GROOVESHARK has contracted with two music industry veterans, VINCENT S. CASTELLUCCI and JASON MILES, to serve as mentors and as active members of their advisory board.
CASTELLUCCI's experience includes executive positions with HARRY FOX AGENCY, CASTEL MANAGEMENT INC. and WARNER/CHAPPELL MUSIC PUBLISHING, as well as his own consulting firm. MILES, a respected jazz musician, has produced more than 30 CDs for such noted artists as GEORGE BENSON, ANITA BAKER and DAVID SANBORN among others. He won a GRAMMY in 2000 for producing "She Walks This Earth" by STING.
GROOVESHARK (www.grooveshark.com) is a peer-to-peer (P2P) music-sharing community that both compensates copyright holders for song purchases and rewards members who participate in the community with free or discounted music.
CEO SAM TARANTINO commented, "Yesterday's announcement of the availability of DRM-free files from EMI and ITUNES further reinforces our business model, which says there is a better way to buy and sell music online without DRM while compensating copyright holders for their work."
