Distribution, label services, and rights management company ONErpm has hired Caribbean music expert and artist manager Martin Price to head up operations and A&R at the company’s newly opened Kingston, Jamaica, office.
Backed by 10 years of experience in the Caribbean industry, Price (pictured) will focus on establishing the company’s presence in the Reggae, Dancehall, and Urban markets based out of Kingston as a part of ONErpm’s efforts to reach new genres and global audiences.
The office has already signed prominent Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall artist Barrington Levy for an upcoming album in Q1 2019, as well as Dancehall artist Ce’cile and Grammy award-winning producer Anju Blaxx.
Price is the Co-Founder of Caribbean Entertainment and IAM Management, and has focused his efforts on artist management and booking.
Within the last six years of his decade-long tenure in the Caribbean market, he has worked with over 100 artists at all levels, and has booked artists on six of seven continents annually, establishing his reputation as a leader in the global music industry.
“Like ONErpm, Martin realizes the value in understanding global markets and artists.”
