Earlier this week on March 1st, TuneCore proudly and officially opened its doors to the public to celebrate the expansion of our newest location: the rejuvenated neighborhood of Edgewood in Atlanta, GA!
Kwanza Hall, Atlanta City Councilman for District 2/Fourth Ward, kicked off the ribbon cutting celebration with opening remarks extending his support to the TuneCore Atlanta team and remarked on the milestone significance of the office opening for the Atlanta music community.
The open house event was attended by celebrities, Atlanta artists, industry executives, tastemakers and local business owners who experienced a night of mingling and celebration while they enjoyed music from a dynamic roster of DJ’s including Mikkoh, Xavier BLK, Bryan Michael Cox and a moving live performance from international TuneCore artist, Ayo (pictured above).
Leading initiatives out of the new Atlanta office is Phillana Williams, an industry stalwart with extensive music business experience and a shared commitment to TuneCore’s “artist-first” approach. Previously, Williams was Senior Vice President of Marketing at Universal Music Group. She has also plied her trade at music industry titans like Motown Records, Island Def Jam, Sony Music Group and more, working directly with top artists.
“Expanding our presence in a city so rooted in music culture is a tremendous step in our ongoing expansion, and we are excited to welcome Phillana to the TuneCore team,” said Scott Ackerman, CEO of TuneCore. “TuneCore is constantly striving to help artists around the world get their music heard and earn what they deserve, and the opening of our Atlanta office reaffirms our commitment to that goal.”
