Quartz Hill Records has added two promotion and radio industry veterans to its label team. Longtime promotion executive Ray Vaughn has been named a Director of Promotion for the label while radio industry professional Greg Raneiri will serve as Manager of Promotion.
A 31-year promotion veteran, Vaughn has worked with some of the biggest names across all genres of music including George Strait, Tom Petty, Lyle Lovett, John Mellencamp, KISS, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters, The Who, Pink Floyd, Amy Winehouse and more. Additionally, Vaughn was part of Warner Music Nashville’s original WAR staff, helping to develop the careers of Frankie Ballard, Big & Rich, Dan+Shay, Chris Janson, Gabby Barrett and Ashley McBryde.
Raneiri has spent the last 12 years working in nearly every radio format with stops in Philadelphia, PA (WRDW / WXTU), Meridian, MS (WJDQ) and Medford, OR (KTMT). He most recently served as Assistant Program Director/ Music Director for KSON in San Diego, CA.
Both positions are effective immediately and will report directly to Quartz Hill Records VP of Promotion & Marketing April Rider.
“There is so much excitement over Ray joining our team and bringing his extensive knowledge, experience and passion to the label. Equally so, we are thrilled and very lucky to have Greg making his promotion debut from radio and bringing an unparalleled passion and love for our format back to his roots at radio. This rounds out our team perfectly. I could not be prouder to introduce such an amazing group of people as our Quartz Hill promotion team,” said Rider.
Quartz Hill’s first single release, “You Ain’t Pretty” by flagship artist Nate Barnes is available now across all digital retailers and streaming services.
