Xist Music, founded by Terverius Black, Sean Simmonds, and John Weston Jr. was established to become one of the leading inspirational entertainment, lifestyle and media companies, with properties in music, film, publishing, media, and other inspirational urban lifestyle products. Xist Music engages in the business of acquiring, producing, marketing, and distributing inspirational urban, hip hop and pop artists and has established a strong reputation for putting their artists on touring platforms that have tapped continents and is continuing to expand across the globe.
Now apart of the Malaco Music Group family which comprises recording studios, record labels, music publishing companies, direct marketing operations, and distribution services, the Malaco Music Group takes original music from concept to consumer. Malaco has been making and marketing definitive southern soul, blues, and gospel music since 1968. Building on this firm foundation, Malaco’s expanded repertoire also includes jazz, urban, Christian, and children’s music. Malaco is home to many recording artists and songwriters, and owns a catalog of thousands of original recordings and song copyrights.
