Honors and Awards:
Director of Artist Relations
My name is George Miller, I’m from Costa Mesa, CA and a recent graduate of Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ with a bachelors in marketing and advertising. Currently I work at Zia Records as a trade buyer and floor associate. My passion in life is music and I have aspirations to open an indie record store. My whole life I have been surrounded by music. In my high school days I would be attending local shows every week and digging through crates at record stores for old cassette tapes. At heart I’m a diehard dead head so I have a love for creativity and art. I feel music is the ultimate expression of one's creativity and personal freedom and that’s why I want to be surrounded by it 24/7.
Social Media Intern
Hello, I’m Breana Brown, and I’m from the suburbs of Chicago. Currently, I am an MBA Music Business student at Southern New Hampshire University. I completed my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at Illinois State University in 2016. From middle school to my undergrad, I was involved in concert band and marching band. Pop music and the entertainment business have always been huge interests of mine and working in the music industry had been a goal of mine since high school. After figuring out what I was truly interested in, I made the decision to go back to school for music. At Black Dog Music Partners, I’m looking forward to learning new skills and gaining experience.
