Our Story

In 2005, between a NYU dorm room and a high school classroom, Jesse Israel, Nick Panama and Will Griggs started Cantora to put out MGMT’s “Time to Pretend” EP. There was no business plan or 5-year roadmap, just three guys who shared a calling to impact culture.

Evolution is in our blood. Today Cantora has grown into a cutting-edge music company incorporating a tech investment fund, a record label, a live events business and a music publishing joint venture. Our passion is discovering and nurturing great people and products across all walks of music.
