Catherine Enny - Founder / CEO
Catherine Enny’s career kicked off in the early '90s when she engineered, and produced numerous Orange County garage and punk bands that you have never heard of. In 1991, she produced a young rock group out of Palm Desert, CA, called Kyuss. She managed and signed them to Chameleon/Elektra Records.
Alongside management, Catherine worked as Marketing Coordinator for Restless Records developing strategies and sales for such artists as The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave, The Cramps, They Might Be Giants, Ween, Dead Milkmen and yes even David Cassidy.
Her forward venture into management resulted in founding Guerrilla Management overseeing the careers of artists such as Fu Manchu (Mammoth), The Dwarves (Sub Pop), Sean Yseault of White Zombie/Famous Monsters, earning a Gold-Record in 1998 for cult-rock breakthrough artist Monster Magnet’s album “Powertrip” (A&M) and long-time client Josh Homme on various projects including signing his multi-platinum selling band Queens Of The Stone Age to Interscope Records.
In late nineties, a co-venture working with Warren Entner Management (Rage Against The Machine, Quiet Riot, L7, Deftones) launched Ignition Marketing, one of the premiere "guerrilla marketing/street promotions" companies to break emerging artists and established touring artists, including: NIN, Marilyn Manson, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, No Doubt, and many more Interscope, Sony, Warner, and Universal artists.
In 2000 a move from Los Angeles to San Francisco brought on a whole new spin into the conscious hip hop and political world with the signing of Michael Franti & Spearhead. Being the innovative artist that he is, Franti and Guerrilla Management went on to develop an enterprise approach to the marketing of a lifestyle through DIY merchandising, music videos, innovative digital campaigns, filmmaking, sponsorships, real world and virtual community building which equates to "experiential marketing of a lifestyle." This venture continues and with major success from producing 80,000 capacity Power To The Peaceful Festival for 12 years; producing internationally award winning documentary film “I Know I'm Not Alone.”
