ATLANTA, GA (CelebrityAccess) — Blake Morgan, Artist / CEO & Owner – ECR Music Group, was presented with AirPlay Direct’s third “Iconic Innovators” Award.
AirPlay Direct’s “Iconic Innovators” Award honors the visionaries who have openly embraced digital innovation in the music industry. The AirPlay Direct "Iconic Innovators" Award is presented annually to the member of AirPlay Direct that best embraces the vision and opportunities that digital innovation in the music industry has and continues to create.
“Blake is a truly exceptional person and exemplifies the definition of ‘Iconic Innovator’." stated Lynda Weingartz, CEO – AirPlay Direct. "He has a talent very few people have…the ability to create beautiful art, and then turn it into relevant commerce.”
As an integral component to the “Iconic Innovators” Award, AirPlay Direct has awarded Mr. Morgan a $50,000 AirPlay Direct “Marketing & Awareness” Campaign to accelerate his on-going brand development and global radio distribution footprint for ECR Music Group's new releases and catalog… including Blake’s personal catalog.
“I’m so honored to receive this prestigious award from AirPlay Direct––a company who not only partners with industry elites, but with countless hard-working middle-class recording artists, songwriters, and broadcasters too," says Blake Morgan. "AirPlay Direct demonstrates that music-makers and music-lovers who work in broadcasting are, in fact, on the same side of the critical issues that face today’s music world: we all want and need a fair and healthy economic musical ecosystem. My role in spearheading the #IRespectMusic movement makes receiving this award that much more meaningful to me, and I’m truly, deeply, grateful."
