The Orchard announced on Monday that Jessica Phelps will be returning to the company as general manager of the Nashville branch. Before her most recent position at Q Prime Management, where she was the head of sales in the label services department, Phelps worked as sales director at Mom+Pop Music and as director of retail marketing at The Orchard.
In her new role, Phelps will act as the head of the Nashville team, leading strategy, development, label management and marketing for Orchard artists and labels in the market. In addition, she will maintain relationships with key accounts, while also attracting and signing new talent in order to widen The Orchard’s presence in Nashville.
She will report to COO Colleen Theis.
“We’re super proud to welcome Jess back to The Orchard family,” Theis said. “She is a highly experienced executive with a strong network, a strategic vision and a clear understanding of where the industry is headed. As an established and respected member of Nashville’s independent music community, she will be a force for our labels and artists.”
