Concord Music – New Media Marketing Manager (US)

With offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, London, Berlin, and Cleveland, Concord Music has a diverse and vibrant roster of active recording artists, composers, and songwriters, and a vast and historic catalog of works by some of the most treasured names in music history.

Rated by critics as one of the finest jazz imprints in the world, CONCORD JAZZ plays an essential role in keeping jazz’s rich artistic traditions alive by proudly representing the works of Chick Corea, Diane Reeves, Curtis Stigers and Eliane Elias, to name a few.

Concord Jazz also has a strong focus on the next generation of jazz greats including Takuya Kuroda, Ben Williams and Jamison Ross.

Founded in 1973, Concord Jazz quickly became synonymous with high-quality jazz, becoming the home to such legends as Art Blakey, Ray Brown, Charlie Byrd, Rosemary Clooney, Stan Getz and Mel Tormé. The label has also been home to jazz icons Hiromi, George Benson, Al Jarreau and Kurt Elling.

Concord Records was launched in 1995 as an imprint designed to reach beyond the company’s foundational Jazz label, while staying true to its high standards of musical excellence and dedication to its artists.

Perhaps best known for its highly successful collaborations with legendary artists such as Ray Charles, Sergio Mendes, James Taylor, and Paul Simon, Concord Records has a long legacy of fostering uncommon successes for artists of singular and extraordinary talent and creativity who often defy genre boundaries.
