143 Records is the record label of producer David Foster. 143 is a sub-label of Warner Records and Atlantic Records. The numbers 1-4-3 are derived from the words "I love you."[citation needed]

History[edit]

When record producer David Foster signed a deal with Warner Bros. in 1995, it enabled him to start 143 Records.[1] Foster gave the responsibility for running the label to manager Brian Avnet.[1] One of the label's first signing was Irish folk-rock band The Corrs.[1]

In 1997 Foster and Avnet concluded "logo labels" like 143 were in a "bad spot". Foster sold the label back to Warner and then became senior vice-president at the corporation.[1]
