Looking to create a new level of synergy with their yearly conference, "The Gathering," Circle of Fifths Music LLC (CO5 MUSIC) have renamed, rebranded, reorganized and are relaunching as AMPLIFY Entertainment Group.
On the executive level, Tracy Brown will take the helm as the new President/CEO, backed by William Marion who adds VP stripes to his CFO/Regional Dir. of Promotion Northeast responsibilities. “As The Gathering continues to grow, we saw a need to marry our efforts and brand ourselves accordingly as new opportunities for THE GATHERING started to become reality,” Brown commented to All Access Music Group. “Both AMPLIFY and The Gathering are already fixtures in the alternative community. We wanted to make the companies synonymous in people’s minds: Think of AMPLIFY and you think of The Gathering.”
Drew Murray, VP/Promotion will oversee the staff and day to day promotion activities. Edie Lundeen is National Dir./Alternative and Rock West Coast, partnering with Colleen Taylor, who joins the team as the National Dir./Alternative and Rock East Coast. Linda Galka continues as Regional Dir./Promotion West Coast and is joined by Bebop Hobel in the Southeast and Patti Martin in the South.
“We’re excited about the records we’re working now and looking forward to getting more new music to radio in the coming weeks! If you want to get your artist and brand a spot on this year’s GATHERING, you should start making your reservations right away. We were blown away by how many labels began reserving slots for their artists LAST YEAR!” said Brown.
