Soundview Jazz Promotion

Soundview Jazz Promotion represents jazz labels and individual recording artists in an ongoing effort to maximize radio airplay for our clients at radio stations across the country. We're in contact with more than 200 key programmers via phone and e-mail, throughout every week. We particularly focus our promotion efforts at stations that are playing a significant percentage of "current releases" and are monitored by mediaguide tracking. We work primarily with stations that report airplay to Jazz Week and CMJ charts on a weekly basis. These weekly charts give our projects visibility in the industry, and we're constantly in contact with programmers to discuss the merits of our various projects.

Our goal is to elevate the national airplay profile for our clients’ projects on a weekly basis. I believe that radio airplay promotion overall is a key factor in presenting and developing each project- and each client’s career- in the international jazz community.

My Background:/

From 1999 to 2008, I worked exclusively for Palmetto Records as VP of Promotion, and I've continued my affiliation with Palmetto Records. However, in 2009 I launched Soundview Jazz Promotion and have established myself as an independent promoter. Over the past 3 years, I've promoted numerous high-profile projects including records from Dr. Lonnie Smith (#1 Jazz Week chart) Greg Skaff, Chico Hamilton, Lauren Sevian, One For All (#1 Jazz Week chart), Grant Stewart-(# 2 Jazz Week), Joe Locke/David Hazeltine (#1 Jazz Week), Tamir Hendelman (#3 Jazz Week), Matt Wilson (#1 three weeks CMJ Jazz chart), George Colligan, Bill Mays (Top 5 Jazz Week), Ben Allison (#1 CMJ Jazz Chart), Hadley Caliman (#2 Jazz Week), Orrin Evans, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Ray Vega-Thomas Marriott (#1 Jazz Week), Brandon Wright, Paul Carr (# 13* Jazz Week), Fred Hersch and Dr. Lonnie Smith again (#1 Jazz Week,again)

As a music industry veteran, I have a proven track record of success. At Palmetto, I charted dozens of # 1 projects by artists such as Dr Lonnie, Andrew Hill, Bobby Watson, Fred Hersch, Larry Goldings, Matt Wilson, Ben Allison, Javon Jackson and The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. I 've been the recipient of the Jazz Week "Promotion Representative of the Year" Award three times (2003, 2004 & 2008.) Early in my career, I worked for CTI Records and promoted many jazz artists such as George Benson, Freddie Hubbard and Stanley Turrentine. During my twenty years with Warner Bros.and Epic Records, I received numerous awards and managed hundreds of successful promotion campaigns, including projects with: Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys, Rod Stewart, Dire Straits, Van Halen, U2, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Sade, Luther Vandross, The Allman Brothers Band and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

With all of this experience, a passion for promoting the music, and long-standing relationships with jazz radio programmers, I look forward to helping up & coming and established artists attain their goals of maximum visibility and commercial success in the jazz arena.
