Black River Entertainment has elevated Dawn Delvo to Vice President of Communications. The company has also hired Ally Roden as Publicity Coordinator.
Delvo joined the Black River team in 2011, and has been a part of the successful launch of Kelsea Ballerini’s career from the moment she signed with Black River as a songwriter and artist in 2013. The industry veteran previously spent a handful of years in between record labels and independent firms, where she developed skills in publicity, marketing and social media management as well as film and television licensing.
“Dawn has consistently proven her strong leadership skills and wonderful ability to articulate the vision and significant milestones celebrated by Black River Entertainment,” shares Gordon Kerr, President & CEO, Black River Entertainment.
In her new position, Delvo plays a direct role in the media and public relations strategies for the entertainment company’s studios, publishing, executive staff, label and artist roster, and works directly with independent publicity partners.
Roden graduated from Belmont University in 2021, where she majored in corporate communications with a minor in music business. She began her professional career as a contract Digital Media Producer and freelance writer for an entertainment publication. During her time in digital media, she had her work published in various online and print publications.
Prior joining Black River, Roden spent time at the Country Music Association, where she worked the seasonal position of Communications Assistant for the 50th CMA Fest. She reported to the Senior Manager of Talent Relations & Production, aiding in the collection of assets for the more than 300 acts performing over the four-day festival, coordinating festival events, booking stage hosts and more. Now as Black River’s Publicity Coordinator, she will provide direct support to Delvo.
“Thank you to Dawn Delvo for this incredible opportunity,” shares Roden. “Black River is truly a family, and I’m thrilled to grow with the company and to see where we can take Black River Records’ fantastic roster in the future!”
“Ally’s intuitive nature and work ethic are undeniable,” says Delvo. “Since our first meeting during the interview process to her having had several weeks under her belt at Black River, I am continually impressed. Ally is an excellent writer and communicator and is quickly becoming a highly valued team member.”
