Long-time record exec DAVE DARUS has been named President of A-BLAKE RECORDS, a HOUSTON-based start-up label founded earlier this year by HOUSTON businessman, BLAKE BARNES and entertainment attorney, DANIEL SANDERS. DARUS started as Marketing Director for the label, and has been responsible for the marketing/promotion campaigns for the label’s flagship alternative rock band PALE and country singer-songwriter JASON CASSIDY. CASSIDY’s single "Honky Tonk Heaven" is #1 for the second week in a row on TEXAS REGIONAL RADIO REPORT.
DARUS launched his own company DARUS MUSIC five years ago after exiting as President of KIRTLAND RECORDS. He has been a key executive at numerous management and record labels including ISLAND RECORDS, POLYDOR RECORDS, and INTERSCOPE RECORDS for over 20 years.
BARNES said, "DAVE has great vision. His leadership has brought A-BLAKE to new levels of success in the marketplace and our first Number One record - an outstanding achievement. I look forward to his contributions to our continued growth."
DARUS told ALL ACCESS, "BLAKE BARNES provides the right working environment for his people and artists to enjoy producing top shelf product... As well as the marketing support to team up with the best in the business for each mission. I look forward to working with everyone and assembling a well balanced roster of new and established artists."
