About Josh Bloom
Since the inception of Fanatic Promotion in 1997, founder Josh Bloom has established a reputation as a passionate artist advocate, and Fanatic as a taste making and sales driving agency. Josh's music industry experiences in that time have helped keep him true to his conviction that nothing has as much meaning as the relationship between the listener and the song.
Today, Fanatic campaigns continue to be strategized and administered top down by Josh, who has had pleasure of seeing artists such as My Morning Jacket, Steve Earle, The Avett Brothers, Miranda July, The Decemberists, Portugal. The Man, Sleater-Kinney, Emmy® winner David Klotz (Dream System 8), Grammy® winner Mark Bryan (Hootie and The Blowfish), and Oscar® nominees Sufjan Stevens and Jóhann Jóhannsson, appear on the Fanatic roster over the years.
We all know how much just one song can affect us. It continues to be Josh's aim to create those moments, as a fan and as a Fanatic.
MORE ABOUT JOSH:
Josh occasionally writes songs, and was honored when Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney and “Portlandia” fame wrote about his song “Cancel My Subscription,” which he composed hoping Katy Perry would sing it. (The song eventually got all the way to her “people!”) Read about and hear it here.
In 2010, Josh co-founded Fanatic Records, a boutique record label distributed by Caroline/Universal. To date, Fanatic Records has released albums and EPs by Lachi, The Shondes, Shunda K, Red Wanting Blue, Charlie Belle, and Matt Bennett. Learn more about the label here.
