I have been working in the music industry since 1999, the beginning of the end of traditional music consumption.
My experience includes working in music retail, Warner Music, running my own independent music company Shake Appeal and most recently starting my tech startup, Maven. During my career, I focused primarily on the publicity and promotional sector of the industry, specifically working with independent artists.
Disruption in both the music and media industries over the past decade has dramatically affected the way we promote music. In 2015 I entered the tech startup world to build a platform that will help music promotion in the digital age.
Maven is a music promotion platform that gives writers, radio hosts and other music tastemakers access to post recommendations. It also allows fans to follow them and create their own feed of suggestions that can link straight to their streaming service.
