Introducing Cookie Pryce, Senior Client Relations Manager, UK
So you wanna know a little bit about me?
Formerly a member of the UK’s leading Female Rap outfit ‘The Cookie Crew,’ I enjoyed a ten-year career as a signed recording artist, touring with an array of U.S. greats including Public Enemy, De La Soul, Stetsasonic, EPMD, GUY and Bobby Brown. I have also recorded with the likes of Gangstarr, BlackSheep, Davy DMX, Danny D, Roy Ayres and the late Edwin Starr.
Since hanging up the microphone I have embraced many roles within our industry from Marketing, Publicity and Promotion to Project Management and mentoring young people.
I’ve worked for and been a consultant for several Major and Independent Record Labels, Entertainment & Publicity Companies including: Universal Music-UK, Atlantic Records-UK, Koch Entertainment-New York, SMC Recordings-San Francisco, Strange Music Inc.-Kansas City, Propas International Rights Management-Canada, RSK Entertainment-UK, Timezone International-New York, MOBO Organization-UK, AEG/The O2 Arena-UK, Connie Fillipello Publicity, Emms Publicity, From The Rib Music, Imani Entertainment Group and Cash Money Records.
I have spearheaded Marketing & PR campaigns in the UK for some of the biggest names in the music industry including: Missy Elliott, P Diddy, Lupe Fiasco, Lil Kim, T.I., Twista, Brandy, Mary J Blige, KRS-One, Raekwon, RZA, Grand Puba, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Rakim, Danity Kane, Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, Akala, George Michael, Mariah Carey, Veronica V, Eve, Trevante, Kenny Dope & Rasheed Chappell and Tamar Braxton.
I’m also a board member at Diaspora UK, a non-profit music foundation supporting and lobbying for equality and diversity within the music and creative industries.
My experience led me to running my own bespoke consultancy service to the creative industry (UK and US). I’m not only a massive music fan, but also a former recording artist who was able to migrate my skills, passion, knowledge and expertise over to the other side of the business, becoming a one-woman band that conducted a whole orchestra and I’m about to go on tour with THE ORCHARD.
I love food & music, food & life, food & family, food & friends, food & cats, food & shopping and most of all, I love being ME.
November 2013 presents another opportunity……….I’m joining a progressive company!!!! I’m extremely excited about my new role and looking forward to working with you all!
On that note….. sit back and enjoy the in-flight entertainment, popcorn and drinks will be served shortly ;)
