EMI America Records was started in 1978 by EMI as a second US label next to Capitol Records. It absorbed Liberty Records in 1984. In the late 1980s EMI America was consolidated with Manhattan Records to form EMI Manhattan Records, which later became known simply as EMI in 1990, then part of EMI Records Group North America (ERG) in 1992. Currently, this organization of labels is under EMI's Capitol Music Group.
On YouTube, a video channel with the EMI America name has been launched, though it contains videos from various labels in the US-signed EMI family. There is also a MySpace page.
Past artists have included David Bowie, Queensrÿche, Red Hot Chili Peppers, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Roxette, Kim Carnes, Sheena Easton, Blessid Union of Souls, Kim Wilde, Joe "Bean" Esposito, Naked Eyes, Talk Talk, Huey Lewis and the News, Go West, John Waite, Cliff Richard, and others. Current artists include Asia and Joss Stone.
