⏩ One Liners: beatBread, PRS Foundation, Isabella Lovestory


Music funding platform beatBread has teamed up with OpenPlay, a catalogue management software provider for record labels. “I’m THRILLED to partner with OpenPlay and offer improved choice and flexibility to indie labels”, says beatBread CEO Peter Sinclair. “OpenPlay offers indie labels the technical capability to take control of their destiny, while beatBread offers funding options to make a much wider range of distribution options financially feasible”. 


BMG has appointed Bryan Columbus as VP Recorded Music for Canada. He was previously Concord’s Label Director in the Canadian market, and before that had a marketing role with BMG. “His strategic and extensive experience in overseeing marketing campaigns make him the ideal leader to drive BMG’s recorded roster forward in Canada”, says the company’s Jon Loba. “We are pleased to welcome him back to the BMG family and are confident that his vision and leadership will propel us to new heights of success”.


PRS Foundation has announced 73 organisations that will receive support from its Talent Development Network. “It's fantastic to welcome the first cohort of organisations into our new Talent Development Network”, says CEO Joe Frankland. “We know from discussions with the sector how important longer-term support is to enable them to plan more effectively and deliver better talent development programmes for music creators”.


Isabella Lovstory has released the video for new single ‘VIP’. Her new album will be released this autumn. 
Ynys have released new single 'Gyda Ni (With Us)'. Their new album ‘Dosbarth Nos (Night Class)’ is out on 12 Jul.
Sara Wolff has released new single ‘Is It True’.
