Company history

Lava Records was established in 1995 as a joint venture between Atlantic Records and Jason Flom, who began his career with Atlantic Records. One of the most accomplished A&R people in the music industry, in his early career Flom was responsible for signing such artists as Zebra, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, White Lion, and Tori Amos, as well as helping launch the careers of Stone Temple Pilots and Collective Soul. Since Lava's inception, among the artists the label has brought to prominence are Authority Zero, Kid Rock, Matchbox Twenty, Uncle Kracker, Smile Empty Soul, Sugar Ray, The Corrs, Vanessa Williams, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Simple Plan.

In August 2005, Flom resigned as chairman and chief executive of Atlantic Records, ending a 26 year career within the company. Flom was named chairman and CEO of Virgin Records U.S., following the departure of Matt Serletic that same month. In October 2005, Warner Music Group combined Lava Records with its Atlantic Records Group. Warner originally planned the move following Flom's resignation.
