Veteran promotion exec and current independent consultant/promoter LENNY BRONSTEIN, Pres. of HEAVY LENNY PROMOTIONS, has branched out and will partner with ASHTON CONSULTING’s JACK ASHTON to launch a full-service independent record label, FLASH MUSIC, INC. BRONSTEIN will serve as Pres., directing a field staff, dealing with managers and coordinating with its distribution partner. His independent promotion company continues to represent artists in Rock, Active Rock and AAA formats since 1980.
"Artist development was always the cornerstone of career building, but budget constraints and label staffs’ overtaxed roles diluted many campaigns. With the downsizing of so many rosters and the subsequent shrinking of in-house promotion staffs, there is a large opening for a custom label that can concentrate on and assist an established group or artist in its growth with complete representation at radio and on tour," said BRONSTEIN. "With a team of respected, experienced and motivated regional pros, these artists will get full coverage at radio and on the road."
BRONSTEIN began at A&M Records in NYC in 1970, headed national promotion until 1980, when he founded HEAVY LENNY PROMOTIONS. With only a 2 1/2 year break, he launched CHARISMA RECORDS in 1990. He returned to independent promotion in 1993 through the present, representing many multi-platinum and developing artists for major labels and indies.
