FULL SCOPE ENTERTAINMENT management firm, which was established in early 2009 by KEN MADSON in NASHVILLE, has now partnered with AVERAGE JOE'S ENTERTAINMENT to form AVERAGE JOE'S MANAGEMENT.
"Since its creation, FULL SCOPE ENTERTAINMENT has worked closely with AVERAGE JOE'S ENTERTAINMENT. While this will not affect day-to-day management operations, this re-branding is part of a larger effort to grow AVERAGE JOE'S ENTERTAINMENT and AVERAGE JOE'S MANAGEMENT,” said MADON, who is now CEO of AVERAGE JOE'S MANAGEMENT. “We're constantly evolving with the ever-changing marketplace to insure our clients’ success."
“Branding our management arm as AVERAGE JOE'S MANAGEMENT is a simple way for people to recognize that we utilize our label marketing tools for management clients whether they are on our label or not," added CEO of AVERAGE JOE’S ENTERTAINMENT SHANNON HOUCHINS. "And having our own marketing team also allows us to be better partners with labels that house our artists."
With the new company structuring, AVERAGE JOE’S MANAGEMENT has added RUSTY HARMON to their executive staff. HARMON formerly worked with HOOTIE & THE BLOWFISH and ATLANTIC RECORDS imprint BREAKING RECORDS. He formed MTM (MURPHY TO MANTEO, INC.) with partner MARK ZENOW in 2004, along with MTM MARKETING.
HARMON said, “"At a time when everyone in the music industry is talking about making changes in the way we conduct our business, AVERAGE JOE’S has actually done it," HARMON said. "I'm thrilled to be on board with such a progressive, aggressive, and proactive management company and record label." HARMON brings with him management clients BO BICE, SCARLETTA and NICK NORMAN.
ORLANDO McGHEE will continue at the helm the ATLANTA hub of the management company with offices at THE ARTIST FACTORY. Additional NASHVILLE staffers include HOUCHINS, LEX LIPSITZ, ANDREW PARVIN and JAMIE REEDER.
AVERAGE JOE’S MANAGEMENT now oversees management for ANAMUL HOUSE, BIZARRE, JB AND THE MOONSHINE BAND, NAPPY ROOTS, REHAB, SCARLETTA, SPACE CAPONE, THE LACS, BO BICE, LAUREN BRIANT, LENNY COOPER, IRA DEAN, RACHEL FARLEY, COLT FORD, JOSH GRACIN, DEMUN JONES, JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY, NICK NORMAN, MATT STILLWELL, TY STONE and MORGAN STREBLER.
