“This Summer 2021, I am celebrating the one year anniversary of Cool is Forever Consulting LLC,” Morelli explains. “After a long run at running Indie and major Distribution companies as well as start up Labels, I now assist artists, labels and industry partners with strategies and how best to navigate the evolving music business. Looking very forward to year two!”
