JMWest Entertainment

Our Mission

JMWest Entertainment is a close-knit, yet international, independent record label that focuses on individualized artist development, honoring the personal and professional identity of each artist while building a strategic platform focused on long-term and commercial success; we’ve earned our strong reputation by insisting on quality, excellence and integrity at every turn.


Our Values

Quality & Excellence

We take our time, roll our sleeves up and put in our every effort to ensure that each artist has their best chance for success.  Our Artist Development oriented approach is detailed, thorough and highly individualized, with heavy emphasis on sound and brand development.  Jean-Michel Soupraya oversees every project with a relentless insistence on “hit songs.”  The other professionals we have the privilege of collaborating with are, without exception, well respected, and often the best in the business. 

“We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle


Integrity & Vision

Our commitment to personal and professional integrity, what is best for the project and the artist, is reflected in all of our business practices – from day-to-day operations to our artist contracts.  Always with a long-term vision, we insist on a win/win environment where our success is cultivated through agility, audacity, strategic thinking, targeted and measured execution, and industry savvy.  

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and ability to affect those around him positively.” – Bob Marley


Partnership & Voice

It is important for us to be sure that artists keep their own voice – that the brand we build together is one that they can grow with throughout their career.  We have crafted an individualized formula for successfully developing and launching new artists with a proven long-term tattoo proof brand and sound.  We help artists establish a solid platform, cultivate their professional identity, discover who they are and then convey that through their music.  

“Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing.” – Quincy Jones


International & Close knit

With affiliations in France, London, Montreal, and throughout the continental US, JMWest Entertainment genuinely focuses on creating music with international appeal.  Working with talent from around the globe, we weave unique sounds and diversified ideas into mainstream commercial records.  The diversity is reflected throughout our entire team – where the friendly, supportive, extended-family-like culture serves to ensure we are always unified, coordinated, and firing on all cylinders.
