PANDORA has tapped TOMMY PAGE, former record company executive and, most recently, Publisher at BILLBOARD, as VP/Artist and Brand Partnerships, effective immediately. PAGE's immediate focus is to expand artist development programming through both branded content, such as the Legends & Icons series and Off The Map, as well as live music experiences like PANDORA Presents and the upcoming "Live on Pier 26, HUDSON RIVER PARK brought to you by PANDORA" summer concert series that will feature headline acts such as ONEREPUBLIC, FUN. and THE SPECIALS.
"PANDORA is like lightning in a bottle for artists because we can do so many things for them on the Internet radio platform and with brand partnerships," PAGE said. "The PANDORA Music Genome Project and our team of professional musicologists have also been helping emerging artists get discovered by our 200 million registered users. My goal here is to help develop and grow those artists' careers and partnerships using personalized concert series and events."
Prior to joining BILLBOARD in 2011, PAGE spent 14 years at WARNER BROS. RECORDS where he began as a radio promotion/A&R executive.
"Music is an intense passion point for people. Artists love PANDORA and use it frequently to both discover new music and connect with their own fans," said PANDORA CRO JOHN TRIMBLE. "TOMMY is a music ambassador who will build initiatives that connect bands, brands and fans. We think an exciting part of the future of the music business lies in these types of strategic, multi-platform partnerships."
