DDEAN REYNOLDS (CEO)
Growing up in Jamaica, Dean Reynolds jumped headfirst into the music industry. He later teamed up with local bands, and gained a wealth of exposure covering the various music circuits on the island. Lester Lewis, the pioneer of reggae gospel, caught wind of Dean’s musical skills and hired him as a bass player. They toured the Caribbean and UK for several years, before Dean moved on to a short stint at the local Christian radio station, LOVE 101 fm, as an assistant outside broadcast engineer. After migrating to New York City, Dean began a career in television, where he later produced a weekly music video segment called, The Playlist: for JCTV a subsidiary of TBN.
Reynolds is harnessing all of his experiences to present music that people can be encouraged by. Along the way, Dean diversified his skills as a musician, working as a music publicist, band director, stage manager, TV producer, radio program director, and now focuses on music publishing and licensing. In 2015, Dean completed a course in Music Publishing 101, at Berklee College of Music. His passion for music, led him to over 20 years of working with some amazing musicians and indie artists; including Kirk Franklin, Anthony Brown & Group Therapy, Donnie McClurkin, Gabe Jones, Celeste Buckingham, Carmel Paradise, Mary Mary, Cece Winans, Papa San and a host of other Caribbean artists--to name a few.
In 2000, Dean launched Dvine Entertainment Inc., but when he became a dad he placed his passion on hold, because he thought things weren’t happening fast enough to make provisions. But in Tamela Mann’s words, “God Provides!” God continued to open doors, and Dean’s vision was re-invigorated. He launched Dean Reynolds Media Group, LLC., scaling his skills to focus on the protection rights of composers and songwriters. From his very first publishing client, A’leithia Sweeting with Let Praises Rise, Dean Reynolds Media now manages a portfolio of various talent, distributing music throughout North America and the Caribbean.
When Dean is not working on client projects, or hanging with his two amazing kids, you can find him on the Bass Guitar at World Harvest Church, or on the road with Gabe Jones.
