ALL ACCESS has learned that SPIRIT MUSIC GROUP Chairman DAVID RENZER has announced the launch of a WEST COAST office. TY McKERY will head the newly founded Urban Division and TEDDY BLUM joins in areas of licensing and acquisitions.
RENZER said, "In addition to SPIRIT's thriving NY offices and Int'l presence, it is important that we have a strong West Coast presence. I'm sure that TYANA will make a success of the launch of our new Urban Dept. and expanding our already successful Film and TV/Creative Dept. in L.A. It makes perfect sense as we continue to accelerate SPIRIT's growth."
McKERRY spent almost four years at BMI and played an intricate role in various signings and in creating rapport with talent and executives. The result was an increase in BMI's market share with acts such as FRANK OCEAN, ERIC HUDSON and DAMON THOMAS of the UNDERDOGS.
Most recently she was Creative Dir. and acting manager for ANDREA LEWIS formerly of TEEN NICK's hit series DEGRASSI.
