Social Media - Music Marketing Startup Gains Access to Jazz Universe Through Landmark Alliance
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In the latest addition to its growing roster of the music business' biggest talents, groundbreaking social media marketing company Intercept Music has signed Paul Brown, producer of more than 70 number-one radio hit songs, as Brand Ambassador for the jazz genre. For more than four decades, Brown has produced the sounds of legendary recording artists including George Benson, Diana Ross, and Luther Vandross, earning two Grammy® Awards and numerous nominations along the way. As an artist and performer, Brown has released nine solo albums, all making the Billboard top-10 chart, and has had numerous hit singles. He will work as a critical liaison with the jazz community, particularly among emerging and independent jazz artists, to drive adoption of the Intercept Music platform and provide vital feedback to ensure that the company's services directly address the needs of artists today. The announcement was made today by Tod Turner, chief executive officer of Intercept Music.
"We have sought out the best high-horsepower talent we can find in every music genre, and when it comes to jazz, Paul Brown has universal acclaim," Turner noted. "He made his name as a producer and engineer and has achieved equal success as a recording artist. He has a unique, 360-degree perspective that's an invaluable asset to our team."
Brown is the latest addition to the group of Intercept Music Brand Ambassadors, who are music industry professionals, experts and influencers eager to share their hard-won experience and knowledge with the latest generation of emerging musicians. Each Ambassador has decades of experience and a track record of success in one or more music genres; they enjoy national and international renown, and view Intercept Music as an ideal way to connect artists with the most advanced method to promote their music. The Brand Ambassadors also help the company by conveying artists' marketing needs, which are reflected in the ongoing development of the Intercept Music platform.
"Intercept Music has zeroed in on the number-one challenge for today's jazz artists, in my opinion: how to distinguish your music from everything else that's available today," said Brown. "Their whole aim is to help artists get noticed for their music, and connect with more and more fans who will love it. This is something up-and-coming artists need to know about and I'm ready to take the message directly to them."
Paul Brown has lived the life of an emerging artist first-hand: he was a drummer before moving on to become a leading R&B engineer and later a top-notch urban jazz producer. His R&B signature sound has been a staple of urban music since the 1990s, and runs through his produced albums, including Boney James' breakout, Trust. He has created successful songs with many influential artists including Al Jarreau, Jessy J., Larry Carlton and many more.
In the last decade, Brown has performed as an urban, funk and blues recording artist and guitarist, collaborating with notable contemporary artists including Marc Antoine, Don Bryant, Chuck Loeb, and Chris Standring. He has performed thousands of times across the United States and internationally.
