Magnetic Eye Records was founded in 2011 by Greatdayforup and Ironweed guitarist Mike Vitali. The company grew out of a lifelong love of musicianship, artistry and study of the record business, and was driven by the belief that guiding musicians to survive and thrive should be a key responsibility of any record label. Throughout the label’s growth and success, Mike has sought to leverage his industry knowledge to provide artists with an understanding of how to map out successful careers.
With a roster that currently includes Elephant Tree, Summoner, Domkraft, Year of the Cobra, Low Flying Hawks, Ghastly Sound, I Am Become Death, The Nopes, Sunflo'er and WhiteNails, Magnetic Eye Records continues to support emerging artists and their amazing music while revamping perceptions of what record labels are and can be.
Mark has over 10 years of experience designing for the music and entertainment industry. He has a great understanding of how to translate music visually. He's currently the Lead Designer at The Quilted Squirrel, a full service advertising agency located in Western New York.
