Centricity Update 7/1

Posted July 1, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Greetings.
The insanity continues here in the marketing department of Centricity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel as items are being crossed off of the infamous marketing white board, the one filled with all of our due dates.
Here are a few of the finished tasks:
Aaron Shust’s new web site – www.aaronshust.com
Downhere EPK too. It is HERE.
Aaron Shust EPK? Did you see it? If not, watch it HERE.
And you must watch  the latest episode of CentricityU right now. It features the always entertaining Aaron Shust . Check it out HERE.
Did you see this video we did for Remind Me Of Who I Am? Meredith (our super intern) went around interviewing people. Watch it here.
Everyone have a great July 4th. Maybe I’ll see you at the U2 concert…
On to the updates…

About The Author: Steve Ford

Steve Ford started as an engineer at LA's famed Mama Jo's studio before crossing over to the dark side: marketing. After a stint in artist development and A&R at Sparrow working with Steven Curtis Chapman, BeBe & CeCe Winans, and Out of the Gray, Ford moved onto Star Song and later Myrrh, marketing records by Newsboys, Fernando Ortega, and Amy Grant. He served as general manager at inpop records, signing Superchic(k) and Shane & Shane; he started INO's rock imprint SRE, where he worked with Skillet, Flyleaf, Disciple, and Decypher Down. At Centricity, Ford oversees all aspects of sales and marketing, including radio, packaging, and hair product endorsements. Ford lists racquetball and "books" as his hobbies, which occupy what free time isn't spent discovering obscuro new music.
