A rooftop party at the ICON in the Gulch, downtown Nashville, was the place to be on Tuesday April 21st as One Revolution Entertainment (ORE) celebrated their kickoff event. Prior to the celebration, a showcase in conjunction with the Nashville Film Festival with the musical talent of Nathan Lee and Rob Blackledge was held at 12th and Porter. In attendance you could find Doug Crider, Suzy Bogguss, Charlie Monk, members of Love and Theft, Rob Blackledge, Nathan Lee, Sam and Lynn Bush among many more recognizable faces in Nashville.
One Revolution Entertainment is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Dean Miller and Iris Thompson who are setting out to change the traditional concept of the entertainment business. ORE plans to act as a multimedia entertainment distribution outlet that will include film and television production, artist management and development as well as publishing.
Dean Miller has been in the industry all his life, as his father is country legend Roger Miller. He has been on several major labels including Universal South, MCA, Capitol and Koch as a songwriter and artist and recently worked with Iris Thompson on a television production venture, where the concept for ORE was born. Dean was the creative director at Bluewater Music, New Millennium Music and a staff writer for Sony and Universal Music.
The idea of change in our society and the ability to grow and change with the demands forces those in the music and entertainment industry to turn a critical eye to conventional thinking. ORE will focus on new concepts in integrated marketing techniques along with fan and artist relationship management. Both Miller and Thompson are willing to face these ever changing challenges and take the risks to create and facilitate a successful multimedia entertainment distribution outlet.
Some of the work already in progress is teaming up with established industry and entertainment executives who bring their past experience and knowledge to combine with the goals and vision of ORE. A relationship has been forged with Two Horns Entertainment Group (Bill Kunkel and Doug Metzger) that currently has several major film and TV projects in development, as well as over 30 years of experience to advise and provide consultation in creating broadcast content and discovering avenues for distribution. Wayne Leeloy, founder and consultant for Foundation Music Group will provide guidance in artist and brand development as well as his expertise in marketing strategy.
One Revolution Entertainment is dedicated to build relationships and collaborate to find new ways to expose their artists’ music to the industry and the fans.
