Introduction

PHARAOH INT'L RECORDS is an independent record label located in Knoxville, Tennessee (USA), with Steinwood Music Publishing (BMI) and Goliath Alliance Group (ASCAP) as PHARAOH subsidiaries.

PHARAOH INT'L RECORDS and Country Note Connection magazine were the first to be established in 1993 by international recording artist, lecturer, & actor, Tom Woodard, and Woodard's personal manager of twenty years, Bob Stein.

PHARAOH INT'L RECORDS originally specialized in only COUNTRY MUSIC (both traditional and "new" country) with distribution focus centered within the foreign market. But, in JANUARY, 2000, Pharaoh International expanded its scope to include other genres, including rock, pop, adult contemporary, r&b, etc. The first artist signed to Pharaoh in the new Millennium was non-country (pop-rock), singer/songwriter, Dain Carlton, with a release on the Pharaoh label in April, 2000 entitled, "SEPARATE SKIES".

Since Pharaoh's original inception in 1993, numerous successful country and pop/rock artists have had highly successful releases on the PHARAOH label, including new as well as recognized seasoned independent artists as: PAUL MATEKI, BARBARA MORRISON, BOB BERNSTEIN, LOLA DAVIS, JENNY RICHARDS, CHARLIE KYLES, GARRY JOHNSON, P.J. PRICE, DONNA VALENCE, DEBBIE COLLINS, TOM WOODARD, SONNY MARTIN, FRANK DUNAGAN, KRISTENE LOUIS, JESS McENTYRE, PHILLIP CLARKSON, TRACEY LYNNE, TOM STANKO, VIC CARROLL, LYNN JOHNSON, JESSE WILSON, JOHNNY B, PAUL COROTHERS, TONY GARRON, JINNEY McCLAIN, ADELA ROSE & MARIE, RUTHANNE TAITANO, WILLIAM RAY, JERRY HUGHES, C.J. BONE, JEFF BEREZIN, SPYDER BLUE, BRIAN GALLOWAY, DONNA BECKETT, SABINAS REX, JULI MANERS, J. THOMAS and HIS ROUGH RIDERS, GENE AUSTIN and NEVADA THE BAND, JOHN MOORE, GAIL BENTLY, SHANNON MOCK, J. MAX McKEE, KEVIN STONEROCK, DAIN CARTLTON, GARY ROLF DANIELS, and more.

While most all specially screened artists have done exceedingly well on receiving airplay, several of these embraced the market (e.g. Lynn Johnson, Garry Johnson, Tom Woodard, P.J. Price, Jess McEntyre, Lola Davis, Kristene Louis, Paul Mateki, etc.) with constant chart action in the top-20 on such recognized and reliable charts as the European Country Music Association (ECMA) chart, GSCMA, etc. In one month alone, SIX ARTISTS FROM OUR #4 GRC VOLUME RELEASE HIT THE TOP-30 EUROPEAN INDIE CHART, AND ONE ARTIST (Jess McEntyre) MADE IT TO THE OFFICIAL PAN-EUPOPEAN TOP-50 CHART (with predominately major acts), while artist Paul Mateki has been a number one favorite (topping the charts) in Europe for the past few years (on several labels) and Gary Rolf Daniels was reported (from volume #5 in summer, 1999) as one of the most often played new artists in Europe. While Woodard, himself, is a recording artist - he has long been a popular traditionalist among countless D.J.'s in both Europe and the U.S.A. on those radio stations that specialize in the more traditional formats.

In addition to its solo artists single & album projects' success rate (e.g. Charlie Kyles hit #5 in Billboard with "It's Taken Years To Call It A Day"; Tony Garron hit the top-30 album playlist chart with his CD album, "Stop The Rain"), Pharaoh International is also highly reputable and well known for its successful "GOLD RUSH COUNTRY" compilation CD series, of which six volumes were produced from 1995 to 2000. Volume One of this series won Pharaoh "ALBUM OF THE YEAR" in 1995 from the Country Music Associations of America organization. Other awards presented to Pharaoh International Records and artists who have recorded for Pharaoh have included "Independent Label of the Year", "Trade Publication of the Year" (for "Country Note Connection" magazine), "Rising Star-Modern Country" (Tony Garron), "Christmas Song of the Year" (Lola Davis), and several awards presented to Phillip Clarkson for his outstanding music videos. Country star, Sonny Martin, who joined Pharaoh International on its July, 1997, third volume release of GOLD RUSH COUNTRY, is best known for achieving a #1 GOLD RECORD HIT in the United Sates of "Truck Driving Man", now considered a true country classic.


With the completion of the compilation #6 volume CD in the GOLD RUSH COUNTRY series (2000), an entirely new series entitled "A LIL THIS 'n THAT" commenced with volume one released in 2000 and volume two in 2001. Volume three of that series (which is actually our 9th compilation CD project) is now in release (see artists and titles of that volume below). The difference between GOLD RUSH COUNTRY and A LIL THIS 'n THAT is not really much, other than perhaps a little more variety in style on the new series with open invitation to artists of all styles to submit their artist packages for review and inclusion consideration.
