NEW YORK, NY – Solid Agency, the leading promoter of Caribbean music and entertainment has joined forces with LinkUp Media-owned JAMROCK Magazine, the leading lifestyle publication for Caribbean-Americans, becoming the magazine’s official international advertising and sales agency with Sharon Burke, Solid Agency founder and CEO, recently named the International Director of Advertising and Sales.
Under the banner ONE Music, ONE Culture, ONE Love, JAMROCK has become the predominant publication for Caribbean-Americans, blending the music, culture, trends, and lifestyle of all Caribbean nations into one comprehensive full-color glossy magazine.
Attracting high profile Caribbean celebrities such as Sean Paul, Rihanna, Ziggy Marley, and Shaggy-who is currently on the cover of the March/April issue, JAMROCK is natural fit for Solid Agency, a cornerstone in Caribbean entertainment outfits.
“JAMROCK Magazine speaks to the Caribbean-the music, the culture, the people,” states Sharon Burke. “Because Solid Agency has earned a big name and reputation in Caribbean entertainment and culture in the Caribbean, it is a natural fit for us to work together. JAMROCK will take Caribbean culture worldwide and I personally have to be a part of it.”
“Sharon Burke is an entertainment institution,” states LinkUp Media Chairman and CEO David “Squeeze” Annakie. “It is only natural that Solid Agency, the best promoter of Caribbean entertainment make the link with JAMROCK Magazine, the best lifestyle magazine for Caribbean people.”
Founded in 1992 by Burke and Jerome Hamilton, Solid Agency was born of the vision of bringing a sense of professionalism to the then disconnected Reggae industry. Today Solid is a leader in the Caribbean entertainment industry, promoting and producing events around the world, in addition to representing the biggest names in Caribbean music, including Bounty Killer, Wyclef Jean, and Shaggy among many more.
