(Nashville, TN) August 21, 2009 – Twenty-eight year music veteran Charles Dorris has launched two new companies: CDA Consulting and Charles Dorris & Associates.

CDA Consulting focuses on live events, artist growth strategies, brand enhancement, tour sponsorships and connecting to the family friendly and faith based marketplace. “Live music and events are key revenue streams for artists, promoters and others. Many entities want to maximize income from this lucrative area and are seeking input,” says Dorris. “CDA Consulting offers guidance and strategic analysis in helping music and entertainment clients determine and achieve their goals.” The company’s initial consulting clients include: World Vision, iTickets, Executive Music Group, syndicated columnist John Rosemond, Grace Productions and Psalm 98 Productions.

Due to the growing demand for strategic booking campaigns, Dorris has also formed Charles Dorris & Associates, a booking agency focusing on representing special events, project oriented tours and select artists. As part of this growth, Dorris has hired veteran agent Jill Fetters to coordinate booking activity. Fetters was most recently agent for Annie Moses Band and brings extensive contacts with Music Ministers, Worship Leaders and Performing Arts Centers.

Initial clients that Charles Dorris & Associates represents across the board in all markets include: Integrity's Deeper Worship Tour, featuring Paul Baloche, Brian Doerksen and Kathryn Scott; Heather Payne and Mark Harris. The company also represents Ronnie Milsap, who just released his first Gospel album, and Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr. in the Christian market, while representing Bill Miller, Carpenter & May and Annie Moses Band in the performing arts center market. Other signings are being finalized and will be announced soon.

CDA Consulting and Charles Dorris & Associates, LLC are located at:

Charles Dorris & Associates, LLC
The Maxx Centre
277 Mallory Station Road, Suite 130
Franklin, TN 37067

615-236-1684, 615-236-3000 Fax

During his time in the music business, Dorris has been involved in the careers of such genre leading artists as Switchfoot, Kirk Franklin, Steven Curtis Chapman, CeCe Winans, 4 Him, Point Of Grace, Jaci Velasquez, Sandi Patty, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, Diamond Rio, Ronnie Milsap and many others.

Dorris was most recently Senior Vice President and Head of Christian Music for the William Morris Agency. He previously had his own agency, which he sold to William Morris Agency in 1993. Currently serving on the Executive Committee of the Gospel Music Association, he has also served two terms as GMA Board Chairman (2005-2009). Dorris has further served as president and is a current board member of Rocketown in Nashville.
