In her new role, she will focus on a variety of initiatives, including developing new business opportunities for the company, landing endorsements, partnering with key industry organizations, recruiting artists, handling A&R and working on promotions.

“It’s always been dream of mine to someday work with Tech N9ne and with Travis O’Guin,” Brown says of the owners of Strange Music. “I’ve been a long-time fan of Tech N9ne’s and Travis’ work, their business sense. I’ve been a friend to the company, kind of behind the scenes helping them with the retail side of things. Now that the opportunity’s come for me to work with them, it was a no-brainer for me to go to Strange Music.”

“Travis wants me to get in there and learn every aspect of the company and see how I can make things better throughout the whole organization,” said Brown.

Prior to joining Strange Music, Brown was the Director of Urban Music for Wherehouse Music, the largest urban music store chain in the country, and continued in that capacity when Wherehouse was purchased by Trans World Entertainment.
