"We are very excited to merge today's new technology with the creativity of making great music, and then getting it to the fans." Rick Stevens, CEO.
No company can succeed without a clear vision. A good vision not only keeps a mutual end goal in sight, it creates a pathway for the journey. It keeps everyone headed in the same direction, while also allowing them to look around to get-and keep-their bearings.
A good vision stirs the creative juices and excites all who are a part of it.
ANR understands that the traditional record label model of the last century no longer works, so we develop unique strategies and inventive methods of creating win-win situations for our artists.
ANR also aggressively pursues opportunities to maximize exposure for its artists and excels at creative, outside-the-box thinking.
Each ANR artist enjoys the personal attention of a diversely talented and committed staff. We understand that every artist is different, with distinct needs, so together we create a one-of-a-kind road map to get each artist's music to the public.
