Rocketown Records is pleased
to announce the expansion of its staff with the addition of Jimmy Abegg (also known as “Jimmy A”) as
the label’s Image Czar. Abegg, a veteran of the Christian music and artistic
communities, “will oversee all things creative at the label, including
photography, imaging, package design and the visual arts (illustration, film
and video),” according to label president Don Donahue.
“We have many goals here at Rocketown, and few are as important as hiring
creative people who love God and want to impact culture. We have scored a
coup in the addition of Jimmy Abegg to our Rocketown family,” continues
Donahue. “He is a very creative soul, and Rocketown is fortunate to have
the opportunity to tap into his storehouse of talents and ideas.”
Abegg has been involved in the music business for over 20 years. He is an
accomplished musician, and his contributions as a player to pioneering acts
like the 77’s, Charlie Peacock, and Rich Mullins and A Ragamuffin Band have
been critically acclaimed. In addition to his musicianship, Abegg has been
recognized recently for his work as photographer, painter, designer,
illustrator and film-maker/videographer. His artwork and photography credits
are included on best-selling albums, including popular works from Michael W.
Smith, Mullins, Chris Rice and the Dove Award-winning Exodus worship
Rocketown also announces the promotion of Scott Cornett to the expanded role
of Manager of Creative Content/Publishing Liaison. He was previously Manager
of Creative Services. In addition to his responsibilities in the creative
content/production department, Cornett will also serve as the liaison for
Rocketown Music Publishing (in their exclusive co-publishing agreement with
Word Music Group, Inc.). He will work with Rocketown’s songwriters
(including Nathan and Christy Nockels of Watermark and Scott and Christine
Denté of Out of the Grey), the catalog of songs these writers represent, and
the pitching of songs to film, television and special projects.
