Peter, President & CEO

From: Park Ridge, NJ

Favorite album: I love the fact that Green Day’s “Revolution Radio,” Thrice’s “To Be Everywhere is To Be Nowhere,” and Strung Out’s “Transmission.Alpha.Delta” are all recent albums that show the versatility and adaptability of punk rock music to continue to evolve and stay relevant in the music culture.

Favorite childhood movie: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Something not many people know about you: I know the full dance to N’Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye.” (And no I don’t want to show you or talk about it).

Favorite book: There’s not a lot of down time around here to read, but I did have to opportunity recently to get through King of an Empire to the Shoes of a Misfit, by Myke Hideous and I would recommend it to anyone trying to make it in the music business.

Favorite quote: “Music is forever; music should grow and mature with you, following you right on up until you die”.  ~Paul Simon

lindsay

Lindsay, Vice
President & CFO

From: Pearl River, NY

Favorite album: It would be really hard to pick a favorite, but my first ever cd (I’m dating myself here) was “Smash” by The Offspring. I got it in 5th grade and since it was the only cd I owned, it got a lot of airplay. I know every second of that album by heart.

Favorite childhood movie: When I was a child, I mostly remember reading or being outside in the dirt. So no real favorite movie comes to mind, but my middle name, Anne, was chosen by my sisters from the movie “Annie” (their favorite at the time I was born).

Something not many people know about you: I can’t do a cartwheel for my life. I couldn’t do one as a kid, and it hasn’t gotten much better with time. (Probably because I can barely walk in a straight line.)

Favorite book: I am a crazy book nerd, spending most of my “free time” reading. I especially love Sci-Fi and Famtasy. I’m not sure if I could pick just one book, but I am in complete awe of the author Sarah J. Maas. To have written and accomplished so much, so quickly, and at such a young age, is mind-blowing to me. (And I love her books!)

Favorite quote: “The ranger could cross a rope bridge without handrails, could fire her bow with deadly accuracy atop a charging steed, could scramble up a tree in full chain armor, sword and shield in hand. But she could not, for all of her experience and agility, manage the fancy shoes that [she] had squeezed her feet into.” -R.A. Salvatore
