Wind-up Records is a label from New York. It was founded in 1997 when Alan and Diana Meltzer bought Grass Records. This label's works are distributed in the world by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, except of Canada, where the company is Wind-up Entertainment Canada, Inc., and the distributor is Warner Music Canada. Wind-up is the biggest independent label in the world. The company's slogan is "Developing Career Artists".

On 13th January, 2009, Sony Music Entertainment issues a press release telling it has incorporated Wind-Up Records. On September 2009, the world distribution is given to the EMI, excluding North America.

Some of the artists under license with Wind-up are Seether, Finger Eleven and Creed.

Evanescence's Contract

"Wind-Up Records" is Evanescence's current label. It signed a contract with Evanescence in 2001 after a listening of the Origin songs (album published by Bigwig Enterprises, the former band's label) and other demos. Since then, nearly all of the Evanescence releases have been published under this label. Wind-Up published the band's albums (Fallen, The Open Door and the Third Album) and distributed many of the singles (except of the Imaginary and Weight of the World singles, both published by Sony in radio-promotion purpose).

"Wind-Up Records" also published the soundtracks featuring Evanescence: Daredevil: The Album (track #9 - Bring Me To Life and track #17 - My Immortal, 2003) and Elektra: The Album (track #8 - Breathe No More, 2005).

Amy Lee published, under this label, a non-Evanescence track in The Punisher: The Album (track #5 - Broken, 2004) along with Seether. The others Amy's solo publications are released under Walt Disney Records.
