TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — ole Media Management, the Canadian indie label, and label services company, announced it has rebranded itself as Anthem Entertainment, effective immediately.
Led by CEO Helen Murphy, Anthem Entertainment’s ownership, staff and offices will remain the same, as will all of the sub-brands, which include Cavendish Music, Compact Media, Jingle Punks and 5 Alarm Music.
As part of the rebrand, Anthem has devised a new company logo, and launched a new website at the domain anthementertainment.com.
The Anthem name comes from Anthem Records, which Ole acquired in 2015 as part of a deal to secure the masters of the Canadian progressive rock legends Rush.
“It’s an honour to witness this rebranding. When I started out, I never envisioned that 42 years later, the name would become a platform for such a large international company. When we went through the acquisition process, we had a preference to keep the catalogues with a Canadian company, so this makes it even more satisfying. I wish Anthem Entertainment and Helen Murphy the continued success they deserve in the future,” said Ray Danniels, CEO of SRO Management Group, founder of the original Anthem Records and manager of musical acts including Van Halen, Rush.
Today, Anthem Entertainment includes a music publishing division, recorded music label, production music division, as well as a film and television audio-visual secondary rights (AVSR) management company. In addition to Toronto, Anthem maintains offices in New York, Los Angeles, London.
