Welcome Patrick Ferrell & Sheryl Cohen

Please join us in welcoming Patrick Ferrell as A2IM’s new Member Relations Manager and Sheryl Cohen as A2IM’s Manager of Admin and Special Projects. Patrick will oversee relationships with our Label Members while Sheryl will work on internal programs and special projects.

Prior to accepting the position with A2IM, Patrick held positions at Capitol Records in their Radio Promotions and A&R departments, an A&R Consultant at Spirit Music Group, a Project Manager at Jeffrey Drag Records, and he has also managed a roster of bands based in Nashville, Chicago & NYC.

Sheryl is a returning staff member. She was previously the Operations Manager (from 2010-2014). Sheryl left A2IM to become VP of Gary Douglas Music Inc where her primary role was band management. On the creative side, Sheryl launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a nu-disco/pop recording of original songs that she wrote, performed and produced. “Electrify” was released in May 2015 under the pseudonym Olivia Brown. Sheryl also wrote a novel, that is currently being edited, titled “Dear Olivia”.

We are extremely excited to welcome them to the A2IM team and be able to offer more services and support to our growing membership.

About A2IM:
A2IM is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit trade organization headquartered in New York City that exists to support and strengthen the independent recorded music sector. Membership currently includes a broad coalition of more than 700 Independently-owned American music labels. A2IM represents these independently owned small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) interests in the marketplace, in the media, on Capitol Hill, and as part of the global music community. In doing so, it supports a key segment of America’s creative class that represents America’s diverse musical cultural heritage. Billboard Magazine identified the Independent music label sector as 37.32 percent of the music industry’s U.S. recorded music sales market in 2016 based on copyright ownership, making Independent labels collectively the largest music industry sector.
