Music communications and public relations firm The Oriel Company has expanded, opening a Nashville office and hiring veteran media executive Charlotte Burke Bass as VP of Nashville Operations.
The Oriel Company has also partnered with Goldenvoice, adding country festival behemoth Stagecoach to its entertainment roster, joining fellow AEG properties Firefly, Head In The Clouds and This Ain’t No Picnic.
“It was a natural progression for The Oriel to find our own home in Nashville, and there is no better leader on the ground for that home than Charlotte, whose work I’ve admired from afar,” says Oriel Company co-founder Carleen Donovan in the announcement. “She’s strategic, smart, and relentless in terms of passion, vision, and execution. With her background in music, television, film and the arts, she is a welcome addition to our multi-faceted team.” The company was founded in 2020 by Carleen Donovan, Chloe Walsh and Jen Appel.
Burke Bass adds, “The Oriel has raised the bar when it comes to media relations and integrated publicity campaigns. Carleen, Chloë and Jen have reimagined the scope of PR, and achieved well-earned success at every turn. This presented the perfect opportunity to join forces and make a major impact in Nashville and beyond. I’m honored to now be a part of this incredible company.”
