      • I devised campaign emails for PR to connect fans to artist tours, merchandise and info; recruit new artists online via social media (YouTube, Soundcloud) and attending live gigs; correspond with songwriters or producers for key collaborations and artist development. I discovered artist Emily Krueger, built a professional relationship, formalised her signing to the company and assisted with artist management which directly led to the record deal with ‘Majestic Records’ for her band, Zoology.
