Nemesis Proudly Welcomes Barb Rocks as VP of A&R

August 12, 2015

Nemesis Media Inc. and Barb Rocks are very proud to announce Barbara “Barb Rocks” Wahli as Nemesis Media’s new Vice President of Artists and Repertoire. Wahli brings an experience base beyond reproach due to her many years of service in the South Bay music scene. She is recognized within the music community for her fun and ambitious demeanor, while maintaining a strong and diligent work ethic, to ensure artists produce the highest quality products for their fans. She brings her personal brand of energy and productivity to the Nemesis Media team. Both Wahli and Nemesis Media couldn’t be more thrilled! This is the largest independent merger in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene in the last ten years.

Wahli is very excited to join a team that she “knows from experience shares the same high standards as [her] in business and will deliver above and beyond expectations for our artist roster.” Wahli believes that “Nemesis has a proven track record” and both organizations have partnered on numerous projects throughout the years. The merger not only feels right, but will benefit both sides tremendously. “Together we are unstoppable!”

The Nemesis Media team is also very enthusiastic about Barbara stepping into her new position, collectively stating "After years of partnering on project after project, and building an incredible mutual respect for one another, Nemesis Media knows this move couldn't be better and nobody could fit like Barb does with our dynamic team."

Apart from working as Barb Rocks, Wahli is also known for her continuing contribution to the San Jose chapter of Balanced Breakfast — a weekly casual networking meetup of musicians, label owners, bookers, publicists, mixers, engineers and bloggers that aim to share knowledge and strengthen the music community.

With her leadership, Balanced Breakfast San Jose has become a breakout chapter and a model for others to achieve. Wahli has also played an important role in numerous South Bay music festivals, including Left Coast Live, Santa Cruz Music Festival, and West Valley College's West Fest, among several others. Her guiding hand has been responsible for organizing some of the best events the San Francisco Bay has seen this decade and will continue to do so under the Nemesis Media banner.

With decades of experience combined, Nemesis Media Inc. will be able to reach out to more audiences and continue to place the needs of its artists first. This is our number one priority. If you love working with Barb Rocks, and are excited for the wonderful opportunity this presents to the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, artists and musicians, then please feel free to check us out on on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and your favorite local hangout!
