About

I’ve spent the last 20 years wearing different hats in the music space from managing successful platinum artists (The Fugees, Wyclef, Lauryn Hill, Joan Osborne, Spacehog, Nine Days, and Vanessa Carlton) to serving as a booking agent within the Bill Graham organization (Blues Traveler) to signing new talent on behalf of Epic Records/Sony as VP of A&R to helping a major brand platform, Six Flags Theme Parks, with its music strategies and initiatives for all of its parks in North America.

I have my own management firm that was originally created to provide talent management services and has more recently focused on providing industry intelligence and guidance to both artists and brands on their social media/digital platform strategies. With a focus on the digital/social media landscape and incorporating my love of comedy, I have created a profile as an industry thought leader by creating satirical videos on the topic which you can here or on my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/pmalkin?feature=mhee

And most recently, I’ve been consulting in the online programming space, helping to develop channels by creating and curating content as well as market them by employing emerging social media platforms that enable the discovery and consumption of content.

And because I love comedy and watching viral vids take off, one of my favorite personal hobbies is to mash movies a la my “Batmash” which you can watch here. Hope you’re both entertained and educated!

  1. Great Blog Peter!

    Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    Cheers from Brazil.

  2. Peter – I don’t know you, but this is absolutely brilliant. And the scary thing is…… I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING YOU JUST SAID!!!! No wonder my average day doing business in digital music is utterly exhausting. I’m now posting to my FB, the 7digital US FB page. Please keep in contact – I like your sense of humor about this. You should do it at SXSW.

  5. Loved the 360 video and the two
    Digital overload videos. Very helpful and
    Totally overwhelming at the same time.
    Didn’t know whether to check all the sites out or just scream. How would any one person have the time for all those sites?

What are you thinking?
