We’ve Hired!

As you may already have heard, in April our team here at IC almost doubled as we welcomed three new team members in to the fold.

Now the dust has settled a little, and we’ve celebrated hitting the 100th catalog milestone, we thought it was time to give them a proper introduction.

So here goes:

First, we’ve got Austin who’s joined Elene and Ari on the Sales and Services team. He’s based in Portland, Oregon where he runs a small record store called Tone Poem and a label called Incidental Music. His desert island film, record and book would be: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Turiya Sings by Alice Coltrane and Mount Analogue by René Daumal.

Then there’s Christopher, our new Software Engineer, who works closely with Dev on building new features for the application and solving customer problems. He’s also Portland based and runs the label Sahel Sounds, which specialises in platforming music and culture from the Sahel region of West Africa. His desert island film, record and book would be: Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa, The Low End Theory by A Tribe called Quest and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez.

And finally Adam (me), who joined the team in the new role of Content & Community lead. He’s going to stop talking in third person for a second to tell you that… I’m here to help grow our online + IRL presence, create free resources and ways to connect, and give this budding community every chance to grow. I’m based in London and my desert island film, record and book would be: Harold and Maude by Hal Ashby, Things We Lost In The Fire by Low and Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration by David Wojnarowicz.

To quote the the Jobs page we all applied through, I know I speak for everyone when I say that we’re incredibly excited to be part of this team:

“We’re a small but dedicated team, spread across Los Angeles, New York, [+ Portland!] and London. We are an independent and customer-funded business, built on the lessons and sweat of a decade at the frontlines of the music industry. We’re a team of creative industry workers and artists doing our best to make a positive impact for the community that has given so much to us.”
