DaveSuchmannIntroducing Dave Suchmann, Quality Control Coordinator

Hey! For those of you who don’t yet know me, I’m Dave Suchmann. I started out here at The Orchard in October 2013 on the Video Services team, and I’ve recently transitioned over to my new job as QC Coordinator on the Operations Team.

My first experience in the music industry was when I was 15, interning at VuDu Studios on Long Island. After graduating from Berklee, I spent two years engineering and writing arrangements at The Mix Palace Recording Studio, 1.5 years at Avatar Studios, and 1.5 years with EYM Digital at Flux Studios, all the while keeping busy with freelance production and engineering work.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on many different types of projects — ranging from terrible high school bands, to various Broadway Cast recordings and the 2010 & 2011 NFL Superbowl and Tony Awards live studio recordings. I’ve held jobs where it was common to work 30 straight hours without sleep, and jobs where the “artist” was more interested in drinking champagne than actually doing any REAL work!

I have to say that working at The Orchard has continued and (I believe) will remain to be the most gratifying and rewarding experience for me thus far. I’m really proud to say that I am a part of this company and family!

Welcome, Jonathan!

DevinPassarielloIntroducing Devin Passariello, Quality Control Coordinator

Hello everyone! My name is Devin, and I’m thrilled to be joining the Audio Operations team here in New York City. If you see me around the office, say hi! I’m the big dude with the tattoos and beard (yes you can touch it, please just ask me first).

I was born and raised in Queens, NY which is where I still reside today. I have a Music Business degree from Five Towns College in Dix Hills, Long Island. Adam Levine from Maroon 5 went there for a semester or two, so we’re basically BFF’s.

I’ve been a music lover my entire life, and spent the better part of the period between 2007 and 2013 touring with a few bands, one of which is signed to Pure Noise Records, who The Orchard distributes (represent, woop woop!).

Unfortunately I reached a point in my life where sleeping in vans and not showering for days got kind of old, so I decided to settle down and get myself a “real job.” I found myself working at Warner Music Group for the legendary A&R man, Seymour Stein at Sire Records. It was an incredible experience, but a few months ago I thought it was time for a change.

I had been following The Orchard’s various social media accounts for a while, and always took notice as to how happy their employees seemed to be. So when a Quality Control Coordinator position opened up, I jumped at it. Thankfully I got the job and my happiness cannot be put into words! I’m excited about the experience that lies ahead!

MarinaSans_TheNationalIntroducing Marina Sans, Video Services Account Coordinator, Spain & Portugal

Hi everybody! My name is Marina and it’s a huge honour to be joining The Orchard team as Video Services Account Coordinator for Spain & Portugal. I was born and raised in Terrassa, a small city near Barcelona (Spain), where I attended university to study a degree in Business Management.

After working in the financial sector for about 2 years, I decided to jump into the awesome but also challenging music industry. I had the chance to become part of the Primavera Sound festival organization team in Barcelona a few months ago, which was an experience that led me to pursue a career in the music industry even more (here’s a pic of me with Matt Berninger from The National, who I met at the festival). And here I am!

Pop-Rock bands are my favourite and in my free time I love attending festivals and concerts, discovering new music and TV series to be hooked on, traveling, going out with my friends and spending time with my dog.

Welcome, Oleg!

olegrozovIntroducing Oleg Rozov, Client & Marketing Manager, Russia

My name is Oleg, i was born in Moscow in 1984.

I started my day job on MTV Russia and was working as a director on True Life (Russian Version), then I joined Faces&Laces, an interactive exhibition and music show, where I was curating music format and bookings. After that I joined Dream Industries and Zvooq, where I was involved in the product strategy, mostly focused on signing the indie catalogues and label relations.

My passion for music started during the school period, I was involved in Hip Hop and rave subcultures, which were very popular in Russia in the 90s (along with Punk Rock and Metal), when all the new things from the West started flooding our country after the USSR collapsed.

I graduated from Moscow’s Humanitarian Institute of TV and Radio Broadcasting. These were the times I started visiting different raves together with my friends, it was Jungle and House music. UK’s underground scene (early Jungle, UK Hardcore, UK Garage) was something that really drew my attention and I started to buy vinyl records. It was impossible to get music from the Internet back then (as it wasn’t even fully there yet :)), and that is how things became serious for me.

It was 2001 when I started to collect wax ­– that was the end of the Electronic music renaissance in Russia. I began to play in clubs in 2002; in 2004, I hosted my own radio show about UK Garage on Moscow’s first ‘Urban’ radio station, NEXT 105.2 FM (now closed). Later I launched the first ever Dubstep/Garage club night in Russia and CIS called Capital Bass (2006) and brought all the main artists (incl. Scuba, Kode9, Pearson Sound, Skream and many others) to Moscow. In 2012, Capital Bass became a vinyl/digital label as I felt that many interesting things are happening on the local scene and it’s time to push Russian producers and give them a good chance to release their music on vinyl.

My other hobbies include: custom motorcycles, asian culture, fitness, etc.
