About Amber Ravenel
Music industry insider and trailblazer Amber Ravenel was born and raised in New York City. After becoming frustrated with repeated rejections of her applications to internships at major record labels, she decided to take destiny into her own hands and embrace the entrepreneur within. At just 18 years old she began her label, Ravenel Records (later The Ravenel Agency), through which she operates not only artist business relations but also all of her marketing and promotional projects. At 20 years old, Amber won the NFTE (Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship) Goldman Sachs 2004 Entrepreneur of the Year Award for developing a then-pioneering social media mobile application.

The Ravenel Agency now represents a strong and growing roster of Talent, lead by international media personality Simone “Boss Lady” Amelia and reality television star Tahiry Jose. The Agency continues to work and consult with top music executives and record labels including Warner Music Group, Def Jam Records and Interscope Records, where Amber has leveraged her relationships with major executives to influence multi-million dollar deals for acts like pop artist Jared Evans.
