Canada-based ole Media Management has changed its name to 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 including Cavendish Music, Compact Media, Jingle Punks and 5 Alarm Music.
As part of the rebrand, Anthem has released their new company logo and website.
Anthem Records has forty-two years of history. As part of the acquisition of the Rush masters and publishing in 2015, the company acquired The Anthem Entertainment Group, comprised of the iconic Canadian record label Anthem Records, which was founded by renowned artist manager Ray Danniels in 1977, and Anthem Film & Television Productions.
Anthem Entertainment is home to the legendary band Rush, Big Wreck, Max Webster, Kim Mitchell, and many more great musicians and singers.
“As the company heads into its 15th year, we are celebrating the building of our successful independent global content creation and entertainment services platform.”

Helen Murphy, CEO, Anthem Entertainment said: “As the company heads into its 15th year, we are celebrating the building of our successful independent global content creation and entertainment services platform. It is also important to stop and reassess our mission, values and our name.
“Looking forward, I want the name of our company to more easily identify with who we are and what we do.
“We have grown from a small music publishing company to a large independent producer of content and entertainment services platform. Along the way, we have expanded and now have deep roots in music, film, and television.”
“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.”
Ray Danniels, SRO Management Group
Ray Danniels, CEO of SRO Management Group, founder of the original Anthem Records and manager of musical acts including Van Halen, Rush and Extreme added: “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.”Music Business Worldwide
