ARTISTDIRECT LABEL CHECKS UNDER THE HOOD

Veteran Of Record, Online Worlds To Be VP Promo For Field and Geiger's New Imprint
It's the Dawn of a new era at Ted Field and Marc Geiger's ArtistDirect Records.

Industry vet "Delta" Dawn Hood has been named Vice President of Promotion for the label by the company's Chairman/CEO Field and Vice-Chairman Geiger.

Hood, the first hiring for the label since Field came aboard last month, will oversee all promotion campaigns for the label's artist roster. She will immediately begin hiring a regional promotion staff and dumping all her tech-stock holdings.

Commented Field: "We are very excited to have Dawn join ArtistDirect. Her expertise and dedication, her innovative spirit and those incriminating Polaroids of me make her a perfect addition to the staff, and a valuable asset to our roster."

Prior to her hiring, Hood was involved in the development and launch of Music Meeting, an online digital music service. Before that, she spent eight years as VP Alternative Promotion at Virgin Records. She also served two years as National Director for Alternative Promotion at Charisma Records and regional President of the Right Said Fred fan club.

Added Hood: "Ted and Marc have a genuine passion for music as well as the vision and dedication to succeed. Joining ArtistDirect is an exciting opportunity to help build the future model of an ideal record company in a multi-faceted and very creative environment. But I refuse to get paid in stock options."
