THE MUSIC BUSINESS REGISTRY, INC.
Dear Music Industry Professional, Welcome to our Spring 2013 issue of the A&R Registry. Before we delve into the changes across our industry, we wanted to once again say a special thank you to all of our readers, subscribers and advertisers over the years. This year marks the 20th year of the A&R Registry's publication. Some of you have been along for the ride the entire time, others have joined us, left to come back later in new positions at different companies, and some of you are our newest customers just recently coming aboard. Regardless of your tenure with us, thank you. It's been an amazing twenty years!
It has been a fairly quiet two months in the A&R world. The main news has been the departure of several A&R executives who left their respective labels in Los Angeles including Jon Lind who exited Hollywood after several years, Andy Villalpondo who left Columbia to set up his own Consultation Firm WeBringTheHits, Alex Luke and Steve Prodholme who both exited Capitol and Kevin Kasatsu who exited Warner Bros. In A&R news outside of Los Angeles, Imran Majid exited Universal/Republic to join Columbia's A&R team and Piero Girmonti was named GM of the newly relaunched Harvest Records where he will report to Capitol Records Group EVP Michelle Jubelirer.
Shifting gears from the A&R world to the Film, Television and Video Game Music world, we are now underway in preparing for the upcoming 2013 Film & Television Music Guide (our 15th Edition). We have just opened up some advertising space for the new issue so if you are interested in reaching this incredible market and expose your company, service or artist to over 10,000 active Motion Picture, Television and Video Game Music professionals, please be sure to contact Ritch right away by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 818-781-1974. Our artwork deadline is April 26th, but we can extend that if you need just a little bit more time. Also, if you have any updates, additions or moves (or know of any), please let us know since we'll be starting our final updating soon.
We also want to bring your attention to Volume Four of the world's first of its kind free global music industry trade publication One Movement For Music, which features an exclusive interview with Glassnote Entertainment Founder Daniel Glass, who heads the label that's home to Mumford & Sons, Phoenix and The Temper Trap, amongst others. Furthermore, there's an interview with songwriter extraordinaire Diane Warren. You can get your free copy here http://bit.ly/14soHXZ
An important date we want to bring to your attention is June 20th for the Sync Summit NY which is the only event focused exclusively on the music licensing market and is designed to tackle the vital issues of music discovery, clearance, promotion, copyright/legal, financial models and best practices all in an intimate environment. You can find more information and register at http://syncsummit.com/. Another important date to put on your calendars is June 9-11, 2103 for the New Music Seminar in New York City. The New Music Seminar is the single most important event of the year because it convenes the right people you need to take your career to the next level. Over 150 of the most important leaders who are creating a new music business will be speaking about the amazing opportunities in this new business. The NMS brings together labels, A&R people, producers, managers, publishers, PROs, booking agents and promoters, lawyers, music supervisors, radio programmers, press, and artist services that can help you to have greater success.
