Brian Michel Bacchus

Grammy winning producer and ex-label head / A&R man that has spent time at most of the major labels and some Indies. He has a unique expertise in the music business including live presentation in a digital world.

Experience & Qualifications:

Over 30 years in the music and recording business. Started as the # 1 buyer in the #1 national chain and was then cherry picked for my first major record label appointment to perform national radio and retail promotion. Based on knowledge and long personal relationships with major artists, I was quickly promoted and then as an A&R executive and staff producer at 4 different major labels over the years. Eventually ran an indie label for Chris Blackwell and then went independent as a freelance music producer. Also garnered live production and stage management skills for the largest summer music & arts festival in the country during the summer festival season for the last decade.

Signed and A&R'd Norah Jones' debut recording, one of the most successful recordings and recording artists of the past 30 years, whose Come Away With Me went on to receive 8 Grammys and sell over 30 million units worldwide. Has a well rounded experience in the total music business experience (past and present) from recording & remixing to marketing & promotion to live production & stage management.

"Producing recordings with great artists is my main focus but I'm still consulting for emerging and established artists, , entertainment/marketing entities and artist management."

Currently A&R for impulse! Records©, a division of Universal Music France.

Past productions include Gregory Porter's Be Good and Liquid Spirit (Grammy winner) and Lizz Wright's Fellowship.
