ole Media Management has changed its name to Anthem Entertainment.
The Canadian company’s ownership, staff and offices will remain the same, as will all sub-brands (Cavendish Music, Compact Media, Jingle Punks and 5 Alarm Music). As part of the rebranding, Anthem has also revealed their new company logo and website.
“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,” said Helen Murphy, CEO, Anthem Entertainment. “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.”
Anthem Records launched 42 years ago. As part of the acquisition of Rush masters and publishing in 2015, the company acquired The Anthem Entertainment Group, including the Canadian label Anthem Records that was founded by artist manager Ray Danniels in 1977, as well as Anthem Film & Television Productions. Anthem Entertainment is home to the legendary band Rush, Big Wreck, Max Webster, Kim Mitchell, and many more musicians and singers.
“It’s an honour to witness this rebranding,” said Danniels. “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.”
The company includes a music publishing division, recorded music label, production music division, and a leading film and television audio-visual secondary rights (AVSR) management company. Anthem Entertainment operates offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Nashville and Toronto with a team of approximately 200 dedicated industry professionals.
