The North Carolina native says that he is beyond pleased to tackle this new opportunity.
“I could not be more excited and eager to take on the position! My experiences over the last decade as an internationally touring artist have given me an intimate understanding of the hard work and dedication required to cultivate one’s brand from the ground, up.I am looking forward to working closely with the global AirPlay Direct membership to not only grow their brands and businesses, but to build strong, lasting, relevant business relationships and partnerships that contribute to our ‘Global Music Village’ as a whole.”
This new position will find him reaching out to artists, songwriters, record labels, management, radio promoters, publicists, studios, and producers to ensure that they are aware of the services available through Airplay Direct.
