Amber Music Leadership and Team Members

MICHELLE CURRAN

PRESIDENT & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Michelle Curran began her career as head of promotions at both Island and London Records working with such notable artists as U2, Grace Jones, Bob Marley, Robert Palmer, leading to an extensive network within the music industry. Michelle set up and ran Logorhythm Music and the Real Music co. before starting up Amber music 15 years ago. Under Michelle, Amber Music has gained a reputation for producing tracks that have an edge. She prides herself on discovering and employing some of the most talented composers out there and it’s what makes Amber continually at the top of the agencies’ list when music comes into the mix. The company has a broad client base that spans both sides of the Atlantic, with offices in London, New York & LA. Michelle has produced music for over 2000 TV commercials including the emmy award winning PBS Fish, as well as “Lake of Darkness”, shown on UK TV starring Sadie Frost, and produced the music for the Hunger Trilogy TV films put out by Showtime directed by the Scotts’. This was comprised of 3 programs, “The Swords” directed by Tony Scott, “manashatwa” directed by Jake Scott, and “Narcros” directed by Russell Mulcahy. Michelle also completed a Nomis project with agency Johannes Leonoardo released in the U.K., for which Amber Music won a Gold at the 2008 Cannes Lions. Being considered a revered industry leader, Michelle is frequently asked to judge music categories at prestigious award shows such as The Clios and AICP. In addition, she has been recognized as one of the 16 “Most Influential Women in Advertising In the World” by Boards Magazine. Quotes from Industry Peers in Boards Magazine September 2003 Issue: Trevor King, sales rep, The Blue Rock Editing Company, NY: “And at the center of the festivities was and always will be that heavenly creature Michelle, a gracious and generous hostess, strutting around in her fabulous frocks and locks piled high, all festively adorned. For me, Michelle typifies all the best qualities of the Amber Music brand: smart, fresh, interesting and never dull.” Ken Yagoda, VP Executive Producer, Time Warner, NY: “She has an incredibly sophisticated view of the marketplace. But she also has a keen eye and ear for talent and for what will make a good fit. She also has a loyalty to her clients that, in an era of maybe too much greed, is totally refreshing.” From Boards Magazine September 1, 2006 article “Advertising Women of Excellence: Honored for Contribution to the Production Community”: “While she may come off a little devil-may-care, it’s well thought out – Curran knows who she is, and by a similar turn, she knows exactly what her 13-year-old London-, New York- and LA-based company Amber Music is: dedicated to the highest quality. Indeed, she considers ‘keeping true to what I believe in creatively and not being frightened to speak my mind when needed’ as a career highlight.”
