A great executive said there are good indies and bad indies, good majors, and bad majors. I was proud of the job the WBR team did on the new IRON AND WINE release. Artist direct has a great review of the new album, and a nice compliment to Warner Bros. Nice to see it shows how passionate we are about working hard for our artists!

On paper, it’s a contradiction to align the sanctity of non-corporate rock wit a major label, but WBR is brilliant in its handling of these types of bands. One needn’t look any further than the likes of Built to Spill and The Flaming Lips for examples of indie rock’s royalty who’ve enjoyed long careers untouched by “major label sell out” fingerprints. Given that information and track record, Iron & Wine—the namesake of Sam Beam—have graduated to Warner Bros. with the release of Kiss Each Other Clean.

Iron & Wine “Kiss Each Other Clean” Review — 4 out of 5 stars

Some moments on Kiss Each Other Clean are fragile and vulnerable and others are not of this planet and are unpredictable.

My name is Jeremy Welt, and I'm exploring the convergence of video, humans, technology and culture.

I've been working with Youtube and developing short from content since 2006, when I helped broker YouTube's first idea ever with Warner Music Group (pre Google), all the way up to playing a major role in Disney's Acquisition of Maker in 2014. I love combining data, technology and creativity. Throw in a quick culture detour as Chief Digital Officer for Revolt TV.

I'm passionate about the power of influencers, and consider myself lucky to have worked with some of the most amazing and forward thinking talent in the world. I'm a musician, creator, and tech enthusiast and I enjoy sharing and discussing my expereinces.

From SVP of Marketing at Maker Studios, and SVP of Digital Marketing and strategy at Warner Bros Records. I've put new ideas into motion with artists and technology for the last 15 years.

I'll be blogging about some of my projects, ideas, and attempts to launch new experiences.
