Warner Bros. Records Intern

As a marketing intern for Warner Bros. Records and Reprise under Warner Music Group.  I learn what really goes into a marketing plan for high-level rock stars. From tour management to streaming numbers I take in the full 360 of a rounded out marketing strategy for musicians. Having particular taken part in the launch of a solo album for a high-level musician, I have been lucky enough to be involved in the evolution of this project. Seeing the thought of a project develop from a digital EP to the release of a physical full length has been an incredible journey and learning moment in itself. Soaking in the everything I can I have learned what goes into the schedule to get vinyl to date and day, video production, fan engagement, social media campaigns, touring, publicity, and more.
