According to Courtney M. Anderson, music is his life force. It’s also a source of creative expression, one which has afforded him the opportunity to build a well-rounded career that spans multiple disciplines ranging from A&R and marketing to talent management, promotion and production.
In 2009, he launched Courtney M. Anderson Music Curation, a consulting firm which specializes in the production of original and remixed music. To date, he has curated 22 number #1 dance singles for Beyonce’ including Single Ladies, Pretty Hurts, Love on Top, Blow and Halo, among them. His discography also includes remixes for Michelle Williams’ gospel singles Say Yes and We Break the Dawn as well as Ultra Nate’s international dance hit, Waiting on You (featuring Michelle Williams), on which he served as executive producer.
Prior to pursuing his passion for dance music, Anderson began his career as Associate Director, Video Promotion at Columbia Records where he spearheaded music video and content placement for Mariah Carey, Nas, Ricky Martin, Aerosmith and then-budding multi Grammy-winning trio, Destiny’s Child. After joining MTV Networks as a Talent Booker for the Video Music Awards and TRL, he switched gears and shifted to artist management with Violator Management & Monami Entertainment. He later served as Manager and Sr. Director of Marketing & Artist Management at Music World Entertainment where he oversaw album, single, stage, screen and tour commitments for a roster including Beyonce’, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Solange. During his three-year tenure, he lent his talents to the Dreamgirls soundtrack and developed a dance music imprint which earned 18 #1 hits and secured the #1 Dance Label Imprint position in Billboard magazine’s year-end industry wrap-up for 2009. In addition, he’s been quoted in Black Enterprise & Out magazines.
Looking toward the future, his vision is crystal clear. “My goal is to continuously evolve as creator of aural vibes that can be felt and heard around the world. I just want to make people dance.”
A native New Yorker, Anderson is based in Harlem USA.
