SamanthaWolffIntroducing Samantha Wolff, Content Acquisition Coordinator

My name is Samantha and I am so excited to become full-time here at The Orchard as Coordinator for the Content Acquisition team! I have been a part of The Orchard since September, working part-time for BalconyTV, and it has been such a pleasure working here.

I grew up north of the city in Rockland County, specifically New City, and I graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans this past May, where I studied Business and Political Science. I can’t wait to work with and get to know everyone here. I am always down to go to see live music which is where I will be almost every weekend. Please feel free to reach out at any time!

Don’t Box “Classical:” Naïve, Classique & More

naive-classicalOne of the great things about signing a new deal with a label is getting the opportunity to apply our expertise to new genres, talent and strategies that best fit our budding partnership. With naïve, the second largest indie label in France, we have the privilege of working with experts in genres ranging from French Pop to Jazz, and one in particular for which I’m very excited: Classical.

Some of you may know that my earlier formative years in the last century were (mis)spent becoming very obsessive about Reggae — not difficult for a musical culture whose phonographic output, and yes I do mean as in Phonograms, could be measured in the number of vinyl singles being released each week — on average around 500. While of course, my musical interests vary widely, I admit that Classical music is one genre on which I’ve always wanted to work closer. Now is my chance!

KalieWatchIntroducing Kalie Watch, Theatrical Marketing Coordinator, Film/TV

Hello everyone! My name is Kalie and I’m very excited to be joining The Orchard as the Coordinator for Theatrical Marketing. I am originally from Duluth, Georgia and attended The University of Georgia where I studied Film and Television Production. I then went on to receive my Masters of Fine Arts in Film from Columbia University in New York City. I have produced a number of short films, including Aftermath, which played at over 15 international film festivals and received Best Dramatic Short at the Florida Film Festival. I have also worked on a series for the Travel Channel, in Development at @radical.media, assisted writer/director Naomi Foner and most recently, managed Studio Operations and Communications at Harbor Picture Company — a New York City based post house. In October, I decided to move to Los Angeles and am so thrilled to be a part of The Orchard’s LA team where I’ll be able to work on our amazing new theatrical projects. I look forward to working with you all soon!

The Orchard Takes On Recorded Music Royalty Processing

Orch-RoyaltiesOur policy at The Orchard has always been to provide our clients with best-in-breed service and opportunities to facilitate their business. What started off as a one-stop-shop for worldwide digital distribution has grown into physical distribution, performance rights services, sync licensing, audio fingerprinting and claiming, premium video services, compilations, marketing, and now, we add recorded music royalty processing.

Of course, we’re not just adding it lightly: we’ve acquired RoyaltyShare, who launched the industry’s first web-based platform supporting revenue processing and master royalties for indie record labels and music distributors, and we’ve made a strategic investment in Korrect, which has built a robust accounting software and data processing platform that supports the shifts in consumption models we’ve seen in the music biz. Together, RoyaltyShare, Korrect and The Orchard will combine our strengths to become the power rangers of royalty processing for independent record labels.
