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]
