Nashville, TN – VeVa Sound, an industry-leading firm that works to preserve legacy recordings as well as provide artists and labels (including all the majors) with simple digital tools to facilitate ease of transfer, seamless 24/7 access, and quick and easy monetization, recently kicked off its landmark 15th year in the music industry with a VIP gala event near Nashville’s Music Row. The event was held on the evening of Wednesday, September 14, 2016, at Old Glory in Nashville’s Edgehill Village. Attendees included noted engineers and producers, label management, educators, members of the press, and other industry luminaries and friends of VeVa Sound from its storied history. Highlighting the celebration were remarks from VeVa Sound President John Spencer and VeVa Sound Vice President Deborah DeLoach, who each reflected on VeVa’s history (including its origins as BMS/Chase), rapid industry changes, immediate developments and the future direction of the company. Current expansion includes the opening, on October 1, of VeVa’s new European branch in London, UK, as well as the company’s exciting new digital platform, launching later this fall. The London office is part of the campus of Metropolis Studios, at The Power House, 70 Chiswick High Rd, London W4 1SY, United Kingdom.

Simply put, no other company is currently doing what VeVa Sound is doing, with its wide reach, turnkey service and industry-defining methodology. VeVa Sound helps artists and labels preserve and access their recorded work, and via its intuitive searchable online database, VeVa provides simple-to-use tools that verify, validate and help monetize recordings, both new and legacy. On the eve of this key anniversary, the company has been expanding all of these services, as well as embarking on new initiatives and a more visible presence in the industry and global media at large. Deborah DeLoach, VeVa Sound Vice President, remarks, “We thank all the industry friends we’ve made over the years, and all who came out to celebrate with us at Old Glory.
