Commented RED SVP/Product Development ALAN BECKER: "JOLENE CHERRY's experience and background as a successful pop music A&R executive and the addition of THE CHERRY PARTY will add greatly to RED DISTRIBUTION's efforts to grow this aspect of its label group and repertoire. With this move, RED DISTRIBUTION solidifies another core commitment (to a radio driven formula for success) and strengthens its #1 position in the independent marketplace. We enthusiastically welcome THE CHERRY PARTY to RED DISTRIBUTION."
