Former Columbia A&R Exec Jay Harren Launches Fair Fight Music
June 30, 2011 at 10:57 AM (PT)
JAY HARREN has started up a management company FAIR FIGHT MUSIC helping independent artists navigate the evolving music business through management, consulting, and connection to the social causes they care about. He will be launching an artist/cause platform called DOWNTIME in JULY. HARREN most recently spent five years in A&R at COLUMBIA RECORDS and previously was MD at then-SUSQUEHANNA Alternative WNNX (99X)/ATLANTA
HARREN tells ALL ACCESS, "Basically DOWNTIME is a way to connect artists with causes they care about while on the road (or off). As you know, there's a lot of downtime for touring artists which usually leads to extreme boredom for them, so the idea is for them to donate a small portion of that time to a cause they believe in by using social networking tools that they already use anyway (FACEBOOK/TWITTER)."
