Former EMMIS Alternative WRXP/NEW YORK MD/afternooner BRIAN PHILLIPS has been appointed Head Of Promotion & Artist Development for MEGAFORCE RECORDS. He will be based in MEGAFORCE'S NYC office.
In this role, PHILLIPS will execute all promotional and artist development plans for the label’s roster not only of MEGAFORCE but it's parent companies MRI and TRANSDREAMER. He will spearhead new campaigns coming from AGAINST ME, CHRIS ROBINSON of THE BLACK CROWES, CITIZEN COPE, THE CULT, SLIGHTLY STOOPID, THE RAPTURE, ANTHRAX and BLUE OCTOBER, among others.
"We are excited to have BRIAN join us as we continue to expand," said MISSI CALLAZZO of MEGAFORCE. "His radio knowledge is one of the most respected in the music industry and we look forward to having his exceptional skill set put our artists and labels at a marketing advantage."
PHILLIPS said, "MEGAFORCE and MRI have always been interesting in how they operate and were quite pioneering in the early '90s by establishing MRI as the leading distributor of artist-owned entities. "MEGAFORCE's diversity continues to amaze me -- from the beginnings of METALLICA to new artists such as DAS RACIST and IAMDYNAMITE."
