Symphonic Distribution, the global electronic, latin, and black music distribution and label services company, today announces it has hired Jakub Alexander as Senior Client Manager to be based in the company’s New York office. A 16 year veteran of stalwart independent label Ghostly International, Alexander was responsible for signing and developing some of the labels biggest acts, including Grammy-nominated Tycho, Com Truise, and Shigeto. A Detroit native, Alexander is a music producer and visual artist as well, released under the Heathered Pearls moniker.
“We know how to add real value to independent artists and labels because our employees come from those backgrounds,” says Jorge Brea, Symphonic CEO. “Jakub has signed some of my favorite artists to Ghostly, has worked hard to see them grow, and we’re beyond excited to have him, his creativity, and energy in our quickly growing New York office.”
“Jakub personifies the ears, tried-and-true artist and label experience, and work ethic we want to bring to our electronic artist and label clients,” says Nick Gordon, Chief Client Officer at Symphonic and GM of the New York Office. “Also, he has a great dog.”
“Symphonic has those attractive components that a distributor in today’s music world needs — it’s a potent & supportive ecosystem they’ve developed,” said Jakub Alexander. “I know the challenges that artists and labels face because I’ve lived those roles. I’m excited to contribute to the evolution of what these creatives need from a partner by their side and expose those bubbling talents around us.”
