How can we help you

CEN is an artist driven company

CEN is an artist driven company that develops custom full-service marketing, management, and distribution campaigns through their relationship with Sony’s Orchard Music. CEN shares offices with the newly coined RED Music label in New York’s SoHo neighborhood.

  • All marketing plans are custom built, taking into consideration our clients’ needs and budgets.
  • CEN assembles and product manages a strategic team who work in concert on your release.
  • We charge a low distribution fee and strive to keep all marketing plans affordable. Clients are paid all income from sales and streaming less the distribution fee.

With over 50 combined years in the music business CEN prides itself on utilizing old school methodology in conjunction with 21st century technology. Release options range from full service distribution to all-encompassing marketing campaigns, with the goal of moving artists higher on the ladder to success than where they are currently.

It is always our goal to be artist driven, maintain the artist’s credibility, and be guided by the artist’s vision. CEN takes no ownership of masters, copyrights or publishing and the artist/client always has the final say in all decisions.

In 2009 the CEN partners launched and continue to manage the Sony Music International division SIN (SonyMusic Independent Network), which is charged with developing Sony’s international artists in the states. Working in conjunction with RED Music (previously RED Distribution), SIN releases hundreds of titles a year; recent successes have included The Veronicas, Mallu, Nothing But Thieves, Izzy Bizu, Jain, Kodaline, and more.

Andres

Andrés Sandoval-Zea

Online Marketing

Music has always been a staple of Andrés’ cultural upbringing, coming from Colombian and Venezuelan backgrounds. It allowed for a world of diverse music tastes to grow, today ranging from 80-90s Latin rock and salsa, to Japanese city pop, and an incredible love for older artists like Mazzy Star and Deftones, and newer artists like Steve Lacy and Faye Webster. From writing blog posts for DJs at iHeartMedia, to freelance writing gigs in music and entertainment like CBR.com, combined with a knack for writing and marketing music, working on artist pitches and playlisting seemed like the natural path to take joining the CEN team.

He values the importance of broadening one’s horizons and getting out of your comfort zone, musically or otherwise. As the industry constantly evolves, so should our tastes.
