CATHY BAUER, General Manager at Daptone Records, worked her way up the ranks at Lookout Records from the era of Mr. T Experience and the Hi Fives to Ted Leo and Pretty Girls Make Graves. She then served clients, looked behind the curtain, and marketed varied genres of content at the digital aggregator IODA. In earlier years she booked all-ages DIY punk shows, and throughout recent years consulted with bands and labels alike. At Daptone Ms. Bauer is responsible for sales and marketing of releases by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley and The Sugarman 3 which entails working with distributors, customers, management, PR firms, radio partners, and under the watch of 2 musician/owners, she is and integral part of the ultra-small team of three at Daptone. It can be said there is likely no aspect of the independent label business she has not touched.
