The Minions and Happy Cappy Productions are in negotiations for a multi-album deal. Although courted by two "major" record companies, the band members have decided that they would prefer to "...work with a smaller company that deals with us on a personal level." -- November 11, 1997
The Darling Minions have re-signed to Happy Cappy Productions! On the eve of their first major European tour (and on the birthday of HCP founder Anita Williams) Jamie, Marley, Lisa, and Reeve annouced that they had inked a new deal that not only allows them to stay with their record company of origin, but one that gives them the ultimate desire of every artist -- Complete Artistic Freedom! While the Minions have been able to "write their own ticket" the codification of such a deal is mostly unheard of in the music industry. Says Anita, "I have complete faith in this band and in their abilities. I would never wish to infringe upon their freedoms and I am more than happy to put it in writing." With their future secure, the Darling Minions are looking forward to starting their European tour and to sharing their experiences with you in a new journal format that will debut on February 6th!
