Toronto, June 20 (IANS) The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor Johnny Depp is planning to launch his own record label.
According to sources, Depp has founded Unison Music and has hired talent scouts to search for new talents in London.
“Johnny has always been passionate about music. He’s taking a really hands-on approach to signing acts,” torontosun.com quoted a source as saying.
“Obviously he can’t get to as many gigs as he would like, but he’s got a good team around him and will personally vet any signings that they make,” the source added.
The actor had initially embarked on a music career when he left school, playing with several rock groups before turning his attention to acting.
He is a big music fan and recently helped British band Babybird produce a new record by funding their studio and even playing on several of their tracks.
