Add Vance Entertainment CEO, Cary Vance and partner, Reneé Casteé @1 Music AVE are proud to announce Kevin “Kage” Jones has joined their team as the National Director of Mix Show and Club Promotions.
When Kage first started as a DJ while in college, he never imagined that music would be his career path. Upon graduation he worked at WWOR, a local TV station in their programming department. Once company layoffs interfered with his TV career, Kage was fortunate enough to land his first music gig working for an iconic Indie Dance label, Cutting Records, as their National Director of Promotion. Shortly thereafter, Kage joined a premier, independent promotion company, Elite/ADM, which became E.M.G. & Music IS Entertainment. For over two decades, Kevin was part of a winning team having successfully worked with some of the most well-known Music Recording Artists such as, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Janet Jackson, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Drake and more. After an efficacious tenure with Music IS, Kage is now lending his talents to Add Vance Entertainment and 1 Music AVE.
“I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of 1 Music AVE and Add Vance. I look forward to contributing to this great team and I am very enthusiastic to see where this latest chapter of my music journey takes me.”––Kevin ‘Kage’ Jones.
“For nearly 20 years, I shared office space with Kage in New York City, where I got to see firsthand how well he interacts with people. Over the years he built relationships with the Mix Show and Club DJs, Radio Programmers and various other music industry executives. Kage has a broad knowledge of music, coupled with exemplary communication and promotion skills making him the ideal addition to our team,” said Vance.
“Nearly 30 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin while he was working at Cutting Records. After having only talked on a landline phone initially, I quickly learned how smart he is. Once we met in person and danced like no one was watching, probably because no one was, I quickly grew to be his friend, like no other, to date. Kevin has an impeccable sense for what’s quality music, and strong work ethics that are evident in his passionate promotional attributes. I trust you will welcome him, no matter where he is, or who he works with, simply because Kevin ‘Kage’ Jones is a Rock Star,” boasts Casteé.
