August 1, 2011 (Oakland, CA) Bringing 10 years of music industry experience, including A&ampR Administration for 20 albums at Cross Movement Records and a B.A. Degree in Urban Music Management from San Francisco State University, industry veteran Eric &ldquoeFUSION&rdquo Kampel has launched new company eFUSION Music and Artist Consulting. In an effort to help independent artists and record labels gain traction in the Urban Christian music arena, eFUSION develops the core business components behind the artists&rsquo music through consulting, artist and project development, marketing/public relations, and administrative services.&nbsp&nbsp
&nbsp
Artists commonly face challenges, such as understanding the music business, knowing the trends and changes in the industry, dealing with administrative issues, getting and staying organized, preparing flawless album booklet content and song credits, writing professional bios and news releases, and having connections to complete or market a project. eFUSION bridges the gap between business issues and the artist. Helping artists become entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence, establish income, and sustain success in the ever-changing landscape of the music industry, eFUSION Music and Artist Consulting is raising the bar in the Urban Christian music and ministry scene.
&nbsp
Kampel&rsquos varied experience as an Entrepreneur, Artist and Educator also includes: producing the nationally-broadcast Christian music video television show &ldquoThe Zone,&rdquo serving as an Executive Producer of the Grammy-nominated album &ldquoThe Dash&rdquo on Cross Movement Records, promoting concerts in Philadelphia, Cincinnati and the San Francisco Bay Area, representing artists, as well as teaching music industry workshops, facilitating community forums, producing audio and video projects, and DJing events. Working with urban youth has been a focus and love where Kampel has invested countless hours combining his talents with his passion.
&nbsp
Not only a consultant, Kampel&rsquos business experience plays out in his role as an artist in his own right: eFUSION.&nbspHe continues to make music under the eFUSION moniker via his production company SOULJIERS Productions.
