Merovingian Music also abbreviated as MRV or MRV Music, is a non-genre specific record label in Red Bank, New Jersey. The label was founded by Jack Ponti who is also CEO of the company. Shortly after, independent label owners Gregory Edgerton and Kyle Kraszewski were appointed co-presidents.[1]

MRV entered a partnership with Jive/Battery to release the MC and Drummer duo Big Heed and Alien. In early 2010 Capitol Records, C.E. Music (David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Inc.) and MRV joined forces to release the pop-rock band Runner Runner, which includes former members of Rufio, Over It, and Don't Look Down.[2] Merovingian signed Belgian rock band Black Box Revelation and has released music by Sebastian Bach and Anthony Hamilton via a distribution deal with EMI.
