BE MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT has announced the addition of former ROCKETOWN RECORDS Pres. DON DONAHUE as the company’s VP/Live Events and Program Development.
His role with the NASHVILLE-based artist development agency is to connect its artists with audiences through the creation, production and promotion of live events and unique sponsorship opportunities.
“This is a bit of a ‘full circle’ moment for me in my career, as [BE MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT Pres.] MICHAEL BLANTON was the first person to hire me in the industry more than 20 years ago,” said DONAHUE. “It feels like a wonderful homecoming. To be a part of a company like BE MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT, which is so committed to the artist’s entire career, is very stimulating. The production of live events is a crucial step for any artist to connect with their fan base, and I am honored to bring my expertise to the BE MUSIC family to make the live experience special for both the artist and the fans.”
DONAHUE launched the boutique artist label ROCKETOWN RECORDS in 1996. Prior to joining BE MUSIC, Donahue served as VP/Artist Development at INTERO ALLIANCE, where he co-executive produced the global AVON VOICES campaign.
