FRED CASIMIR PROMOTED TO EVP GLOBAL RECORDINGS FOR BMG



Fred Casimir
BMG has announced the promotion of Fred Casimir to EVP Global Recordings where he will be tasked with leading BMG’s international team to drive revenues of BMG artists outside their domestic markets. Casimir assumes the new role alongside his existing role as President Continental Europe, which he has held since January 2016.

Having first joined the new BMG in 2009 from sister Bertelsmann company, Fremantle Media, Casimir was responsible for all of its music-related businesses across Europe including licensing, artist projects and music publishing. In addition to building BMG’s European infrastructure, Casimir played a key role in developing BMG’s recordings business, from the initial catalogue licensed from Sony BMG and the acquisition of Union Square Music in the U.K., to the development of the company’s revenue share deals with artists, and the breakthrough signing of Rick Astley.

BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch said, “The development of our fast-growing recordings business is an absolute priority for BMG, and the creation of this new role sees us building further capacity to accommodate that growth. In a globalised streaming world, success can come from anywhere and so we have structured our organisation to give all of our artists the best shot possible at maximising their international potential. Fred Casimir has played an important role in the development of BMG both within Europe and more broadly and I congratulate him on this promotion.”

Casimir takes on his new role as BMG’s recordings business experiences a significant run of international success including Top 10 chart entries worldwide for Kylie Minogue’s Golden with No.1’s in Australia, Ireland and the U.K.; Lil Dicky’s “Freaky Friday” reaching No.1 on iTunes in 38 countries as well as becoming BMG’s first No.1 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart; and A Perfect Circle’s fourth studio album Eat The Elephant reaching the Top 10 in 10 European countries including the band’s highest chart positions to-date in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. BMG is also preparing for frontline album releases from Lenny Kravitz, Alice In Chains, The Prodigy, Avril Lavigne, Dido, Lil Dicky, Marianne Faithfull and Boy George & Culture Club.

Said Casimir, “BMG has come a long way in the record business in the past four years, but we have really only just begun. We have a very strong pipeline to the end of the year and 2019 is already looking very good indeed. I am delighted for this opportunity to further contribute to the BMG success story.”

Anderson’s career began at AEG Live NW, followed by a position in tour marketing for Foundations Artist Management, before transitioning to the label arena in 2014. Anderson’s promotion to her new role as VP of Marketing for Mom + Pop comes after four years of progressing at the label.

Sources have revealed to Billboard that Spotify has offered a number of managers and indie artists advances to license their music directly to the streaming platform. Some of the deals see Spotify offering up to several hundred thousand dollars to management firms as an advance fee for licensing a certain number of tracks by their indie acts to the service after which, in certain situations, managers and acts earn 50% of the revenue per stream on those songs across the platform. Additionally, Spotify’s terms allow artists and managers the ability to license the same works to other platforms via separate agreements and retain full revenue from those deals, nor do the deals require acts to provide Spotify with exclusive content or master ownership. In making these direct individual deals, Spotify is turning over a slightly lower revenue share to the artist than to a major label, with the artist still seeing more per stream than they would if signed to a major.

In the period leading into forming Dega, both Aslyn and Kalen Nash were well into their own successful solo careers. Aslyn recorded two albums, one for Capitol Records, while also landing a spot as the touring keyboardist and backup singer for Kesha. Singer-songwriter Kalen was in the indie psych rockers Ponderosa, who eventually were signed to New West Records, where he recorded two critically acclaimed albums, with legendary producers Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, Real Estate) and Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT), respectively. The husband-and-wife team met in 2008 and married three years later, but were so busy with their own projects, they hadn’t really considered making music together. Seeking to see each other more, the two formed the band Dega and explored new sounds, in particular, anthemic, synth-anchored indie pop. Their self-titled debut album was released in February on Lemonade Records and contains nine tracks. One of the standout songs is “Ocean Love,” which is about the couple’s honeymoon in Jamaica.
