Founder of Renegade Records

SANomineeYoung Australian of the Year2022

As the founder of independent record label Renegade Records, Bianca Nilsson is a mentor to artists all over the world – in music, and also in life.

Since its establishment in 2015, Renegade Records has grown into a buzzing record label that helps around five new artists each week. It also serves as a female-operated safe space for anyone in the LGBTQ+ community.

In 2020, Bianca saw an opportunity to help artists who weren’t signed to a label. She expanded Renegade Records to include a publicity service, offering tailored campaigns for artists in a variety of genres, including press and radio coverage, as well as Spotify playlists. Renegade Records has two employees, one local and one in the US, who recruit artists to support the business’s publicity arm.

Where some people see barriers, Bianca always sees opportunities to inspire. All around the world, she helps musicians to realise their dreams.
