Publishing is Changing (if you haven’t noticed)

Like the music industry before it, the traditional publishing business is facing new challenges and new possibilities. Technology removes barriers to entry, and gives creative people space to be heard and get noticed. Talent and the content they create was once held captive by content brokers. The prospect of “breaking in” was an arduous, career long pursuit.

AMBERWOOD is part of the next wave, helping talent and content find new ways to market.

Some will struggle with change. We rather like it. It’s about facing new realities and new markets in new and different ways, with enthusiasm and an open mind. There’s much to be sorted out. No one is really quite certain what the future holds. But we’ll put our two cents on creative energy, focus and working smart.

Would love your thoughts.

Recording Session in Nashville

Music is a central influence when we talk new possbilities in the digital space.

Closer to home, we find music to be downright inspirational, fueling both studio work and the eye-catching photographic images that are often so key to branding and promoting the faces behind the sounds.

Case in point?

There was a recording session in Nashville last July that we want you to know about.  Pines of Porter is Courtney Kruckeberg, Corey Jones, Taylor Berryhill, and Derek Cohen.  They’re making music in Nashville, and their sound is nothing short of awesome.  Stay tuned.  Literally.
