Sponsored by Businesswire

Today, ole Media Management, one of the world’s leading independent
music and entertainment content and services companies, announces the
change of its name to Anthem Entertainment, effective
immediately. Embracing some of the legacy of its past, the rebranding of
ole reflects the evolution of the company and its vision for the future.
Led by CEO Helen Murphy, Anthem Entertainment’s ownership, staff and
offices will remain the same, as will all of the sub-brands – Cavendish
Music, Compact Media, Jingle Punks and 5 Alarm Music. As part of the
rebrand, Anthem has released their new company logo and website at

“As the company heads into its 15th year, we are celebrating the
building of our successful independent global content creation and
entertainment services platform. It is also important to stop and
reassess our mission, values and our name,” said Helen Murphy,
CEO, Anthem Entertainment. “Looking forward, I want the name of our
company to more easily identify with who we are and what we do. We have
grown from a small music publishing company to a large independent
producer of content and entertainment services platform. Along the way,
we have expanded and now have deep roots in music, film, and television.”

Anthem Records has forty-two years of history, producing innovative and
outstanding talent and that tradition continues today. As part of the
acquisition of the Rush masters and publishing in 2015, the company
acquired The Anthem Entertainment Group, comprised of the iconic
Canadian record label Anthem Records, which was founded by renowned
artist manager Ray Danniels in 1977, and Anthem Film & Television
Productions. Anthem Entertainment is home to the legendary band Rush,
Big Wreck, Max Webster, Kim Mitchell, and many more great musicians and

Ray Danniels, CEO of SRO Management Group, founder of the
original Anthem Records and manager of musical acts including Van Halen,
Rush and Extreme commented: “It’s an honour to witness this rebranding.
When I started out, I never envisioned that 42 years later, the name
would become a platform for such a large international company. When we
went through the acquisition process, we had a preference to keep the
catalogues with a Canadian company, so this makes it even more
satisfying. I wish Anthem Entertainment and Helen Murphy the continued
success they deserve in the future.”

Entertainment is proud to create this new Anthem: one for the talented
creators, the hard work it takes to make great music and entertainment,
and the endless possibilities of their next chapter. As Anthem
Entertainment connects with new audiences and explore new opportunities,
their philosophy is clear: ‘This is an anthem for the creators. This is
an anthem for the hard work. This is an anthem for the possibilities. This
is our anthem. Let’s hear yours.’
With a bold voice, it speaks to
the core values: the shared joy, boundless inspiration and deep
connection of great music and entertainment.
