Melanie Rodriguez and Aisha Aga have been promoted to Vice President level at indie label Better Noise Music.
Rodriguez has been named Vice President, Label Management, while Aga has been promoted to VP, Internal Communications.
The label has also welcomed Trish Sterling as Senior Label Manager.
Rodriguez has been with the label since 2019, most recently as a Sr. Director of Marketing.
In her new role, Rodriguez will lead some of the company’s key projects, it says.
She has worked on marketing campaigns for artists such as AWOLNATION, rock/hip-hop artist Hyro The Hero, country-rock name Cory Marks and California alt-reggae act Dirty Heads.
Rodriguez will oversee the roll-outs of a new album from three-time GRAMMY nominees NOTHING MORE, and the official soundtrack for Better Noise Films’ horror-thriller feature THE RETALIATORS.
THE RETALIATORS is set for a fall theatrical release alongside its accompanying soundtrack, which features music from Five Finger Death Punch, Bad Wolves, Nothing More, All Good Things, Ice Nine Kills and British act Asking Alexandria, who signed with BNM in 2021.
Aga joined the company in 2021, managing the executive office of CEO and Founder Allen Kovac.
Since joining the company, Aga has played a key role in organizing company-wide initiatives surrounding priority marketing efforts, and she will work to make the company’s internal workflow and human resources processes run more efficiently in her new role.
Trish Sterling previously held positions at Roc Nation, DefJam, and Downtown Music before joining Better Noise in February.
Sterling will oversee key upcoming projects for BNM, such as a 2022 album from rock band Five Finger Death Punch and a 2022 album from Mongolian rock band The HU.
