MusicDish Network & Partners Launch Groundbreaking Consulting & Marketing Service
Three influential U.S. music marketing and promotional companies have come together to provide indie artists a vast array of personalized marketing and consulting services.
MusicDish, Inside the Music Business (sm) and Serchlite Music have announced the Music Consulting & Marketing Collective (MCMC) - a full marketing and promotional service providing a new arsenal of cutting-edge offerings and avenues for indie artists looking to break into the music industry.
MCMC is designed to offer a new voice for emerging artists seeking access by developing a substantial suite of hands-on consulting and content-based marketing products and services. Each partnering company will bring their respective specializations under the joint venture, providing an unparalleled foundation of more than 40 years of music industry experience.
"While many labels and artists often lack the supporting marketing and on-hand expertise necessary to succeed in one of the most competitive music markets in the world," noted MusicDish president Eric de Fontenay. "The combined assets being assembled through MCMC provide a comprehensive solution for international artists by tapping into a network of leading music industry professionals as well as offering a comprehensive marketing package."
MCMC will integrate all its collective resources to provide access to leading industry professionals, including attorneys, producers, A&R reps, distributors as well as cutting edge marketing - exposing the artist to an international base of industry power players and music fans. On the marketing side of the equation, MCMC will combine promotional opportunities through mobile, online, video, television and radio to impact its clients' careers in a tangible, measurable way.
"With our collective reach, relationships, experience and desire to help the next generation of musicians, I believe MCMC will quickly become the ‘go to' place for artists who are committed to getting to that next level because our focus is about providing tangible, usable feedback along with result-driven marketing, says Eric Kline, producer/director and founder of the Inside the Music Business brand of products and services. "I'm really excited about joining forces with Serchlite Music and the Music Dish Network, two companies that I have tremendous respect for and who continually make things happen for artists - a tall order in today's changing music business climate."
"The Music Consulting and Marketing Collective is a new and exciting venture for Serchlite and I share a vision of representing and connecting with the independent artist, the hip-hop culture and the community in an honest and responsible way," says CC Carnie. "This partnership with Inside the Music Business and Music Dish is a natural business pairing. I look forward to sharing ideas and breaking new ground once again in a new area. We are not looking to just have another marketing company, we are looking to perfect our relationship with indie artist and the music consumer."
