Longtime music industry executive DAVID HALEY, most recently VP/Promotions at EQUITY MUSIC GROUP/NASHVILLE, has announced the debut of his new music promotion company; EDGEHILL MUSIC and MEDIA/NASHVILLE.
“I’ve had the good fortune to work in promotion for a number of years with a fantastic roster of artists and some truly professional promotion reps along the way,” said HALEY. “This new venture will allow me to take that expertise and apply it to a new model at the front end of the changes in the music industry. To look at a list of the artists that I’ve had a hand in breaking through the years is truly humbling."
Some of the careers that HALEY has had a hand in include LITTLE BIG TOWN, TRISHA YEARWOOD, The MAVERICKS, GEORGE STRAIT, REBA McENTIRE, BLAKE SHELTON and BIG & RICH. Previous to joining EQUITY, HALEY did stints at MCA and WARNER BROS.
“Having spent the last three and a half years working for an independent label, I’m well aware of the need for a service like we’re offering with EDGEHILL MUSIC & MEDIA. This non-traditional approach to promotion can now be a more cost effective option for a wide array of labels and independent artists alike. We will allow clients to effectively manage their expenditures, overhead, and growth. With EDGEHILL MUSIC & MEDIA we offer a quicker avenue to the audience and the consumer than the existing label model by combining traditional airplay promotion and the new social media outlets” noted HALEY.
Joining Haley on the EDGEHILL MUSIC & MEDIA team are MUSIC ROW veterans JOE REDMOND, most recently at ROBBINS/NASHVILLE and RICK ROCKHILL, who spent many years in promotion at CURB. HALEY and his team are currently working with DMP (DALE MORRIS PRODUCTIONS) artists JASON MITCHELL, DAN MITCHELL and TAYLOR MADE.
