Dan Miller has been promoted to Director of Client Services at Downtown Music Services.
Miller will report to Chief Operating Officer Ben Patterson.
Based in Austin, Texas, Miller will oversee the company’s global artist and label-facing Client Services Team, with a remit to “make the process of releasing and promoting music as successful and simple as possible for creators and teams”, says Downtown.
Miller’s career in music distribution began as a metadata specialist at Octiive Distribution, formerly Mondotunes, before joining Downtown’s CD Baby in 2017 as an Artist Representative.
At CD Baby, he rose to manage CD Baby’s Creator Services team.
There, he was responsible for the company’s roster of marquee artists and priority content, before transitioning to Downtown Music Services in 2021.
In addition, Los Angeles-based David Labovitch has been promoted to Content Operations Manager, reporting to Kasey Fries, who was promoted to the role of Vice President of Operations in November 2021.
During his six-year tenure at the company, formerly known as DashGo before 2021, Labovitch has played a key role in design the distribution platform’s processes.
Today’s news follows the several recent new hires and signings in the company’s UK team.
Chelsey Blow also joined the company as its Client Services Coordinator.
“David is an invaluable member of the Content Operations team.”
Kasey Fries, said: “David is an invaluable member of the Content Operations team.
“His extensive knowledge of our clients and internal operations has informed systems improvements that serve to benefit both Downtown clients and colleagues.”
“Our artists put their trust in us when they choose to work together.”
Ben Patterson, said: “When DMS receives great feedback it’s primarily due to the work these teams do day in and day out that supports artists like mehro and Lauri Garcia in their first release, or a growing superstar like Santa Fe Klan or Cheat Codes in executing DSP partnerships to reach new audiences.
“Our artists put their trust in us when they choose to work together, and we understand the incredible weight of that trust.
“Our service to those artists is the heart of our business.”
“The promotions of Dan and David reflect the stellar work that they have been doing.”
