Aa part of my series about leaders helping to make the entertainment industry more diverse and representative, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Gabriel Gornell, an award-winning branding, production and distribution executive for the music and entertainment industries. He specializes in strategic initiatives for artists and filmed entertainment properties that reach audiences via multi-tiered, holistic distribution systems. One of his current projects is the ‘Back To Amy’ exhibit, live stream, and benefit commemorating Amy Winehouse on the tenth year since her passing.
And we ARE working hard to accommodate international time-zones. We have a GROWING slate of music & music-adjacent programming in ALL stages of production: Development, In-Production, and Completed. Our programming-difference is ALL our programs are supported with holistic (360) support across all touchpoints including Socials, DSPs, DDM, and Artist Support. PLUS we are taking pitches for Co-Pros.
A little pre-MipTV presser. Big thanks to #VideoBlogg for having me on the eve of MIP Markets – MIPTV, MIPCOM & more – I enjoyed our convo about recent shows, producing during Covid, producing with “purpose” …and yes, a little Amy Winehouse teaser.
As an Executive Producer on the 4-day virtual Lollapalooza festival, I didn’t get to direct too many segments. But this one I had the pleasure of taking care of. Joshua Homme’s acoustic take on Spinning in Daffodils. Hope you like it. Fun-fact: Josh did it in a single take.
IDLES came just when we feared punk, aggression, and rock with a message was gone. Thank god for IDLES.
Yes! LocoDistro is always proud to support the boys from Live4ever who continue to deliver with their finger-on-the-pulse of the British Rock scene—and never ending passion for the bands and their music.

You have a lot on your plate—and most labels and managers don’t specialize in every single aspect of the music business, anyway. Not to mention that a fair amount of today’s artists (emerging and established) no longer have traditional label relationships anymore. LocoDistro provides an unique, strategically based service that supplements what you have with what you need. Contact us if you want to grow your music business. We can help.
