While working for ten years in nearly every aspect of the music industry for such labels as Capitol, EMI, A&M and Morgan Creek, Jon Flanagan developed a unique sensitivity for the needs of young, developing artists.
95% of cds we receive for promotion have MARKETING ERRORS which we wish we had the chance to change before the cd was pressed up. Says Jon. Artists & Producers become too close to their projects & therefore lose the objectivity needed to properly critique their cd release.
He started RADIO & RETAIL PROMOTIONS in 1994 after having worked at several major labels where he saw talented artists get left behind in the rush for quick hits.
CAPITOL RECORDS TOWER
RADIOHEAD, BH SURFERS & DURAN DURAN were promoted by Jon Flanagan while working in the famous Hollywood Capitol Tower.
" We give bands individual attention promoting them regionally or nationally to build their fan base for CD & Concert Sales Increases &/or to be picked up by a distributor or label and customize each campaign based on an artist's individual needs. What I have formed is a home for developing artists who need the sort of attention my staff can give them."
RADIOHEAD, BH SURFERS & DURAN DURAN are just a few of the artists promoted by Jon while working for Capitol Records.
