Guild of Music Supervisors

Since the late 80’s Cathi Black has been involved in various aspects of the music industry, gaining her initial experience while still based in her native Canada . It was there in Toronto where she got in concert promotion and merchandising with Brokum Entertainment and traveled with some incredible acts/concerts series’ such as Lollapalooza, NIN, Sisters of Mercy, Pink Floyd, Van Halen and Metallica. Her extensive marketing and promotion experiences led to her to producing music and film festivals in Vancouver at the height of the ‘grunge’ movement, and working with the industry executives responsible for breaking acts like Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden. By early 2001, the sunny climes of California were calling and Cathi relocated to Los Angeles where she jumped into the studio system and worked in the film/music division at Sony Pictures. She was soon thereafter offered a job at EMI as associate Music Supervisor to internationally renowned Music Supervisor Budd Carr, where she worked on such films as Enemy at the Gates, Rock Star, The Score, Life or Something Like It and Beyond Borders. In the next step of her career, she became one of the pioneers of the inception of music supervision for film trailers and she formed a partnership with a fellow music supervisor and together they went on to music supervise 100s of feature film campaigns for all the top trailer houses in Los Angeles. Currently, as both a freelance music supervisor and part of the team at Cutting Edge Group, Cathi continues to lends her expertise to feature films, trailers and commercials.
