Berlin, 26 October 2022 – Sony Music Entertainment Continental Europe and Africa has today announced it has entered into a new joint venture agreement with management and record label ONEWAY.

ONEWAY. Records is founded by music executives and brothers, Josh and Sam Fluxgold. The two are former managers of Dennis Lloyd, discovering the Israeli singer and songwriter in 2017 and enjoying historic international success for the Israeli artist with over two billion streams, various Platinum and Gold records across several markets and multiple sold-out world tours across US, Europe and Australia.
