Promoting exceptional music.
MUSIC LICENSING AND SUPERVISION
Lenny Zenith has been a performer, producer, writer, promoter and music licensing director. He and his wife Anne Karle have worked for EMI Music, PolyGram/Universal, BZ Rights, and Entertainment Weekly.
Together they founded Puddle Records (mid-90s) and garnered a single of the week in Billboard one of the first (and few) indie labels to achieve that distinction. They have licensed music for television, film, major motion pictures, worldwide commercial sync and master deals as well as mechanical licensing.
INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION
My wife and I co-owned and ran Puddle Records, which released, marketed and sold boutique 7″ vinyl and CD’s for such artists as Jenifer Convertible, Cardinal Woolsey, and Minor Planets. Billboard awarded Cardinal Woolsey, Single of the Week in 1995. Currently, I am promoting Michigan bands (Lightning Love in particular) for synchronization licensing for film and television.
My web experience began with the development of TasteOfBrooklyn in 1996 with no previous database or metadata experience. I then worked for EntertainmentWeekly.com, GM.com, and currently for the University of Michigan as an Interactive Project Manager. I’ve also developed multiple private and e-commerce sites on a freelance basis.
