Flying Island Names Radio Promotion Team

Nashville-based Flying Island Entertainment has finalized its radio promotion staff with the addition of Shelia Shipley Biddy, Brian Fee, Jill Tomalty, and Bonita Allen to the team. The group’s first project will be FUNL Music artist Amber Hayes.

Industry veteran Shelia Shipley Biddy will be handling promotion duties in the Northeast and Southeast regions, and brings a wealth of experience from both labels and management to the table. Her career includes time with MCA, Decca (where she became the first female to lead a Nashville label), Vivaton and Stringtown. Most recently she served as manager and project consultant with Hallmark Direction Company.

Brian Fee will take on the West Coast/Southwest regions. He previously held positions with Lofton Creek, Quarterback, and the Bobby Roberts Agency. Jill Tomalty will focus on the Midwest/South Central region, her experience includes time with Curb Records and Word Entertainment. Bonita Allen will serve as Promotion Coordinator and most recently worked with WSM-AM and Westwood One. Nancy Tunick will serve as Flying Island’s label and promotion consultant, while also continuing her role as GrassRoots Promotion’s Managing Partner.

Flying Island has also landed a national promotion agreement with FUNL Music, home to Amber Hayes and Ty Herndon. Hayes’ current single “Wait” has climbed inside the Top 40 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.

“We could not be more excited at Flying Island about the announcement of our new radio team and our agreement with FUNL Music,” says Flying Island co-founder Nancy Eckert. “Our team is smart, enthusiastic and aggressive, and that’s exactly the type of personalities that we were looking for to help talented up-and-coming artists like Amber Hayes get the attention they deserve at Country radio.”
