David Sherbow’s perspective on the rock, pop, R&B, and hip-hop music business comes from watching thousands of concerts from Elvis to U2 to Jay-Z, a deep-seated devotion to the music industry, and over fifty years of experience with artists and their music. In his thirty-five year music business career, he has managed and booked major regional and national rock, r&b, and hip-hop artists, owned and operated a rock-n-roll booking agency, put out over twenty-five independent releases, made record deals for multiple artists, and was head of promotion for WMG’s Asylum Records (2004).
For over fifteen years, his hip-hop/urban independent record promotion companies were responsible for breaking over one hundred No. 1 records nationally for most major labels but principally for Def Jam from 1995-2004 and for Koch/E1 from 2004-2009. For the past seven years, he has immersed himself in the Internet music business space and has built and launched several music business sites dealing with music discovery and live music.
Sherbow blogs occasionally, has over 5500 followers on Twitter as @MusicBizGuy and wrote "One Fan at a Time: Building Your Music Biz to the Max" (2010).
