WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BOXER POET ---
Ben Kline, VP Revenue
Warner Music Nashville
Andrea is one of the absolute best promotion heads I have worked with in my 20+ years at labels. She is dedicated not only to the radio side of her job, of which her track record speaks for itself, but in the actual development of artist's careers by adding orginal marketing concepts and overall marketplace vision to each project.
I wouldn't consider getting involved in a new artist development project without first taking them through the Artist Identity process. Their insights have been invaluable to our whole team to a degree that has changed the way we approach everything we do. For the artist, it drew out stories that established a principle foundation to build a career upon. We got Artist Identity and so much more.
Andrea's ability to build relationships, nurture their growth and empower others to achieve their potential sets her apart in the industry. Her vast knowledge of the music business, coupled with her unwavering authenticity and depth of character lead Andrea to identify partnerships that solidify artists and their brand. I have no doubt that Andrea will leverage her creativity and unique talents to create stars in the music industry.
