ALICE IN CHAINS Joins Forces With FULL CIRCLE LICENSING

ALICE IN CHAINSJerry Cantrell, Mike Inez and Sean Kinney — have joined forces with music industry veteran Toni Profera of Full Circle to handle their publishing placement. While Sony BMG has control of the ALICE IN CHAINS masters, Profera and her team will be working to seek placement for the music.

"Full Circle is committed to working with both Sony BMG and ALICE IN CHAINS to find choice projects for these songs," Profera says. "We're all working together with a pro-active approach. The ALICE IN CHAINS songs speak to an entire generation and there's a vast untapped market out there. We will be seeking quality uses that build on the licenses ALICE has approved in the past, including films and soundtracks for 'The Perfect Storm', 'Clerks', 'Black Hawk Down', 'Singles' and 'Spiderman'; on TV, 'Cold Case'; and in video games 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' and 'Guitar Hero II'."

ALICE IN CHAINS has a catalog that has sold well in excess of 14 million in the U.S. Some of their most iconic songs include "Man In The Box", "Rooster", "Nutshell", "No Excuses", "Them Bones", and "Angry Chair". Having defined the Seattle grunge sound of the early '90s, they have recently re-launched and are currently on a worldwide tour getting rave reviews.

Profera founded Full Circle after spending 25 years working in the ranks of the major record label and distribution systems as a retail specialist and marketing executive with a marketing company under the Hits magazine umbrella, of which she was a principal. In 2003, she left to form a new venture that uses a pro-active effort of promoting both the writers and the artists, through an artist development approach to the film and TV community. She has a varied roster of catalogs, producers, and composers.
