Founded in 2006, Black Cherry Group strives to be the benchmark in musician friendly services. Inspired by the slow demise of the music industry, Black Cherry Group was envisioned as a company that could help artists with the nuts and bolts of the industry, keeping in mind a musicians needs instead of using a corporate template. Indeed, with the company staffed exclusively by music fans, the idea is to provide the sort of service that they themselves would want.
Although Black Cherry Group is a new millennium proposition, its roots go way back, to 1953, when Black Cherry founder Jerry Segal opened Reliable Records. Segal teamed with Chris Leyva in 2006, combining his decades of expertise in the music business with Leyva’s energy and vision to craft a company that could help artists at all levels of their career. All within a single organization.
