(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.
