Aaron Levitt

Music Consultant and Creative CopywriterLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I am an experienced cultural strategist, music consultant and copywriter, covering online content, social media , radio, festivals and record labels. As founder of Stamp The Wax, I have grown the music platform to become one of the key UK influencers in underground music with over 70,000 unique monthly users and an annual turnover of £25,000. As an original member of Gilles Petersons’s Worldwide FM I have played a key role in the development of an award-winning online radio station. I have brought value to a number of organisations through effective marketing and communication strategies, aided by my productive relationships with brands, PR companies, booking agents, labels, DJs and musicians. My extensive experience driving cultural trends provides me with a unique insight into the behaviour of early adopting millenials. I am confident challenging the status quo and bringing new arguments into play to promote change, while being an excellent project manager who can effectively bring people and ideas together to develop practical solutions to complex issues. I have used my experience and knowledge to provide consultancy to companies as a music supervisor for their events, marketing and communications.
