres and how to utilize all of them - particularly a revival of popular R&B and soul.
With these basics, we at Beacon Records hope to incorporate these into our modern digitally enhanced world, while still preserving the mood and emotion of the song. With these tools that our modern world gives us, we hope to generate truly memorable and classic music that will last a lifetime.
