Symphonic Distribution has hired industry veteran Peter Wohelski as its Content Development Specialist. Wohelski had been the Senior Label Manager at Beatport after stints as Director of A&R at Astralwerks and General Manager at Planet E Communications.

Symphonic has staked out its place in the competitive music distribution sector as a fully independent flat fee "artist first" distribution solution with a variety of flexible services and payment options.
“I am excited to have Peter Wohelski as a part of the Symphonic Distribution team," said Brea. "With a recent fundraise and one of our strongest years to date, Symphonic is poised to be repositioned as one of the world’s leading music distribution services. Adding Peter will help us redefine our product and service offerings as well as ensure that our current and future record label and artist clients have an experienced industry leader to lean on for their development.”

I’m delighted to now be a central part of the Symphonic team as the company looks to further evolve and reposition itself into an even more robust music media distribution and solutions service for independent artists and record labels,” said Wohelski.
